Re: Hero 7 Black shaky footage in low light

I too am VERY disappointed with the shakey video I experienced during a VERY special trip this weekend. I brought two 64MB cards and four GoPro batteries, just in case. I even checked the playback on the GPH7 screen to make sure the exposure was "good enough" considering the low light environment. Now that I have returned home and transferred everything via Quik, I find all of my videos are unusable - the shaking is so bad. Panning is completely unrecognoizable. Frankly, I am BEYOND pissed!!! Had I known this, I would have vlogged with my Pixel phone. I thought "Hypersmooth" stbalization would save the day. Instead, my GPH7 ruined a very special "once in a lifetime" moment.
