Re: Hero6 Stabilisation (bouncing) issue

Thanks for the advice.

Re: Hero6 Stabilisation (bouncing) issue

@boldrange0427 the only luck I've had is with 2.7K @ 30 FPS. Wide is consistently good so far. Superview worked last time I was out, although it a couple of days ago didn't work.

Re: Hero6 Stabilisation (bouncing) issue

Re: Hero6 Stabilisation (bouncing) issue

Guys try to use Linear lens mode. Seems like that avoids some of the issues but introduce a new one, but not so annyoing as the original issue.

Re: Hero6 Stabilisation (bouncing) issue

I used Linear 2.7K 30FPS on my last ride. It was the worst quality I've seen on my chestcam. It looked like it kept going in/out of focus on the rider in front of me, and although auto-stabilization was on, it was supershaky. Googledrive link to a video from there:

Had two hours of that crap. (And it doesn't rain, it's the occasional drop of sweat from my forehead that drizzles down.)

Re: Hero6 Stabilisation (bouncing) issue

That shakiness happened with my defective cam. Firmware 1.51 and low light as well. I exchanged it for a new one and did not update the firmware. So far so good. Bluish light rays still there.

Re: Hero6 Stabilisation (bouncing) issue

Yes, They all have this issue. Its an obvious bug or limitation with the stabilisation. Hope they can fix it as it makes the stabelisation no more than a gimmick, like most software stabilisation solutions. Oh well back to the gimbal.

Re: Hero6 Stabilisation (bouncing) issue

Does anybody got experience with Hero5 stabilisation? How does it compare?
