I have the Hero 8 and have had the same issue with blue spots appearing in the center of my nightlapse. I have done multiple nightlapse and they all have the blue and red spots. It seems to dissappear once the sun comes up and more light is available. Hopefully this can be fixed with a firmware update soon?

Interesting info. I wonder if it is ISO related or if it is related to shutter speed in some way as both would drop when it gets lighter.

I tried a night lapse saving as images and still got red hot pixels. I was at ISO1600 though. I haven't tried using raw images yet. Might do more experimenting cos GoPro don't seem to be trying anything.

This is my first GoPro and love the daytime videos but night lapse is pointless with this bad quality. I've heard the Hero7 doesn't suffer this issue.

I have a new hero 8 and I am having this issue as well, very noticeable blue and red dots on night photos / timelapses. On a side note, is it normal for the camera to heat up to the point that you can not hold it with your hand?

 

TIA

Is there any update on this, as I am experiencing the same problem with my new gopro hero 8 - several very bright red and blue dots in nightlapse mode which make the camera pretty much useless for this purpose, which is one of the reasons I bought it.  I think this looks really bad for GoPro if they do not even respond to this issue, and update customers who have posted to this board.
