Re: Hero 6 is dropping frames! HUGE issue!

The GoPro 6 is a dud.

 

GOPRO will have to do a recall once they have ironed out the issues, like they did with the GoPro drone when it started falling out of the sky for no apparent reason. 

 

This is really bad way of doing buisiness.

"Just got done doing some extensive filming for a client. Going through the footage I see no dropped frames. "

That's encouraging.  Were you shooting at 24fps with stabilization on?  Or was it different frame rate?

24 with stabilization. Shooting some horses on the beach at sunset.

Hero6 is far from being recalled. Karma is a fantastic filming drone and was only recalled because a few had batteries that were dislodging.

Compared to Hero4 and Hero5, the Hero6 has far less complaints and issues in the same time period from launch.

Sorry if you're having issues, but mine is performing great.

I agree, why does it need to be recalled exactly? cause you're having trouble with yours? For most of us it's an exceptional camera.

It's not just me who is having problems mate. 

 

It's 100's of people if not 1000's.

You know a support forum is for asking questions and hoping the community has an answer. All you've done is come on saying "gopro your camera is awful, blah blah blah". It's pointless, if you don't like it send it back. If you have problems with it ask and maybe someone will give you an answer. My hero6 hasn't been perfect but it's still better than any other action camera I've tried.

"24 with stabilization. Shooting some horses on the beach at sunset."

 

I just did my own test with the new firmware and I can confirm that issue is STILL there.  The camera will still drop frames randomly when shooing in 4k 24fps superview with stabilization on.
