Re: GoPro 7 major fail - poor quality video & hypersmooth

take a look...

in low lights protune help you to set the perfect shutter speed ( EIS need this to work better ) and ISO limit to reduce Noise...auto exposure with low light cause bad videos and blurry frames ( hard to use with EIS ); 1/60 .. 1/125sec produce a good sharp frame, 1/15sec a blurry one that destroy the video quality

GoPro Hero7 Black, Hero6 Black, and Hero5 Black Low Light Comparison. All tested in 4k, 30fps, wide mode with no stabilization or Protune.

Re: GoPro 7 major fail - poor quality video & hypersmooth

If you're shooting at night and getting blurry footage from your GoPro 7, go into the settings and make sure you have automatic low light detection turned off.  This decreases the frame rate to allow more light in, but as a result it will introduce blur and make the footage look jerky if there's any movement.

Re: GoPro 7 major fail - poor quality video & hypersmooth

[ Edited ]

Thanks, that’s a handy little tip. Note: the low light mode is only available when shooting at 60fps or higher. And if turned on, the GoPro only reduces the frame rate to 24fps or 30fps, nothing less.

Which is still frustrating because on the GoPro 6 I always shot in 4k 30fps and had no problem with the blurry effect in low light conditions. So it seems silly that the GoPro 7 needs to be used at 60fps in low light conditions to avoid the blurry effect.

Also understand that shooting in 60fps also reduces the overall quality of the footage which isn’t ideal for low light. I.e. if shooting at 100mb/s bitrate at 60fps, each frame only has a maximum of 1.67mb of data. If you shoot at 100mb/s bitrate 30fps then each frame gets a maximum of 3.33mb of data (twice as much data). In low light conditions you’d technically want as much data per frame to allow for better post production options, so you’d ideally want to shoot at 30fps. Although with the blurry effect it seems this isn’t an option

Re: GoPro 7 major fail - poor quality video & hypersmooth

Andregixxer...what was the point in that video you posted?  The camera is static...try moving the camera about and see the quality lol.

Shooting with the camera steady and shooting action shots are two completely different things.

Re: GoPro 7 major fail - poor quality video & hypersmooth

Could I turn off my protune on my gopro. Would that make a difference in low quality video? Or would that make it worse? Let me know. Thanks.

This depends on personal preference. @hardylift55037
