GoPro NARROW modes NEEDED

[ Edited ]

Guys, 

a year ago or more I asked, along with lots of other underwater videographers, to reestablish the narrow field of view that exists up to gopro 5 in gopro 6/7
The ZOOM BY TOUCH IS NOT AVAILABLE UNDERWATER, and this would be easily done with buttons programming...
Either get the NARROW back again or at  least assign a 10% 20% ...90% 100% zoom to the buttons in GoPro 6/7
That way we can use gopro for shooting underwater macro... and other needed stuff.
Otherwise, I am selling this.

I suggest   passing it on yourself    that gets recorded by their Team

Fernandot3607,

 

Not sure which version of the hero you have but if it's a Hero 6 then I think it would be extremely unlikely that Gopro would add any new/updated features to that now as it has been superseeded by the Hero 7

I have 4, 5, 6 and 7, all black.
Thing is... it IS needed.
And those stupid engineers from GoPro forgot about it. Sliding on the screen does not work underwater let alone inside a housing!!!

I do not think the  adds we all want will ever get taken care of.  GoPro is more into Sales then  cameras Lol    Luv to see it. but never will happen?

Re: GoPro NARROW modes NEEDED

As with virtually every other company under the sun Gopro don't spend money on developing obsolete hardware.

It is quite common that once a product is no longer being manufactured any firmware development is curtailed.

Hero 4, 5, 6 are all obsolete - as there would be no further sales of these by gopro why would they I vest money in developing a camera that hasn't been sold for years?

If the 8 is coming out soon then the 7 will soon be obsolete. They may release one or two further bugfix firmware releases but probably no major development.
