There are great enhancment suggestions in a thread named 'GoPro Hero 7 Black Stabilization with Slow Turns', that should be a straightforeward firmware modification to implement. Here is the one from Danielr15 that is the most succinct:
'I hope a future update addresses this and gives us more options. I'd like three (well, four if you include off) stabilization modes:
2) Standard (HERO6 stabilization)
3) 2-Axis (vertical stabilization only).
Here is my description of the issue:
'The options to select either HyperSmooth or Standard stabilization would help me immensely. I use my GoPro for dive videos where I need the low light setting. I normally shoot in 1080 60, but right now 'Auto' mandates that I am in HyperSmooth. My brief exposure with the Hero 7 in HyperSmooth is causing me to kick myself for selling my Hero 6! I find that the things I do underwater like slow pans don't look that great in HyperSmooth (there is a blur effect even with very slow pans). And I really don't need HyperSmooth underwater. So I tried 1080 120 and get Standard Stabilization, but NO LOW LIGHT! Not good! The panning looked better, but I really need the low light setting underwater with my Backscatter filters. I hope The Hero 7 folks monitor these forums for good enhancment suggestions, because I think this would be a winner!'
I had been hoping to see a response from someone from GoPro, but haven't s far. Please let us know what you think.
