*Anyway, it installed quickly and the software version number on the phone has updated so seems to be okay.

Re: Hero 7 Black - Hypersmooth Panning Issue

Installed the update and done a quick check. Did a slow pan, faster pan, slow pan will deliberate shake, fast pan with deliberate shake and just a shake and record. Yay Gopro looks like it has been fixed. Footage is unbelievably stable while shaking, could not see any shake and the footage was super smooth. I saw only the smallest amount of stop/start when panning really slow but not enough to be concerned about. Well done Gopro for listening to your users and fixing this unacceptable issue. YAY. No doubt a more in-depth testing will be done by the many Gopro users but for now - I’m happy.

Just a question about the 1.61 firmware. Do you notice any extra cropping? I was wondering if they have cropped the picture even more for the stabiliser? Still waiting with 1.51 to see what the masses think.

There seem to be a little more cropping.
I updated one of my two 7 Blacks.
Will test some more and post screenshots.

Seems working fine with the last firmware. I've to test it on my FPV quad now.
