Re: hero 7 black hypersmooth + gimbal?

Hi,

maybe i still like most the Hipersmooth off with gimbal for documentary shoots, because it holds horisontal line, but for action probably without gimbal. For example if you want to shoot some event or some building, if you loose horisontal alighment it looks so ametour, but for action it is actualy good because let spectator get more into it.

I was using 1080 @30fps  and for editing I was using Adobe Premiere Pro

Cheers
