Hero 7: HyperSmooth: Running - My footage looks like standard stabilisation in 4K-60.

Hi all,

 

I used my H7 today to check out how it performed during a run. I had it on a short handle and set it at 4K-60. The footage I reviewed after the run was somewhat disappointing after looking at other people's running footage. Is it possible that the HyperSmooth is not working correctly on 4K-60? I have done some of the HyperLapse too, and that seems rock solid.

 

I saw another runner's footage, handheld, and that is very smooth. Mine looks like standard stabilisation. 

 

This is my running footage: https://youtu.be/iHOPTdlb4Tw

 

This the HyperLapse: https://youtu.be/jNwPfjv2cHI

Any thought?

 

Thank you,

Karl

Footage to check the new Gimbal-like video. Been running with the camera in my hand, no gimbal, not even a stick or anything. Video is straight from the came...

Hello @karlb01334

 

Thank you for sharing your videos. Could the difference be brought about by how the camera was handled on a stick for you and handheld by the other runner)? Have you been able to try other resolution settings offering Hypersmooth stabilization? 

 

Thanks, 
Marius

Hi Marius,

 

I felt I was holding the stick pretty firmly during my 14-mile run and was keeping close attention to whether it was moving much. I didn't think it was. I may try it without the stick and see what happens. I will also try other resolutions later this week.

 

I only updated firmware on Friday, but I'm sure that isn't the problem.

 

I'm guessing resetting won't really make any difference, will it?

 

I'll let you know how I get on.

 

Regards,

Karl

I have noticed some vibration in my hero 7 black with hyper smooth ON as well while running. it feels like the video or the lens vibrates all while running.

 

here are some examples with diferrent resolutions

 

4K / 60

2.7K / 60

1080 / 60

I have noticed the same while walking as well and have also posted an exmple for this.

@ahmedikareem

 

The vibration you are seeing is a limitiation with EIS in low light.

 

Please keep in mind how EIS works. It needs a lot of information in the original picture to be able to stabilise well. With low light you are limiting the information that it can use to stabilise your picture so everytime there is a movement and it attempts to stabilise instead yu get these vibrations.

 

You can improve the EIS performance in low light by increasing the shutter speed and raising the ISO however this will add noise to your shot.

 

I'd recommend only using hypersmooth in good light in the future.

@quickhero77554 Thank bro for the explanation, make sense.

 

I thought there was something wrong with my camera. I will try in day-light and will post my results.

how is this even possible? what is your Firmware version? mine is 1.51 tried wireless update and manual update also. but even walking my footage is somehow moving and i can feel every step on the video. the video from a trail runner is so smooth.
