Hero 7 Black 4K60 support and FoV options

[ Edited ]

Hi!


I am considering purchasing the Hero 7 Black for an upcoming trip.

4K60 *is* a requirement. I have read that this is only supported in wide (16:9) mode, which is OK...

I have looked several raw video samples and I am happy with the video quality - except for one thing - that huge distortion (aka 'fisheye')


I also read that somewhere along the settings, there is a 'Linear' mode with narrower FoV (hence - no distortion). But my question is: can I have 4K60 WITH a linear (narrow) FoV..? I am happy to sacrifise few degrees FoV in order to have distortion-free footage (video). But is it possible?


Thanks in advance

Well it is not going to happen even on the Hero 8  so yeah  their GP-2 is not the problem its the Team not listening again. 

 

wide

grande, amplo, largo, vasto, extenso, espaçoso
 
And super-view.
 
That is their trademark
 
We the People Want Linear 4K. its a in camera software that is already  on there, just enable Linear. and  zoom.

Re: Hero 7 Black 4K60 support and FoV options

Hmm, in the meantime I found this: https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/video-resolutions-for-hero7-cameras

 

According to that table, highest available (distortion-free) resolution where 60fps is supported, is 2.7K. That's the highest you ll get when chosing Linear mode. Also in 16:9 ratio.

 

Is that correct? Can someone confirm this?
