Re: Gopro6 stabilization not work on sd card 64 GB

@mariustanya Hi, I am not sure I would class the camera as working normally when you have to format the card the reboot the device to get a function to operate as intended?

Re: Gopro6 stabilization not work on sd card 64 GB

Hello @epicallyepic

 

I agree with you on that. It should not be the case. Gathering that you have already performed a manual update, and that you are already using a recommended SD card, a simple navigation through the camera to the desired feature should be enough. I have a question. Has the camera consistently worked with the stabilization after every time that you go through the 5-step process that you shared?

 

Thanks, 
Marius

Re: Gopro6 stabilization not work on sd card 64 GB

I'm not so sure there was anything wrong in the first place. Just to clarify, the stabilization in the Hero6 is reduced/turned off automatically when recording in low light/dark to prevent the jumping in the video that can occur with EIS. The testing environment in the provided video was not ideal to test this. Outside in daylight would have been a better place to test this. I guess it's have to understand the engineering of how the camera works, but I don't see how formatting the SD card plays into the functioning of the EIS. I think there might have just been a placebo effect when in reality, the lighting may have changed, or settings corrected, in the successful recording.

Re: Gopro6 stabilization not work on sd card 64 GB

Dear @mariustanya  @danielr15

 

Sorry I,m stupid.
I try again as suggested.
If the light is low, the stabilization is disabled.
If the light is sufficient. The stabilization will return to work the same.
I found the answer.

 

Thank,
