I actually just found this documented...

“Heads up: Image stabilization uses a lot of power when you’re shooting in high performance modes. In cold temperatures (0°C or lower) the battery’s capacity is reduced and is not able to keep up with the high-power usage. Because of this, HyperSmooth and Standard Stabilization are not available in these high-performance modes when operating in very cold temperatures:
4K60
4K24 4:3
2.7K60 4:3
Your camera will let you know when it’s too cold to stabilize your footage.”

You should try it with an external battery pack connected. Would be interesting to see the results!

Sorry, late to the conversation on this one. I have been cold weather testing the Hero 7 black in cold temps in Minnesota. I am talking -15f to 30f.

I experienced the lack of Hypersmooth error as well. Up until about a month ago with the latest firmware updated, GoPro addressed this feature. Yup they call it a feature as they figure most users would rather have their gopro record without hypersmooth, than shut down with hypersmooth.

Not me, I'm a snowmobile videographer, and if I can't have hypersmooth, I don't want anything. So I updated the firmware, and she records with hypersmooth until the battery is dead. That being said, I have added other things to keep the camera warm. Or, I just start recording and let the camera generate it's own heat. Bumping it up to 2.7k/60fps usually helps.

Good luck all.

according to OP the error appeared at room temperature. This could be a faulty temperature reading. Would be interesting to know it this was repeatable or an one-timer.

Here is another solution for poor battery life. I just reviews this product from SmaTree. I carried it with me on our last snowmobile trip and it worked really well.

It should be a bit smaller, but still was a great product.
