Gopro 7 silver and 1080

Dear support team, 

Is there any chance that gp7silver will be able to film with a full hd 1080/30/60?

As for now only 1440/30/60 is possible, and that is really annoying.

If there are no any updates, then I have to send it back to you :(

Re: Gopro 7 silver and 1080

 

Hi @nicewave8078

 

Both HERO7 Silver and White are designed to make life, and capturing it, easier and better looking than ever, which is why these GoPros default to 1440p resolution video—this resolution captures the full width and height of the sensor to fully capture the activity you’re immersed in without worrying about mounting options or positions.

 

But we have been hearing some desire for options, specifically for those looking to shoot in 1080p. In December, we’ll be launching a firmware update that allows the default video resolution to be either 1440p or 1080p on both HERO7 Silver and White. Until then, the GoPro and Quik apps allow users to create 1080p content from native 1440 captures.

 

Thanks!

Ej

Re: Gopro 7 silver and 1080

Hello @nicewave8078


A new firmware has just been released for the HERO7 Silver and HERO7 White. This allows the option for a resolution of 1080p, in addition to 1440p. 


To access the option, set the default to 1080p (Preferences > Defaults > Resolution >1080) then turn off 4K on the Video Mode screen. 


Make sure you update your camera to this new firmware. There are instructions here to guide you through the process. 


Let us know if you are able to get to such setting after the update. 


Thanks, 
Marius
