Video Stabilization in Smartphones Explained

As I mentioned in one of my previous write-up about Samsung Phones with Optical Image Stabilization; OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) allows you to take a blurry free picture and better video, but what I didn’t mention is EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization) which allows you to record a shaky free video.

Optical image stabilization is a hardware implementation that is quite expensive and one of the reasons why you will hardly see it on mid-range and entry-level phones (though that is changing) while electronic image stabilization is a software solution.

Just because EIS is a software implementation doesn’t mean that it is cheap. It requires processing power that can be found in some mid-range phones and all high-end smartphones of today.

So, when looking to get a Galaxy phone specifically for its video stabilization feature, make sure it has both the OIS and EIS implementation. Both work hand in hand to output great pictures (uses more of OIS) and stable videos (uses more of EIS).

It becomes even better with Super Steady mode; a video stabilizer that Samsung introduced with the launch of the Galaxy S10 series. It is basically a well-implemented EIS on the ultra-wide lens.

So, if your galaxy phone has a gyro-EIS integration, there is a high probability that it also has super steady mode even though its specs sheet doesn’t mention it.

If there is super steady mode but no OIS, I think you can still get some good footage with the camera with just this feature.

How to Turn on Super Steady Mode on Samsung Phones

  • Open camera app
  • Tap on Video
  • Tap on the Super Steady Mode icon. The icon resembles an open palm
  • Start recording

Final Thought

All Samsung flagships since 2019 come with video stabilization at all levels which makes recording video on them super fun and easy.

It is also great to see that 2 mid-range phones from 2020 also come with EIS and super steady mode but I still prefer their 2021 and 2022 upgrades that also come with OIS alongside the EIS.

You have more than enough options to choose from if you are looking for Samsung phones with video stabilization. I really do hope this write-up was helpful to you.
