Some may not realize it, but the OEM gimbal (Karma) turns the camera's internal stabilization off. It's also very quiet, no motor noise issues of any note. Some or all aftermarket gimbal fans can use the camera's internal EIS in addition if desired. But for the 7 I think you'd want to turn it off and on manually for slow panning. Same with the 6 as that has some jitters /stutters in slow panning movements.Thanx Ifti, I was hopeful but I couldn't really imagine to work without a gimbal.
So I guess best solution for stabil footage is using a gimbal and turn stabilization completely off.
I hope audio quality with gimbal is better than 6.
Mine looks the same, although as you state the seal covers the ports regardlessGreat Job Ifti. Please take a close look at the port door your pin is showing while I am looking at my H5 its solidly closed?
Understanding the seal is covering the area. and I think gopro made it easier for it to open that was what I felt right away the port door very easy to slide while the battery door hard for me..
I think down the road will tell....
