GoPro Hero 6 - Video pixelization every 5-7 seconds

Hello,

I am having some issues with my GoPro Hero 6. When recording the videos (in any resolution/configuration) I see video cluttered with pixelization every 5-7 seconds (see videos below).

Basic information:
GoPro software: v01.60 (not upgrading to v02.10 due to poor stabilization and other issues)
SD Card: SanDisk Extreme 64GB MicroSDHC V30 U3 A1 (perfomed writting test on PC with result: 19.3 MByte/s writting speed). Card formatted by GoPro iOS app.

All my recording are coming from same, mentioned SD card and are affected. Now I am going to the next holidays and I do not want to loose another memories due to poor GoPro video quality. What could be the reason of this issue? Thank you in advance.

Here are sample videos:

Re: GoPro Hero 6 - Video pixelization every 5-7 seconds

Hi @megajump07687

 

What resolution was used on these videos?

Have you tried recording on a different mode?

 

For image/video quality related issues, part of the troubleshooting is to update to the latest software version.

You can also try resetting the camera and formatting the SD card on the camera itself. 

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!
