I'm relatively new to my GoPro, and one thing I haven't been able to figure out is why all of the footage taken is so dull and gray. For example, I recently when on a trip to Belize where the weather was bright and sunny all day long, but when I got back I saw that all of the footage taken outdoor had a grayish tint to it. It didn't matter if I was on land or water (I thought maybe the camera was color-correcting when it saw the green/blue water), and it happened at any time of day.
I read some stuff about using the ProTune settings on the app, but are you really expected to boot up the camera and the app and tune every shot every single time you use the camera? Considering a lot of my activities were water-based, I didn't have my phone with me and couldn't change settings on the fly. It seems odd that a camera made for capturing outdoor action would be so dark and dull by default, so now I'm wondering if I missed something obvious because it seems like the white balance isn't adjusting appropriately. FWIW, I have this set to auto.
Here's an example still from a video taken on a sunny day, a few fluffy clouds here and there but otherwise the sky was picturesque blue and bright.

So, is there no solution for this? This is just how it should look? I emailed GoPro's support to ask about it a couple months ago and never heard back. :/

Gopro must be called they no longer accept todays emails they conduct a new way of business since Summer 2017 or earlier.
You will need to call. if a staff member here comes about they will tell you make sure you are set up correctly, or adjust in an editor a photo editor. Maybe when other members of this community that has your issue, or helpful info, they may pop in or not bother.
To me it looks good not great but not dull if asked.
