    In my SJ7 STAR gyro sensor / stabilisation is not working at all.

    Yes, I did set video resolution correctly it's 1080 60 (and 30) FPS with 16:9 and on the main screen I see white "hand" icon.

    But the video is very woobly, even when walking and having camera in hand.

    I tried FW 1.21, 1.20, 1.18. The same.

    This is 1080 60FPS 16:9 with white anti shake icon visible, gyro on obviously.

    Very good camera :) previous one had problems with audio recording...

    Maybe you just expect too much from the digital gyro? It can usually manage vibrations caused by shaking hands much better, than vibrations caused by driving on a very rough surface.

    1080 30FPS 16:9 gyro on

    This is my second sj7 star, in previous one audio recording was not working properly. In this one audio is ok but the gyro have defect, in other camera was working like a charm.

    I use camera on motorcycle helmet, stabilized by my body and image recorded by this camera i shaking also.

    I have the same problem as the non-functional gyro if AUTO LOW LIGHT is active between the settings.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I switched off this option and now gyro is working fine when mounted to my helmet while riding.

    This is my second SJCAM product and for sure the last one.

    Audio problems, sloppy assembly, low quality accesories (comparing to Sj 4000 wifi which had better quality accesories made from stronger plastic). And some software problems.
