The second-generation 6-Axis Hybrid Gimbal Stabilizer 2.0 in the 50 MP rear camera keeps videos even more blur-free and shake-free, even when the camera is moving. This innovative gimbal OIS monitors Zenfone 10’s every movement, in every direction, and uses that information to adjust the whole camera module in real-time. It can compensate for shifts of up to +/- 3 °, so it can help smooth out even the wildest action, without optical distortion or ‘ghosting’.

Adding to 6-Axis Hybrid Gimbal Stabilizer 2.0’s superior anti-shake capabilities is its new Adaptive EIS technology. This uses the built-in gyro to detect movement, allowing dynamic adjustments to the size of the field of view to keep videos rock-steady at all times.
