first observations on the Hero 7 Black

been having a play comparing it to the Hero 6 Black today. Both charged overnight & both settings the same (except Hero 7 being Hypersmooth). The Hero 6 lasted 5 mnutes longer before turning off, it lasted for 70minutes while the Hero 7 lasted for 65minutes

 

only a quick video, but shows how the Hero 7 has better stability on turning/panning. Don't think its good enough to replace a gimbal tho

Re: first observations on the Hero 7 Black

Hi, I don't have the 6 anymore but can you compare the Hero 6 and hero 7 1080p on medium sharpness, liniar  and stabilization on and tell me what you think? It seems to me that the 6 retains more detail somehow, the hero 7 applies more noise reduction but only on 1080p.
