Hy roberta1447.

i did the update to the new 1.90 firmware(from the latest one) and didn't notice nothing diferent.But i have still to do more tests,i've just recorded some small stuff.

With the previous firmware i only had a problem with the goPro,that sometimes on the middle of using it it diden't turn on,i had to pull the Battery off and then it would start to turn on normally again.I still have to see if that is resolved.

There is a little illuminating description on the release note of the new firmware...(as usualy isSmiley Sad) 1.90Bug fixes?

Unfortunately the update didn't fix the 2 issues I have. 

1. It freezes the video, but the audio stays on.

2/. It just turns itself off for no reson.

My GoPro 7 is a piece of junk.

My GoPro 6 was no better, they swapped it 5 TIMES and still wouldn't work properly so when the 7 came out they gave that as an upgrade.

The same bloody issues as the 6.

For point 1, I had this problem when running 4K or 2.7K with image stabilisation when temperature was below 0C and mounted to my bike. In a post I left, I was told to turn off stabilisation or use 1080P when below 0C and had zero video freeze since then. Sucks that a 4K cam cannot do 4K when it's cold (or hot) but... that's where we are...

Haven't used my Hero 7 Black since updating to firmware v1.90 but when I did the other day, froze on three seperate occasions requiring battery pulls. Was stable as all getout prior (never a freeze) so quite disappointed seeing this happening. So in my case their "General bug fixes" introduced a bug. Other than that haven't noticed anything else new.
