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.

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

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.
