Just my thoughts.
12% cropping I wonder if that is the actual number cropped on the sensor and where the degrades is at the borderline. Or like dan said. The footage and iso or settings were used?

My phone has a 4k screen so it's possible to see the difference, and the files I download are full 4k quality, not the LRV files.
The image quality loss can be seen anywhere not just at the borders.
I have noticed this happening at ISO100, daylight, shutter speed auto (would have been very fast).
Basically I know how to use cameras and how to set up the camera so as to get the best out of the stabilisation. This issue is purely that when you use Hypersmooth the whole image loses quality, even in the best possible considitions for EIS.
Most people won't notice as most of the time it is such a small difference. However, at times things do appear more washed out. Such as tree leaves, flowers etc when Hypersmooth is on.

Also I should clarify that the reason a higher ISO is recommended when using Hypersmooth is to allow more light into the sensor so the EIS has more to analyse. Basically if you're using Hypersmooth in low light use a higher ISO.
This advice however, is not useful when using the camera during bright daylight conditions as even at ISO 100 there is maximum light allowed into the sensor.

Thank you. For the info explained. Going to have to see if it a show stopper or just to much info fi a small sensor. Get that info to the feedback so it can get documented in here we can only talk and share.

Yep, I agree. GoPro should be ashamed with the release of the 7. I have the GoPro 7 black and it is a joke. Terrible hypersmooth stabilisation in low light making everything unuseable. The GoPro 6 was so much better. GoPro sort your stuff out. We're not happy!
