    Hi,

    I'm trying to figure out the difference between 1080p 60fps 16:9 resolution versus the 1080p 60fps SV resolution. What does the SV mean?

    SV stands for Super View.
    I am not sure how it is achieved with SJCam but in GoPros it just stretches a more vertical 4:3 content to a full-screen 16:9 image.
    It is good for body-mounted or gear-mounted shots and should give the most immersive field of view.

    Well, sorta... It's still 4:3, but the edges are stretched look as though it's 16:9. Whatever the FOV was, it remains the same. A square in the middle of the image remains a square, but at the edge a square becomes a rectangle, longer than high. To be unkind, it's visual BS.

    What do you mean by 'vidual BS'?

    I mean it's still the same 4:3 image, pumped up with air to look like it's something it's not. IMNSHO, that's close to a good definition of BS.

    Cardinal rule of signal processing: you can't pull out what was never there to begin with. If there's no 170° FOV in 4:3, widening the image, to pretend there's a 170° FOV, is just a distorting a 4:3 image.

    See my post about enhancing a 1080@30 fps video.

    I still don't know what 'BS' means in English ;) Tried to google it out but didn't get any interesting results ;)

    That's what I thought it was. Thanks for confirming.
