Hero 9 - 2.7K 24/25fps?

[ New ]

Hello,

 

I have tried to set the Hero 9 to 2.7K 24fps but unfortunatley it will only do 50 or 100fps. I have tried with a few different lens options but each time I can only select 50 or 100fps. No option for 24 or 25fps as these a greyed out.

 

Is this just me or does anyone else have this problem?

 

Are there any plans in a future firmware update to include 24/25fps for 2.7K?

 

Regards

 

Rodney

Yeah I have the exact same problem, total nightmare, i have no idea why they would get rid of these frame rates. But upon reading through the manual it appears they've ditched them. It sucks because 4k footage kills my computer but if I want to use 24fps which i normally do, then I'm forced into 4k. Seriously makes no sense I'll be using my hero 8 until this gets updated!

Turning Max Lens on will give you Max Video mode which will get you closer with 30 fps at 2.7k. Not the same I know. GoPro advertised this camera as "more of everything". Test results determined that is a lie.

My Mavic Mini does 2.7k at 24fps so naturally I would like to have the same settings in the Hero 9. Matching the quality, especially the frame rates would make life much easier. 

The Hero 9 is my first Gopro camera so I am not sure what recording options were available with the 7 and 8.

 

I did see something when glancing over the internet that Gopro's 2.7k at 24fps is really soft looking. Perhaps the quality is not there.

 

Who knows?

Hi Kris,

 

Do we need the Max Lens before we can choose that mode?

I believe you just have to select Max Lens mode and it will work. You just won’t be able to select any wide or superview angles.

Agree. I don't want to record 4K/25 because of big amount of data. 2,7K/25 was enough for me. GoPro, please, add 2,7K 24/25 fps mode to GoPro 9.

IF you select Max Mod lens mode you will indeed get the frame rates you want, but your image will be distorted.  The Max Mod Lens mode needs to crop out some area's of the footage while adding a distortion filter to accomdate for the curvature of the ultrawide lens.
