GoPro 8 dead pixels (sensor) at iso 100-400. Three cameras in a row!

Hello!

My heart is broken!

I’m buying the third camera GoPro 8 in a row and the same thing!

With ISO 100-400 in 4k 60fps, I see mostly white and blue dots (from one to three) on different cameras in the video.

I return the camera to the store, get another one and again the same thing. I don’t understand anything at all...

Is that all the cameras of this model?

I bought a lot of accessories and vacation is coming and I'm in a panic!

What do you think?

@fishycomics 

My topic is about video, I attached links to a video on which the blue dot is clearly visible on a normal monitor with a normal setting. I shoot 4k 60 fps. Settings may vary. In any settings I need, this defect appears.

At the moment, it’s not all the same, GoPro is silent for several days, the number of complaints about dots in the video and photo is huge. I made my conclusions.

Do not buy this product - it is a lottery without a win for your huge money.

For a photo I have a SLR camera, even if there are no points on the photo, it doesn’t matter to me, because they are on the video.

Iso 100, exposure 30 seconds. It's just a disaster and a shame

no problem  Troubleshooting does not stop on video  it needs to be explored  further, what I am saying. that said return go get a fourth, fifth, six find a new Lott, not the same batch that seems to be the stores you went to.
