4K Linear mode for Hero 7 Black

Why doesn’t the Hero 7 Black have more options for video modes in 4K instead of just Wide.
It really needs Linear at the very least.
Isn’t just a simple firmware or software update ?
Let’s have it in the next update please ?

We cannot say for certain at this time, @martinjws. But the feedback/query has been submitted to the team. We will definitely  post about it if it becomes available. Best regards!

Re: 4K Linear mode for Hero 7 Black

Thank you for the feedback, @martinjws. At this time, the highest resolution with Linear field of view (FOV) is 2.7 K as seen in this list. We will pass your feedback along to the team. Best regards!

Re: 4K Linear mode for Hero 7 Black

I know what it can currently do as I have one.
I wanted to know if it would be possible to have that feature in an update ?

Re: 4K Linear mode for Hero 7 Black

Yup, DJI Osmo Action has a similar feature called 'Dewarp Mode' which is available in 4K 60FPS. Really useful to capture cinematic video when editing on an app like Lumafusion.

 

Really hope that GoPro will release this feature in the future update or else, I will trade my GoPro with DJI Osmo Action soon.

Re: 4K Linear mode for Hero 7 Black

Hero 8 if doesnot have more people will go to DJI. GoPro wil lnot add Linear to a 4K Res they will up it to 5.2K  then add it to 4K. Only  thing they can do to up one.  IMHO!

Re: 4K Linear mode for Hero 7 Black

Yea, you might be right. I would do the same thing if I were them. There's no need to buy GoPro Hero 8 if we can shoot 4K 60FPS (in linear mode) if it's available on GPH7. This camera is super durable. No reason to switch for the new one if you don't really need that feature. I on the other hand kinda need it as Lumafusion doesn't have the feature to do lens correction.
