Re: GoPro Hero 8 about to release?

@Newold86: are there any new testings with horizon stabilization and hero8? Thanks Yes, I have done a bit of shooting while kiting. Unfortunately, not so happy anymore... The horizon leveling works quite well, no real complaints. But the quality deterioration seems not just due of a cropping (and l...

Re: GoPro Hero 8 about to release?

@Newold 86: Could you provide us with some more tests or even better upload (maybe on www.file-upload.net) some rotated original clips so that we can test on our devices if it works properly? Would be very useful before buying the cam. Thanks Sorry - currently traveling and don’t have the camera wi...

yeah...

the auto leveling is impressive..

but that resolution limit (lack of 4-5k) may end up being the dealbreaker on the gopro max for me.
(will...PROBABLY end up returning it)
It’s Hero 8 Black, not Max

Re: GoPro Hero 8 about to release?

Man, that is excellent!! :D did you do that in the GoPro App? On phone or computer? I was impressed as well. Hope to get the same on real footage. Unfortunately the forecast isn’t showing any wind for whole week :( Hopefully someone else can make a video sooner... I used the standard Gopro app on i...

Re: GoPro Hero 8 about to release?

It won't be able to do it properly for full rotations. At least not in 1080p. Maybe in 720. But for 1080 it would need an 5.7k capable sensor , and GoPro did not upgrade the internals on the Go Pro 8. It still has the same hardware as the 7. -- Gunnar Just tried in-app horizon leveling with version...

Re: GoPro Hero 8 about to release?

No. The GoPro 8 does not have horizon levelling. -- Gunnar Yeah, I read that. But it does have leveling in the editing software - post shooting. Wondering if this works well and is user friendly? It won't be able to do it properly for full rotations. At least not in 1080p. Maybe in 720. But for 108...

Re: Naish Pivot vs Core XR or GTS

Own 4 (four) Core bars (2 and Pro) for a bit more than 3 years. Two items failed on all of them - elastics to keep lines stowed and velcro to keep depower loop in place. Of course, those things don’t affect a riding at all, but I don’t understand why Core can’t pay $0.01 more and get better elastics...

Re: Gath Helmets with Visor

Used RV for almost two years, then moved to Gedi with full face visor a year ago. First of all, RV shape is not for my head. Gedi isn’t perfect either, but better adjustable (has special inserts). Also RV’s visor easily scratched during closing/opening by design (impossible to remove a sand from ins...
