Hero 7 Black jerk in video always 5 seconds after start recording

[ Edited ]

Shot 23 clips in 4K with Hypersmooth turned on and 16:9 aspect ratio, 24 fps and auto shutter speed. In every clip the recording did a jerk at the 5-second mark. Is there a record of the Hero 7 Black doing this? Is there a fix?

 

I have not shot since installing the December 2018 firmware upgrade. Was this fixed in firmware?

 

Thanks.

You'll need to try it and let us know.

Re: Hero 7 Black jerk in video always 5 seconds after start recording

you got video of that Jerk, now the next step is yours,  Id onlt shoot 4K and I don't know if the older had one. can be a card issue can be a camera issue can be  anything. like a Pet rock   Many complain aboutthings, this is a first in here for me?

 

 like to know if H7B at 5 secs on my cam and o thers have it, is a million to one chance.  good luck ifothers come in and note  they have it or not?

All we can do is  talk and gopro can dirct you to the rep or say its best to be fully update, or manually reflash the firmware and  FW 1.51 in n/a  on here

Re: Hero 7 Black jerk in video always 5 seconds after start recording

I haven't seen it on my son's or my Hero7 Black.

But, each pet rock is unique and special. I'm going to get some googly eyes and glue some yarn on mine for hair.

For ten high fives (80) i do that test for you  4k never did we hear the exact settings if protune was on sayingauto shutter?  so what was the other protune settings? or you ment to say no protunes, right @danielr15 that is important as well  the scene and what  we're doing (smiles)

I've got a copy on VHS but not DVD. Steve Martin at his best, IMO. Have you found your "Special Purpose"? Just remember, "He hates those cans, stay away from those cans!"

All month on Cable I watched it twice.  Lol.    I guess my high fives just went your way!
