Should You Enable EIS On Your GoPro When Filming With A Gimbal?



A very common question I get asked on a regular basis is “Should I turn on EIS on my GoPro when using it with a gimbal?”. The answer is simple, Yes! EIS stands for electronic image stabilization and it is built into the GoPro Hero 5 Black and the GoPro Hero 6 Black. Under normal usage, this helps to smooth out the video when using your GoPro. But it can also help polish the video that you capture when it is mounted in a GoPro gimbal such as the FeiyuTech G5 or the newer FeiyuTech G6. I have put together a video sample doing a side by side comparison when EIS is turned on and when it is turned off to show you the difference and it is actually¬†quite dramatic.
