Re: Hero 7 Black Battery Issues

Having said that, I wonder what the DJI Action Camera will bring to the table when it is released in under a hours time. Could become a rather interesting marketplace...

Re: Hero 7 Black Battery Issues

I think Gopros generally are not the best tool for low light, mostly due to the small sensor size. Though having said that, there are some phones out there that do a fairly good job. It's not about pixel counting either, but how they are arranged on the sensor face. Some now are multi layered sensors. Don't ask how that works🤔😎

Re: Hero 7 Black Battery Issues

Hi grumpier.
Yes that will be very interesting. Feeling a bit vulnerable sitting on a less than perfect device. Forced to carry around a pocketful of batteries, all cos good old Gopro engineering can't or won't find a fix.

Yep. Just a word from engineering acknowledging that they are aware of the issue and that they are looking into it / have found a solution. Very sad that silence is the way they went :-(

and the engineers at gopro are probably falling over themselves, getting the 8's out the door, abandoning the 7's.
