  3. Ting Li on May 28, 2021 at 3:09 am

    You are my favorite Youtuber. I am waiting for your GoPro comparison, Please do 7,8,9 (Because I have 7 with me lol)

  4. tomcat0604 on May 28, 2021 at 3:10 am

    Thanks authen. Do you think the dji osmo action will still be worth getting over hero 9. Luv ur work from down under.

  5. P M on May 28, 2021 at 3:11 am

    The hero 8 is too contrasty

  6. Gary Ong on May 28, 2021 at 3:13 am

    For reelsteady must use gopro 6 or gopro 8 to test . Gopro 7 cant work well even soft mount

  7. Rutger van Gent on May 28, 2021 at 3:13 am

    Did You update the insta 360 to the newest firmware/software?? @AuthenTech – Ben Schmanke

  8. Ferdi Solaria on May 28, 2021 at 3:14 am

    Waiting hero 9 review🙏

  9. Jamari Ap on May 28, 2021 at 3:15 am

    You should test the mavic air 2

  10. Garip Teknolojiler on May 28, 2021 at 3:17 am

    Drone died… XD

  11. Kuro Wanna on May 28, 2021 at 3:18 am

    Wow, that drone can carry all those weight.

  12. Scot Lam on May 28, 2021 at 3:18 am

    You had me at "THREE action cams on ONE drone?!?"

  13. Piyush yadav on May 28, 2021 at 3:18 am

    Bro…where is your review on GoPro Hero 9?

  14. Esdras on May 28, 2021 at 3:19 am

    Please, make the Review of poco x3 NFC ( about de câmeras)

  15. George Booth on May 28, 2021 at 3:21 am

    What drone is it

  16. Akos Simon on May 28, 2021 at 3:21 am

    Question: GoPro 9 with RealSteady Go in post (GOPRO must then have any stabilsiation completely OFF! as you know),… and a second Hero 9 with its new Hypersmooth 3.0 , both mounted same direction. I would be incredibly curious if Realsteady still does a better job in stabilisation on the new GoPro 9, then its new internal Hypersmooth 3.0 …….. and also if realsteady still crops much less from left and right top and bottom, … since GoPro 8 ‘s internal hypersmoth 2.0 cropped a lot away from canvas left and right and top and bottom, and in comparissom realsteady kept 20% more canvas on each sides on gopro 8 footages… Would you consider doing this test?…no one has thought of it yet so far….

  17. FULL THROTTLE 97 on May 28, 2021 at 3:22 am

    Hero 7 vs hero 9

  18. Andrew Smiley on May 28, 2021 at 3:23 am

    Out of all of them, I think the GoPro 8 wins. Although the One R and the GoPro 7 look great too, I think you’re gonna get the best shots out of the 8 for your time. Great vid Ben!

  19. 509FPV on May 28, 2021 at 3:26 am

    You literally used the worst camera for reelsteady the 8 would have been a better option for reelsteady

  20. FLOODOFSINS on May 28, 2021 at 3:27 am

    Adorama and Casey neistat got their hands on a GoPro hero 9.

  21. BARYA MANILA on May 28, 2021 at 3:29 am

    Hi what fpv drone are u using?

  22. Heavy_ hate on May 28, 2021 at 3:30 am

    Thank you for your videos! Nice, simply and fun <3
    Test are informative enough for me 😊

  23. Fly 4 fun Tech Freak on May 28, 2021 at 3:30 am

    DJI Osmo Action……….

  24. importon on May 28, 2021 at 3:32 am

    Hero 7 is worst camera to use with ReelSteady. Try it with the Hero 8 it will look great and you don’t even need a special mount.

  25. BANG RAFKI on May 28, 2021 at 3:33 am

    Wow… Back ☕👍🏻👍🏻😅

  26. Gertsch on May 28, 2021 at 3:34 am

    Save some time people and either get the Hero 6 Black or Hero 8 Black with reelsteady.

    This comparison is pretty much flawed. The gyro of the Hero 7 doesn’t really work with reelsteady as it should (sometimes not even with a soft mount).
    Also it would make much more sense to get ND filters for all of them and keep the settings in manual mode.

  27. Robert Conrad on May 28, 2021 at 3:38 am

    Was this filmed using updated bit rate for the 1 inch they released yesterday? Not sure if you got the firmware early or not.

  28. LOFLERPictures on May 28, 2021 at 3:39 am

    Hello, GREAT video !! What FPV drone do you use ?
    Thank you !!!

  29. Rahat Hasan on May 28, 2021 at 3:39 am

  30. Adventures of Ivy Devi on May 28, 2021 at 3:39 am

  31. Caloy Leal on May 28, 2021 at 3:42 am

    Great content dear Keep it up! very useful action cameras God bless.

  32. Adam B on May 28, 2021 at 3:44 am

    I can’t wait when you record hero9 review 🙂

  33. BP on May 28, 2021 at 3:46 am

    Let’s pick a GoPro that is one of the worst to work with ReelSteady when mounted on a quad. Then mount that GoPro on a quad and use it for a comparison.

  34. eNeVe Family on May 28, 2021 at 3:46 am

    Can’t wait for your GoPro nine review and comparison.

  35. Nedapaz on May 28, 2021 at 3:46 am

    Honestly, the quality of the 8 results looks better even than the hero 9

  36. NG Status Song on May 28, 2021 at 3:46 am

    We want Rock steady osmo action

  37. Pablo Miranda on May 28, 2021 at 3:47 am

    La 9?????????

  38. Shiva Kumar on May 28, 2021 at 3:48 am

    Gopro hero 9 has been released when will your review we are eagerly waiting

  39. nyayam vaipu on May 28, 2021 at 3:49 am

    Waiting desperately for the gp 9 review from you. Love from India. You are really better than many of the reviewers down there buddy.
    Please try reviewing all the modes in depth.

  40. 805fpv on May 28, 2021 at 3:50 am

    How the heck did you lift all that ??? lol God bless you Ben 🙂

  41. Aarayna's Lifestyle on May 28, 2021 at 3:50 am

    Bro…when are you bringing hero9??

  42. Will EDC on May 28, 2021 at 3:51 am

    I hope the hero 9 doesn’t change much in the body. I bought some screen protectors for the 8 and never bought it haha.
    It’s really crazy that that drone can handle 3 cameras

  43. Ruben van Eupen on May 28, 2021 at 3:51 am

    Hero 7 is well known to not work well with rsgo. You should have taken the 6 or 8 for that purpose.

  44. Yohalmo Coto on May 28, 2021 at 3:51 am

    Just as a heads up…Hero 7 is a hit or miss with reelsteady even with the specialized mount. Best results with reelsteady is with either the hero 6 with version 1.6 or Hero 8 any version. Review quality is on point like always! Hero 8 is sooooo good! Cant wait to see the hero 9. Looking forward to your review.

  45. Smiley Animations on May 28, 2021 at 3:54 am

    Wow! This actually helped me alot!

  46. Samuel Beacham on May 28, 2021 at 3:54 am
