not a major problem, but it is slower to process the video once you've stopped recording than the Hero 6

I should have my Hero 7 by tomorrow if luck prevails.

So I cannot try this out yet.

Try turning HyperSmooth™ off to see if that helps the post clip processing delay time.

If so, then it may be a buffer clearing time, hence gotta live with it.

yeh its not really a problem, but thought it was worth noting

Overheating. After 45 mins 4K60 16:9 the camera will shut down.
Also in 2.7K 4:3.
Body had 65 Celsius and battery around 60C with my infrared thermometer. Ambient 25C.

Also very laggy interface after you record anything over few seconds, when is empty runs smoothly.

Few freezes here and there need to remove battery and insert again.

Lots more 6 vs 7 testing for Image Quality. 7 keeps prevailing in 3-4 areas and in more conditions. Sure am loving it.


Make sure the problems noted are truly deal breakers for you without work around or cure soon to come.

1 Attachment(s)
2.7k, 16:9, 30FPS unstablized, non-Protune upper half frame grab.

Vertical Red laser beam hitting the bird.

S/B an easy fix for them.

I don't see it in Wide or Linear options.

Corroborated by others.

My initial complaint is I am not a fan of the interface - the Hero 5 and 6 Black interface was good. I don't see why they decided to change it. It's a common thing in the electronic and computer business..make a usable GUI a mess.

Well like any product out there will change, keeps you on your toes. If the Hero 6 gets a update well I may keep my FW 1.57 i have been on day one WORKS. I like interface to a certain degree if asked.

Maybe down the road I'll get another one and get used to it again. they changed the connectivity to the newer interface which I hate. one press on worked. not three press on Lol. press, swipte, press.

Superphoto on Hero 7 Black

Hi all, I’m new here.....

I took the jump from upgrading from my much loved Hero 4 Silver to the Hero 7 Black.

It looks and feels great and am playing with various functions....I am having some issues with the Superphoto (I use my H7B for photos as well as video).

I know it is a layering type process but I am getting lots of ghosting on the final image. Part of the image is sharp and focussed but then areas of it look as if there had been lots of camera movement where there hasn’t been.

Anyone else experiencing this issue? I have updated the version software - pretty much out the box. I have formatted SD card and am using one that has worked before and does everything else brilliantly.

Any help would be good or just say hi to a newbie!
