Cowes for lunch

I made arrangements to meet up with a friend in Cowes for lunch today and by ferry was not an option



This footage was taken by my new Hero 7. Comparing with Hero 4 the quality is for sure far superior. Even the bow of the rib is curved and not distorted ie; straight like with Hero 4. Surprising you can't hear the engine noise even positioned in the same place as Hero 4

The battery life is for sure shorter than the ones for Hero 4 and somehow I just cannot pair it with the smart remote. I will still keep trying but will complain about the batteries

My comment was intended as a compliment. That said I respect your succinct life advice in general. Employment and as little stupidity as possible are to be commended.

Andre, is this the hero black? Does the new image stabilisation make a really noticeable difference? It looks very smooth on the footage but not sure its much different from the 3’s ive always used. I’ve been looking at the 360 deg version but at £600 odd, it would have to be seriously outstanding to warrant paying that!

Yes it is the Hero 7 Black . I have looked at my footage taken by the Hero 5 Silver and there is a huge difference. The noise from the engine is reduced and yet at rest picked up our conversation at the console.

I just did not like your comments "like you" without that no issues

For sure the battery will last 2 hours and if you look at my earlier go pro clips they will give you a good idea what footage you will get. Go on you tube and checkout parker ribs Chanel
Make sure you post some here for all to enjoy
