Re: 120 FPS far worse than last Hero 3 ? How come ?

Ok I will try to play with Shutter Speed and see if it solves teh issue.

However I googled it a bit and it appears that shutter speed is something you can only change in photo mode, are you sure it applies to camera mode as well ?

 

Thx for your answer so far, it looks that it shoudl be related to that.

Re: 120 FPS far worse than last Hero 3 ? How come ?

Yes you can. Thats the new best feature of Hero 5. 

 

I had the same issue while shooting my biking and realized this. Also note that increasing the shutter speed decreases the amount light entering the lens. So in dark environments decrease the shutter speed.
