Re: Is there any way to get access to all the shutter speeds in protune on a session 5?

@paulw284, we'll keep everyone posted as soon as we receive any update. You may also check the website (Software Update Release Information) from time to time for any further software release update.

Re: Is there any way to get access to all the shutter speeds in protune on a session 5?

What I meant was that I would love to hear what their response was on why the shutter speeds are restricted to the ones that are not useful.  Maybe there is something that I am missing

Re: Is there any way to get access to all the shutter speeds in protune on a session 5?

@paulw284, we do not have any further information as to why the video shutter speed is only limited to what's currently available in the camera -- I personally think that this is one of the camera's limitations.

Surely someone must know - it was definitely a concious decision to do that, someone @ gopro made that decision!  :)
