Re: New firmware in the wild folks v2.51

Gopro Team, im sure most people does not care of FW updates (I just press a button, then press it again). But there is a kind of ppl who can give u a feedback if u give us detailed changelog (we did exactly this, exactly that)...just let us know what u exactly repair or modify...know its hard cuz of closedsource, but, get thru it, its good for both sides, us, users, and you, company trying to sell a product, thx

 

general bug fixes sounds like...we spend several months of chillin...thanx

Re: New firmware in the wild folks v2.51

Hero 5 Session owner here.

 

So with the new firmware there's still no option to set shutters peed manually. Something that was available on the first firmware and what I found very usefull in some situations. Sttill no option to set power saving - sometimes my camera shuts down even before my phone can connect to it, so I have to press menu button again, wait for it to turn on, to enable wifi, and hope for the phone to connect before it shuts down again. Or go to photo mode on the camera. Which is ridiculous. Image and video quality look exactly the same for me (tested it in exactly same enviroment, closed office space with only artificial lightning). Not sure about the battery life at this stage, as I just installed the new update and couldn't test it in the field. But as others said - "bug fixes" sounds like "we've changed the number on the firmware version, so it looks like we did something to deserve bonus pay and you all can feck off".

The shutter speed option is there on my session via the capture app, always has been. I can't see any other changes though. I have the same wifi issue as you.

Re: New firmware in the wild folks v2.51

It is funny how both hero 5 Blac and session came out so I see no  additons  or improvements but maybe a  bug fi nothing more.
