GoPro 7 Black with HyperSmooth - Game Changer for mtb?!?

Hey guys,

Got the new GoPro 7 Black!!
In my opinion its a bit better than the 6, but only because of the firmware and i think it also makes a bit more crop on the image.

Colors seams better yes, but again, because of firmware as it uses the same processor and sensor as the 6.

whats your opinion? way better or just a bit better??

i agree from what i've used of it that the stabilization isn't that much better than the Hero 6 really, although i don't use it for anything like they advertise so not pushed it yet. I disagree that it crops more, i've compared viewing angles from both & you can still see the same amount

I am happy with the Hero 6 EIS which works very well - Hyperlapse was really what attracted me to the Hero 7 Black because would be nice to be able to do those without a lot of editing.

Let GoPro know directly or at their support page you'd like ProTune for the Hyperlapse / Timewarp mode. Presently you just get the clips pre-cooked in-camera, which makes grading to match the other footage a bit more involved. It can be done technically, just hoping it can get onto their todo list as we move forward.

Yeah it would be nice to have Hyperlapse WITH Protune, a little bit of a joke that it isn't implemented.

**Tongue In Cheek ** Probably will be implemented in the Hero 8 Black


All kidding aside, my guess the GP1 might not be able to handle it or they are piecemealing features to get folks to buy the new cameras next year. Why release all the goodies in the Hero 7 when you can give some now and put some in the Hero 8?

Nah it is coming, even GoPro creatives such as Abe are lobbying for it. Since it was a completely new (and wonderful) mode, they were happy just to get it done in the first place. You can still grade afterwards, and more importantly shoot as best you can during capture. Ongoing, you'd want ProTune Flat with other non-stock settings like your other clips.

I figure later this year, or 1Q 2019 for TimeWarp Pro.

I hope they will solve the problem with an update otherwise we have to correct it in the post - I guess this is possible.

Ok so after a little play with the Hero 7....

HyperSmooth - I found that it didn't differ too much from the Hero 6 while walking etc. However, mounted to my chest while biking I found the video to be very smooth. More so than the Hero 6. Quite impressive for digital stabilisation. I would like a way of switching stabilisation off altogether though - can this be done?
If someone was thinking of moving from the Hero 6 to the 7, then Hypersmooth alone is not a reason to do so.

TimeWarp on the other hand. Wow. Really impressed. Creates some really nice smooth footage when moving with no effort from the user at all. Can see this being used a lot more in future.

Should you upgrade from a Hero 6 to a Hero 7?
Well yes and no. If TimeWarp is important to you, then yes. But when it comes to video resolutions, video quality, and video stabilisation, then no.

Sure you can switch it off. Just tap the video mode button, center/bottom of screen. Then hit stabilization, which would typically be set to "auto". Select "off". You' also want ISO min 100 max 400 for outdoor / daytime with Hypersmooth...compared to ISO min 100 max 100 with stabilization off or Hero 6 type stabilization. Hypersmooth likes a fast shutter speed if needed, so by all means bear ISO max in mind.
