Hypersmooth broken in FW 1.80

Ok, so i have had my Gopro 7 Black now for a year, it has been working fine, i have had the usual issues that the camera wont start sometimes, but i have just pulled the battery out, then it has been working again, i have seen alot of users having this issue here in the forums.

 

This weekend i did a big trip on my bike, and before i left i updated to the latest 1.80 firmware using the app, everything worked fine.

 

I recorded about 50gb using about 4 batteries, and when i got home and watched to footage, i see that alot of random clips on my sd card now is very shaky, it´s like the hypersmooth is not working on some of the clips, it can be fine on 10 clips, and then 2 clips can be broken, and so on.

 

Here is a example of a working clip

And here is the next clip on the sd card, where is issue is

So....what is going on?

 

Cant have a action camera that i cant trust, this is quite a dealbreaker to change camera (DJI have a nice one)

Hypersmooth, not working in the second clip. Not being rude, did you confirm it was indeed on? I used mine on a commercial job yesterday and it was just as usual......Hypersmooth.

Yes, camera whas not turned off or any change of settings between those two clips, it was about 1 minute between the clips where the camera was on, just used start/ stop recordning button.

 

And it´s the same issue that keeps coming randomly now after the 1.80 update with alot of recordning.

Re: Hypersmooth broken in FW 1.80

I hope you get it resolved. I will put mine through a test this week and see if I have the same issue. Last week I shot about 25 clips and they all came out fine. I must admit that they were short clips...perhaps the issue arises from heat build up in a longer duration clip?

It´s very strange, all my clips are about 1-2 min only, i guess i will try to downgrade the firmware, it was working somewhat ok with the 1.70, some random freezes but hypersmooth was working all the time

I just tested low light in our house and its surprisingly better with hyper smooth in low light. Its not perfect but a lot better in low light than previous.

I have the same problem... My "session 5" records well and the "7 black" looks like a washing machine.

Re: Hypersmooth broken in FW 1.80

Perhaps a full factory reset of the camera and re-installation of firmware?

 

I tried mine again and cant seem to fault the hypersmooth with 1.80
