gopro 5 black no stabilization 1080 30fps

hi all,
at 1080 25/30fps stabilization does not work.
at 1080 50/60fps stabilization works just fine.

1.57 is the firmware.

and yes, the auto low light is off.

can you check, comment please?

thank you,

on the video itself.
I can set it, the stabilization icon is on screen on the right.
I tried it with and without PT. Same result.

Re: gopro 5 black no stabilization 1080 30fps

hi all,

here are my findings:

 

usually, I ride at 60fps.

this evening I told myself to try a new setup with 30fps.

at home, I had the surprise that the footage was not stabilized.

 

I ran some tests, and here is the result:

GoPro hero 5 black, FW 1.57 (latest) I usually shoot at 50/60fps. today I tried 30fps, and .... stabilization seems not to work at 1080p @30fps auto low light is off. stabilization icon is lit up, not gray. works fine @48fps and @60fps.... mounted on helmet. at 30fps, regardless PT (iso) on or ...

Re: gopro 5 black no stabilization 1080 30fps

ok....

 

I've just finished more test.

 

the correct statement is:

 

at 30fps, regardless PT (iso) on or off, in certain low light condition, stabilization stops working, without an indication on the screen.

 

although the Auto Low Light cannot be activated at 30fps, seems that somehow is "by default".

 

thank you,

robert

Re: gopro 5 black no stabilization 1080 30fps

hi all,

repeated the test.

 

EIS at 1080@30fps works till light diminishes.

when light is enough, EIS restarts working.

 

at @60fps,  EIS works no matter how low is the light.

 

in this test PT is off.

tried with PT on, same result.

1080 @30fps when light dim, EIS stop working. does not matter PT is active or not. thank you,
