GoPro Hero6 video still grainy after 1.60 update

Unfortunately I still have very grainy video on my hero6 even in decent light conditions. This is after updating to 1.60 firmware update. Was so keen on the Hero6, upgrading from my Hero4 silver which is actually taking better footage than my hero6! Is there a new fix expected for this?! Anybody else having this issue?

Re: GoPro Hero6 video still grainy after 1.60 update

@adily123 - It's possible that there was an issue with the installation of the camera's firmware. If you can, please do a manual update on the camera's firmware. Instructions on how to do that can be found at https://gopro.com/update/hero6.

 

Please let us know if that improves the issue. Also, can confirm which SD card you're using in the camera?

 

Thanks,

Jeff

Re: GoPro Hero6 video still grainy after 1.60 update

Thanks for responding. I've done the manual update as suggested, however the grain is still way too high. Some screenshots attached.

I'm using a SanDisk Extreme Micro SD XC1 V30.

Wow, the fish eye effect is so bad. Thinking of buying the Hero 6 but so far I am not impressed with the product. Specs are good but so many complains GoPro.
