7 Black - Audio sync issue only when stabilzoation on.

I have tested a number of different frame rates and resolutions. I have a significant audio sync issue whenever stabilization is enabled while using the external mic adapter. It is upwards of a full second off. When stabilization is disabled everything works fine. This issue presents itself both on playback within the GoPro 7 Black itself and through the app on a Pixel 2 XP. Everything was updated to the current software available toe as of 7pm eastern time before iade this post.

Re: 7 Black - Audio sync issue only when stabilzoation on.

Yes I noticed the audio sync issue with an external mic, although I didn't know it was related to stabilization, so I was able to get around this terrible sync issue by plugging in external mic into the Pro 3.5mm Mic Adapter (which remains plugged into the GoPro Hero 7 Black all the time) AFTER I start recording, which is not ideal.

Let me know if that workaround solves this for you?

Re: 7 Black - Audio sync issue only when stabilzoation on.

That's not an acceptable "fix". I'm getting more and more frustrated with the fact that my Gopro3 Silver was more reliable and required less garbage hanging off of it to do something simple like run an external mic.

Re: 7 Black - Audio sync issue only when stabilzoation on.

Is this in Hypersmooth or EIS standard,  I suggest doing three tests  and report back exactly which one. please
