Re: Hypersmooth broken in FW 1.80

You can see it in this vid at 0.33 sec.

Then later it freezes, recording a single frame for rest of day, but still recording audio. Also a known issue.That happens a lot too.


People always saying they have no problems and are usually recording in 1080p I have found.


Now I manually updated to 1.80 and get this issue, just like many other people after updating to 1.80.

Re: Hypersmooth broken in FW 1.80

Why dont you just downgrade back to 1.70???? I wouldn't buy another camera when you can easily put the firmware back to its previous.



I can go back to 1.51, 1.61 and 1.70 whenever I like. Keep your previous firmwares spmewhere so you have the opporunity to downgrade anytime.
