Hero 7 Black video + photo

Just recently purchased the HERO7 and noticed that the video + photo option was removed. Why would you remove this feature? I primarily use my camera for skydiving and this feature was great for giving people great photos without the hassle of having to use an editing program to grab screenshots.

Hi @quicksand46346,

 

Yes, that feature is no longer available but we can suggest that to our team and we'll forward your message. 

 

You can screengrab using the app if you have 4k resolution it's just the same as taking a 12MP photo. 

 

Regards,

-Jay

Re: Hero 7 Black video + photo

It’s way easier to have the pictures already captured when you land so you can move them to a thumb drive for customers.

It's not going to happen until Ambrella's patent expires.
