Image stabilization Hero 8 Black

[ New ]

If the image stabilization is active (on or boost), the image is attempted to be centered for too long in curves and then swiveled with a jerk. You can see in the video

from 2:38 (especially in the roundabout! Look left and right below)!
From 3:41 on there is a strange effect. The "object" (I behind the windshield) is static - nevertheless, the image section changes (as if someone were panning the camera - but this is not the case!)

This behavior is the same with firmware 1.6 (official firmware) and 1.7 ("LABS Firmware")! Other users are now complaining about this, which is why they are sending in their cameras because of a defect, because the Hero 7 does not have the behavior - look at

It also does not happen if the video is not stabilized and it is stabilized with ReelSteady!

I just had a support chat on the subject. After the usual tips (manual update, factory reset, recommended SD card, etc.) and repeated explanations of what it is, you realized that you can not help me in the chat and my feedback will be passed on to the developers. I'm curious how it will go on there.

Here's a link back to my thread explaining the problem with sample footage. The image "swivel" several seconds after making a turn is quite pronounced in this video taken from a bicycle. Even worse, it sometimes is just left pointing off to the left or right for a long time, after rounding a curve.

Could you describe what resolution, lens and degree of stabilization (OH, High, Boost) you are using?
