Hero 7 Black video has stutter. Shutter issue?

Just bought a Hero 7 Black, and I've noticed that when panning, objects in the foreground will have a terrible stutter to them. Tried several frame rates and shutter speeds but didn't find a solution. I've tried three monitors on two different computers, and several video players, so it seems to be a camera issue. Here's an example, the tree in the foreground is most noticable for me: https://youtu.be/werQL73GiRo

That was shot at 2.7k/24fps with shutter on auto. 

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

Re: Hero 7 Black video has stutter. Shutter issue?

Sure.

 

Too low a frame rate for the pan combined with a fast shutter speed due to the bright lighting.

 

Using a higher frame rate would help. 

 

So would reducing the light via filtration.  

 

See 180º shutter.  

 

Next time u watch a movie, notice they control their pans, but detail drops during them.   And that is with a 180º shutter.
