The OnePlus 5's new 4K EIS is incredible

If you can remember as far back as yesterday, you might recall that OnePlus rolled out OxygenOS v4.5.8, an update that was mostly identical to but slightly less buggy than the preceding 4.5.7. The headlining feature in both versions was a new EIS (electronic image stabilization) feature for 4K recording, a detail that was considered a significant omission by some reviewers. Fortunately for OnePlus 5 users everywhere, the EIS looks to be pretty fantastic.

Exclusive: Nest is working on a 4K camera with advanced smart features

Google-owned Nest used to be one of the few companies selling WiFi home security cameras, but now everyone is doing it.

CyberLink PowerDirector now supports 4K video editing, first Android app to do so

It's an understatement to say 4K content and products are on fire at the moment, with every manufacturer hopping on the bandwagon and getting 4K products out the door, stat. CyberLink is the latest to do that, with its mobile video editing app, PowerDirector, gaining the ability to edit in 4K.
