There is a way to enable EIS on Nexus 5X just as it's enabled in Nexus 6P. It was posted originally on Reddit here.

1. Edit build.prop
2. Add this line: persist.camera.eis.enable=1
3. Reboot
4. Go to Camera settings --> Resolution & Quality
5. Check "Enable video stabilization"

And it actually works?! I definitely need to test this. Why wasn't this included by default? Google please.

I did some before and after comparisons and it does actually work! The shakiness is noticeably reduced when you enable EIS! To whoever found this, infinite kudos! Now, more importantly, could you do the same thing with 240fps slow-mo and burst mode?

I can't write to system partition... I assume it's something related to recovery.
I swiped the slider when it said to allow modification. Any help, plz?

I did the following:
Copy build.prop to SD and edit using es file Explorer.
Copy backup build.prop to different folder.
Boot recovery.
I mounted system read write in twrp.
Used twrp file browser to copy modified build.prop back to system.

Reboot resulted in bootloop.
Bootloop fixed by setting chmod 755 permissions to build.prop in twrp.

Succesfully implemented setting!

Does it hurt to give a bit of credit to the guy who came up with this first?
