Re: Hero 5 & 6 Black image stabilization comparison

it does make the Hero 5 Black feel like it was either unfinished, or they rushed it to get it launched early/on time

 

i like doing nightlapses, but for some reason continous shutter interval got dropped on the Hero 5 (& I didn't feel the need to cry about it). So think the Hero 5 is going into retirement & continue to use the Hero 4 & Hero 6 Blacks

Re: Hero 5 & 6 Black image stabilization comparison

Nice video. Do you know which recording options image stabilization works in? I know it works in 4k 30fps but not in 4k 60fps and 1080p 240fps. But does the image stabilization work in for example 1080p 120fps or 720p 120 fps?
