GOPRO HERO7 BLACK ENHANCEMENT/ ISSUE-FIX LIST

I am listing down all the issues and enhancements posted by the community here. Please do add on is there is anything I missed out.

Hope the GoPro team resolve all these issues asap, as well as work on the enhancements. I believe the Hero7 will be the ultimate action camera of all time, once all of these are addressed.

 

Issue List:

1. Panning issue with hyper-smooth stabilization on - jerky and not smooth panning.

2. Artifacts with hyper-smooth stabilization, especially in low light.

2. Battery drains very quickly even with everything turned off

3. Over-saturation of colours, expecially in low light settings - "flat" setting is recommended but direct output is too 'flat' for use without post processing.

4. Software bugs - relating to settings change e.g. have to toggle to and fro to activate hyper-smooth stabilization.

 

Enhancement List:

1. Save customized settings e.g. Custom 1, Custom 2 to ensure hassle free change of settings in between shots. Useful to have, for quick setting change between indoor and outdoor, and so on.

2. Additional options with stabilization options e.g. vertical stabilization only, standard stabilization, etc.

3. Options to select Go-pro recommended auto settings for low light/ night, sports, etc. as available in many compact cameras for both photo and video modes. This will be useful for less technical-savvy or entry level users who just want to use the camera as is.

I created this exact thread yesterday.

See "Hero7 firmware update - December".

Re: GOPRO HERO7 BLACK ENHANCEMENT/ ISSUE-FIX LIST

Thanks, I read that...nice!
I'm hoping they address the rest as well, which were not covered under your list, especially the battery fast drain issue.

Re: GOPRO HERO7 BLACK ENHANCEMENT/ ISSUE-FIX LIST

Good list some feedback from my end:

 

Issue List:

1. Panning issue with hyper-smooth stabilization on - jerky and not smooth panning. <- yes they need to fix that in the software.

2. Artifacts with hyper-smooth stabilization, especially in low light. <- hypersmooth just does not work in low light, this is not something they can fix due physical limitations of the sensor, i highly recommend using a gimball at low light/nightime with the GP7 Black

2. Battery drains very quickly even with everything turned off 

3. Over-saturation of colours, expecially in low light settings - "flat" setting is recommended but direct output is too 'flat' for use without post processing. <-do you have a few sample videos? i do a lot of testing myself, i did not have over saturated colors just plenty of noise.

4. Software bugs - relating to settings change e.g. have to toggle to and fro to activate hyper-smooth stabilization. <- yes still plenty of bugs for them to address in the menus and settings hehe.

 

I would like to add:

  • 24fps setting regardless what mode, what resolution etc does not feel like 24FPS to me, it looks choppy as if it is running at 20fps it does not has the cinematic feel to it, it misses the smoothness, for me personally its a useless FPS mode on my GP7 Black, i wish they could make it better to give that nice cinematic feel for vlogging.
  • Hyperlapse does not work on my GP7 Black under 2.7K resolution only 4k and 1080p not sure if that is a bug or something else.
  • Sometimes the screen goes black randomly.
  • Color saturation/ exposure is not always dynamically updating and get stuck in a over/under saturated value. Some of my videos have funky behaviour halfway througout the video.

Re: GOPRO HERO7 BLACK ENHANCEMENT/ ISSUE-FIX LIST

One issue I found is that 1080p quality takes a hit in detail because of the agressive noise reduction, compared to the Hero 6 which had excelent quality at 1080p. I brought this up on a comment on Abe Kislevitz's comprehensive guide of the Hero 7 Black on his website. He was very nice and did a comprehensive side by side check with the Hero 6 and found that I was right - noise reduction is applied to H7 to the point where small details are just turned completely smooth at 1080p. He said it will bring this up to the IQ team so there is a big chance this will get fixed in the next firmware update.

You were a bit faster than me with the noise issue. It's just too much noise reduction. An option to just turn it off would be nice. My Hero 4 is superior in low light situations.

An option to turn it off would be nice in some situations but then it means that I have to post process even more. Just dialing the noise reduction back at the Hero 6 levels would be perfect.
