The distortion you are seeing has nothing to do with ProTune or other codec settings. Its perspective distortion caused by the wide focal length of the GoPro Lens + The low quality of the GoPro Lens itself. When I say low quality, I mean that in relative terms. The GoPro lens actually produces a pretty amazing image for what it is. But even when you enable ...

According to page 61 of the Hero7 Black manual, you can transfer files to your computer using USB-c. The manual only mentions being able to do this with the Quik application on your computer. Most likely your computer is missing the drivers necessary to exchange data with the camera due to either not using or not installing this application.

The primal problem will be the stabilization. GoPro's Cameras offer a decent image-stabilization and are wide-angled. This allows shakes and bumps to have less of an impact. If you now go for a camcorder with, say, a lens of 50mm, you will experience an extreme increase in shakiness. In other words: When you worry about your camera to break due to shakes ...

Autocue glass usually has a slightly murky / milky look to it and the image might seem a little but soft upon close inspection - I assume the same will go for ...

There are charts on their website, but in short, the Black allows for 4k recording, 60 mbps bandwidth, higher frame rates at various resolutions, simply put, it has a larger bottleneck enabling it to capture more data. I would suspect the cameras may be perhaps identical, and are firmware locked down into lower levels for the less expensive versions. ...
