Re: GoPro Hero 6 - GRAIN ISSUE !!!

Tested again but this time using quick capture each time to start the recording. 4K/30 Superview and on the 7th recording I got the split screen. Turned the camera off and recorded three more without issue.

Re: GoPro Hero 6 - GRAIN ISSUE !!!

He seems to have received an response from GoPro, again acknowledging that there will be an november firmware update.

 

November 30 ;-)

I have always been a big fan of GoPro but what has been happening to me with my Hero 6 is unacceptable! I used to think all the negative reviews I seen on other peoples channels were untrue and they were just trying to push affiliate sales of other camera brands. I have had nothing but issue's ...

Re: GoPro Hero 6 - GRAIN ISSUE !!!

Hi all.

I did some tests as I was recording something for my car.

It was night ( dark ). It was in my garage with lights on the roof.

I recorded with the go pro hero 6 : 2.7K 60 fps and tried iso 400, iso 800, played with ev, ... 
I did the same recording with my old Sony Rx100 in 1080P

And eventually recorded as well in 2.7k with my smartphone : Samsung S7

 

Using Handbrake I transformed all the videos ( lossless keeping the same FPS as source ) into 1080P

 

I must admit that the WORSE result is the go pro¨( with the grain effect ).

Then I like the result with S7 and sony RX100 but I have a preference for the Rx100 ( even if it is an old camera )

So yes for the moment, I will use the go pro in daylight for filming things above 1080P

But if it is dark or low light, I will still use my Sony Rx100, waiting for an update from go pro.

Re: GoPro Hero 6 - GRAIN ISSUE !!!

Hello, Im having the same issues.While using 4k at 30 and 60fps, I shot videos outdoors on sunny days and is still grainy and pixaleted. See video screenshot attached and video link at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FrDCODnYiEM

Re: GoPro Hero 6 - GRAIN ISSUE !!!

Amauru,
What's are you settings? I can tell you even a 60 thousand dollar arri will have an issue with going from direct sunlight in the lense to a dimly lit tunnel. No camera can do that. Some noise is to be expected in low light situations with such a small sensor.

That said if you really want to lose the noise. Buy neat video and just pour a pot of tea for the render times.

Re: GoPro Hero 6 - GRAIN ISSUE !!!

November 19 and still no update?

 

I hope this isn't another GoPro Karma tragedy where they had to do a recall on all units sold.

 

You guys sure know how to screw up a company.
