Re: Hero 8 Facebook live video defaults to fisheye

[ New ]

Would like to add my own disappointment over this issue. Smiley Sad

 

Purchased Hero 8 for a lot of money, changed my settings to Linear, framed up what I'm recording - looks great - press the button to go live, and BAM! it just resets the angle to Wide. 

 

Totally ruins the stream with ridiculous giant distorted wide angle effect. You're left thinking that you messed something up or missed something. This has to be a bug. These are basic features that make a product fit for the purposes that it's marketed for.

 

Thank you aragon1006 for reaching out to the developers. This is problem requiring a quick fix! And it's probably an easy fix. 

 

Please ping the team again for an ETA on a fix, as this is quite frustrating. They can do better than this, I know it.

Another person to add to this - love the camera, works great... but fisheye in livestream mode is deal-breaker.  I'm looking into alternatives now to replace this. I hope this thread gets some feedback about GoPro's plans to resolve this issue. :(

 Person who is in charge of it should be  told again to add it in and tehy will do it, some one is stopping them from giving what we want, and why?

Anyone know if this also happens when streaming to Youtube? 

 

And is this flaw present in earlier models, or just the Hero 8?

 

Come on Devs, get this fixed! Robot surprised
