    My default came up 'Center' on early version T5e. Found 'Center" noticeably balloons the center area (like putting a magnifying glass over pic middle) while editing out fisheye using various algorithms in the program. Haven't edited using Multispot yet so can't wait to try when new T5e arrives. Probably no difference LOL
    Just wondered if it effected the scan rate of the sensor too while firmware is working on the "positioning" but was just guessing.

    New 4K test video, now with chest mount. Forgot to warm up the casing before recording hence there's cloudy image at the beginning of the video. It will clear up gradually as the air is vented trough the back door. Also forgot to decrease the exposure setting and the sky is heavily over-exposed.

    IMO audio is pretty good for an internal microphone. 4K works better this way as there isn’t as much horizontal movement. The trade off is increased shakyness as the chest mount don't absorb bumps as well as head mount.

    Clips are recorded with 5min loop setting and joined with Machete, seems to work flawlessly.

    is the 8S the same exact form factor as GoPro Hero 3/4? Wondering if it would fit the same housing. I'm pretty sure the buttons dont line up, but I guess thats what the remote is good for ;)

    If it's any help I can assure you it shares the exact same form factor with Git2.

    Thanks! I have a git2, which is what I was comparing it to. Looks like the 8S top and front buttons should line up the same as Git2, only the side buttons are different. Looks like 8S should fit my Removu S1 gimbal no problem (y)
