Hero 5 Black photo quality

Hi guys,

 

i would like to share something with you. Last week I went skiing and I took many photos with my H5B.

 

i choose linear mode to avoid lens distortion and I noticed that the quality was not so good so I made some comparisions today and it appear that the linear mode is degrading photos quality. (Probably due to a software picture correction)

 

so I will keep stuck to wide mode next time because it's far better.
