Defect in GoPro Hero 7 Black v1.51 2.7K 30FPS No Stabilization?

Anybody experiencing this?

I tested the new GoPro Hero 7 and found that in my favorite shooting mode, 2.7K 30 FPS, there is a video artifact of some sort that presents itself to me as a vertical red stripe in the center of the frame. I was able to reproduce this behavior in the default color and protune off mode also. It is difficult to see when using a flat profile, but once you start color grading, the stripe jumps out at you. To workaround this issue, either:

 

1. Turn on video stabilization

2. Switch resolution to Non-2.7K

3. Change frame rate to Non-30FPS

Hi @toughgorge40055,

 

Please check if you're on 4:3.

 

Make sure you are in 16;9 aspect ratio. 

 

 

Thanks,

Corroborated.

 

See the red laser beam hitting the bird?   ;-)

 

Upper half crop of 16:9 2.7k Superview, Unstabilized, Non ProTune frame. 

 

I am not seeing it in Wide or Linear modes.  

 

Should be an easy fix.

Goes top to bottom.   Stabilized does not have it, nor Wide/Linear from what I am seeing.   2.7K-30-non-Stabilized-SuperView.

I recorded today at this resolution but 60 fps + hypersmooth (fw 1.51) and I didnt notice this issue. Maybe its because of side rays of sun but shouldnt be. Look at my video I have the sun from side as well:

(its buffering in YT to higher resolution so need to wait a little bit.)

 

Do you have this issue at some other resolution if Yes -> I recommend to ask helpdesk because for me its looks like factory defect, if not...maybe sun, you should check in other weather conditions.

60 FPS avoids it.

 

Hypersmooth avoids it.

 

Wide or Linear avoids it.  

 

Switching away from 2.7K avoids it.  

 

Try unstabilized 30 FPS, 2.7k, Superview and you will see it.

Try a clear midday sky.   It's gone or much less apparent indoors in my experience.  Possibly color and/or brightness related.   When I have noticed it indoors, it shifts away from a red line to more greenish.   But you need certain lighting...try it out indoors some more if you have a moment, with the aforementioned in mind.   I'm sure it will be an easy fix.  And you can work around for now using the detail above.   Not sure if all or some cameras are affected but I know there are at least two.   ;-)
