Are you not having any issues of grain/pixelation while shooting 4k hevc at 60fps on a GPHero6? Not sure what's your suggested solution here? To stop filming "the sun", "a tunnel" or stop using Gopro at all? Come on genius!

well, if you are talking to me, I am no genius but thanks for the undeserved kind word. And I am not critizing you - just trying to answer your post.
1) I shoot in 4k and 2.7k. I create my videos in same, but render down for Youtube as they can barely handle 1440. That is why you are seeing 1080p/60 fps. But the 4k looks great on my TV compared to the 1080p.
2) I am saying that you shouldn't aim your camera at the sun unless at sunrise or sundown. Not only can it damage your lens but the exposure is so intense that it defeats your camera's abilities to process the shot.
3) My point about the tunnel is that your shots were good, so were many of the other clips. But sunlight and shadows can overwhelm the Hero6. That is the reality of the situation.They do on my Hero5 as well. So, I suggest you keep your 6. They say an upgrade is coming soon - I hope so. I am keeping mine no matter what but I switch back to my 5 on the trails because I pan a lot and my adjustments to esposure do not seem to be working well. I am not happy about this at all. I can't be bothered to mess with the settings every 2 minutes, just like Berghaus says. So, I will tough it out and see what the GoPro says.

No bro, my genius comment wasnt for you, but for this guy Daniel15 that coments like crazy and doesnt help! I agree with you and Berghaus. After some serious rendering tests, I came out with something slighly better, but the Grain is still present. I had to render at max bitrate of 240 (VBR, 2Pass). Altho it gives me a huge file size, it's worth the render. I hope GP comes out with a solution in the next firmware update for this, specially in 4k 60fps so we can use better rendering settings! Fingers crossed, cheers

Action cam doesn't mean not needing to adjust settings. In most cases you can get away without any adjustments, but if you want the best results, sometimes it will be necessary. Filming into the sun or in tunnels are a couple of examples for when adjustments are necessary.
