Hero 8 Hyperstabalisation 2.0 none existent

Hello all. 

 

I am a kean runner who going out to some amazing locations and long distance runs. I decided to buy a GoPro 8 to record these travels and keep a log of them.  In addition I purchased the head mount and the chesty. I did some practice runs last night and with different setting and boost on however, the image still shaked more then I expected. I’ve watched load of video where it’s mounted on a chesty and/or when attached to a mountain bike frame and it’s smoooooth.

 

My question is. Do you have any recommended setting or is there a trick I’m missing as a GoPro novice? 

 

 Cheers

 

Edit: added links to clips as requested. Both filmed with 2.7K 60FPS linear and boost activated. It was also going dark so I put on low light mode. Any tips would help to improve the quality and stability. 

 

First one is with the chest mount.

That definitely looks a little shakier than what I’m expecting from the hypersmooth, but honestly, running is probably one of the more difficult things to keep smooth...especially when using a body-mounted camera and in low light. Then again, I’m used to shooting running using the karma grip and gimbal. Maybe try holding it in your hand on a short pole (even the small GoPro tripod?)
Here’s an example of my Hero 5 black with the Karma grip for comparison.

Thanks. That footage is so much better. I tried it with a pole and it's slightly better but not great. I've seen loads of test footage of people shaking the camera about with the hero 8 and boast and it looking smooth. 

Do you think it could be a bug or a faulty unit?

Hard to say. Mine is supposed to be delivered tomorrow so I’ll take it on my run and post up a vid to compare.

I generally use 1080p @60fps and wide or linear.

Unfortunately it will work this way and it is not a faulty unit.

Why do you think all the promotional footage is in perfect sun conditions and not in low light?
