Re: Hero 6Black Stabilization Issue bouncing frame

[ Edited ]

Keep in mind that I'm walking with GoPro Karma Grip and internal software GoPro 5 stabilization. The internal software stabilization causes the issue, which is a notorious problem in low light conditions. 

 

The following footage shows even shakyness while standing still. Obviously, the more motion there is the more complex the frames will become for the internal stabilization software to stitch it all toghether.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAdNlPcVFQY

 

As said, this has nothing to do with the walking motion ' up and down'.  It has everything to do which the option of STABILIZATION MODE [ON] @ GoPro Hero 5 Black causing terrible shakiness and bounciness.

 

I've walked the exact path as seen in the video twice. One with stabilization = ON and one with stabilization = OFF. 

It does not cause the same shakyness with stabilization OFF. Therefore I was able to narrow the cause of the problem to this specific function. 

 

 

Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

So you solved your issue? Don't use EIS is the Karma Grip.

Re: Hero 6Black Stabilization Issue bouncing frame

Also, it's this a HERO5 or HERO6 that we are talking about?
