Re: Why is my GoPro 7 stutter As I pan

I love GoPro before but I have notice that now with the 7 black that I bought it’s a step back my 3+black have taken great images but I shot a wedding using 7 as a cut away and could not use any of footage so I return it to go pro they refunded the full amount hope they get this problem fix otherwise Sony is going to be my choice.
