Low light seems much impoved. The image stablization seemed worse though. I'll have to give it a thorough test tomorrow in daylight.

Re: HERO6 Black Update! v02.01

well all I can say at this point from testing it in my basement with artificial low light is that the grainy noise has been significantly reduced, but yeah it almost seems like the image stablization is not working or something. Then again i've only minimally tested it, could be something to do with the low light.

Re: HERO6 Black Update! v02.01

I really hope they haven't ruined the stabilisation during the day.

From the reactions it seems that the stabilisation has been reduced which would be a massive bummer when it's one of the highlight features of this camera.

The stabilisation needs to perform as it did during the day but automatically reduce in low light (to stop the jello effect).

Can anyone confirm how it perform in bright daylight with the newest update?

Thank you.

 

To you "backpackers" out there who thought that the Hero6 was perfect in low light and had no blue fringing after the 1.60 firmware update: Shame on you.
