2/4/2015. Gopro has just released an update for both the Hero4 Silver AND the Hero 4 Black. Adds 60FPS to 2.7K and 240fps to 720p and VIDEO time lapse on the Hero 4 Black. Also add SELF ORIENTATION. No need to set Up/Down in menu. Now does it automatically.

Nice stuff. Where did you purchase the H4-3D gimbal?

Good low light performance… was your ISO at 400 or 1600? I seem to get a good amount of grain at 1600 and usually have to de-noise

Just curious to get opinions from people who have used a Hero 4 on an H3-3D and an H4-3D. I've noticed the H3-3D going limp under forward velocity over 5 m/s. Does the H4 seem as if the motors are getting more power? Also, is it physically different? My H4 side button is about 10% covered by the gimbal which can make pressing it a PITA.
Thanks much!

The H4-3D is perfectly balanced for the GoPro4. It doesn't have any issues under heavy forward movement.

If I put an ND filter on, the balance gets thrown out of whack and the gimbal begins to go limp on the tilt axis if I move quickly forward.

I,m seriously considering purchasing one of these gimbals once more people respond with their experiences with it. What with the new GoPro Hero 4 Black update,you can now shoot in 2.7K @ 60fps. Shooting in 2.7K allows room to correct the fisheye effect in post without seriously degrading the image. That and 60fps makes for some nice smooth video.

The motors are bigger than h3-3d? FPV interference is fixed?

I made an unboxing video of the H4-3D. Not too impressed. Does anyone else feel the same way about the gimbal?

This is the more enjoyable of the two to watch, I think, though not as much information.

Thanks for your impressions. I noticed you had what i think is a DJI AVL 5.8 transmitter on the back bottom of your P2. What was it mounted too? Thanks.
