Hero 7 Black LIVE view HDMI UHD 4K resolution

With my Hero 5 Black, I get UHD 4K out in Live view mode over the HDMI cable for my Atomos Ninja Flame recorder.

The Hero 6 capped out at 1080p.

 

I would like to upgrade to the Hero 7 Black, but want to make sure that it supports UHD 4K in Live view mode.

 

Anyone know?  Thanks!

Hello @davme .

 

Based on this article on HDMI Output, the HERO7 Black supports: 

  • Playback up to 4K from recorded media
  • Output of live preview at 1080p
  • Output while recording at 720p

Hope this helps. 

 

Best regards, 
Marius

Hi @fireydive67681

 

Kindly check the discussion on this thread regarding lower resolution when on live preview.

I hope this helps.

 

Thanks!

Marius, Thank you for the article link, however that article also includes the Hero5 in the same list.  Since the Hero5 outputs UHD 4K in live mode, their information is not accurate or they are deliberately glossing over the loss of a feature.  This makes me think that Hero7 has the same limit as Hero6.

 

Ej, That discussion is on the resolution of preview in the app.  I appreciate the effort to help, but this thread is specifically on trying to get full resolution live view over HDMI.

 

Does anyone have a 4K TV that reports the signal specs and a Hero7 Black? 

 

Connecting those devices together via HDMI and turning on live view should answer the question... I haven't bought the camera yet.

 

Thanks again everyone!

Apologies Ej.  I didn't click that your link was for fireydive.  Disregard my comment above.  :-)
