Re: 720P live output on HDMI on Hero 6

Hi, actually go through to the GoPro support today and got a clear answer that the GoPro6 HDMI output is locked to 1080p, and will probably be that way for a long time since it was some kind of limitation... So my GoPro6:s is going out for sale now..

Re: 720P live output on HDMI on Hero 6

Very disappointing... I guess we'll have to stock up on 5's.

 

GoPro needs to do better than this!
