GoPro Hero 3 Black wavy picture when static mounted

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

When my GoPro Hero 3 Black is mounted on a tripod and there are no vibrations (and also when hand held) SOMETIMES the picture is wavey as if the scene is being shot through the hot air rippling off a very hot central heating radiator.

 

This is not a rolling shutter issue as the camera and subject are not moving.

 

This SOMETIMES happend when using a LED ring light round the lens and SOMETIMES DOESN'T, so I can't put it down to radio interference coming from the LED electronics.

 

It sometimes happend in hot and damp locations such as in a shower.

 

Any ideas what is wrong please?

Hi @reddawn3877,

 

Do you have any examples of what you are seeing? Some of our users may have some suggestions for you once we have a better idea of what you are seeing!

 

Best,
