Hero 6 - Severe Purple Fringing

Hi all,

 

I just got back from my holiday and have been using the Hero 6 there quite actively.

 

Being autumn in Japan, it was predominantly cloudy and grey most of the time.While the video quality truly did amaze me, there were certain times where the captured images were simply unusable due to the purple fringing.  I am wondering if I can do anything to improve the situation?

 

Settings: ProTune Enabled , WB on Auto, ISO max 800 and Min 100

"hungry" for light   ... Smiley LOL

 

light is everithing

in photo community there is a saying:

" the beginners concern is about the equipment.... the amateurs concern is about the settings...the prosumers concern is the lack of subjects... and the pro concern is about light.."

 

so GP6 is a pro... Smiley HappyHeart

 

 

 

 

I think GoPro change the way camera sets automatically (if allowed...) the parameters.

 

beeing an action camera, the first prio is to keep the shutter as low as possible

therefore will push the ISO.

same picture...in da office....PT-off (all auto) and PT-on ISO max=100

 

Capture2.JPG

 

PT-on ISO max=100 ... shutter 1/12sec is not an "action" shutter

 

 

GOPR7941.JPG

 

 

PT-off ...>> ISO=1202 shutter=1/143 - more close to an "action" but noisy...

in v01.51 this blue fringing was present...this is a picture contre jour taken in the autumn.... 

 

GOPR4422_1507990347181_high (2).JPG  

 

 

in v01.60 I do not see that obvious fringe... 

 

I made a test:

here is the original picture taken at ISO (min) 100,(200),400,800,1600,3200

I cropped approximatively the red area from each (I skipped ISO-200)

 

yes, above 1600, there is a blue there around the tree branches.... but it is mostly a colour noise, normal at higher ISO...

Re: Hero 6 - Severe Purple Fringing

Re: Hero 6 - Severe Purple Fringing

Are you sure this is a firmware/software issue only?

 

Some has suspected that this is caused by the front protective glass (changed to gorilla glas on the hero6?).

Re: Hero 6 - Severe Purple Fringing

You ended up with an ISO of 609 and a shutter 1/240. With a f/2.8 aperture, higher ISO and scattered light, you are much more likely to see chromatic aberration such as this. Bright cloudy or hazy skies are strong sources of scattered violet and UV light, so tend to provoke the problem.

I did read on a photography web site, I'll look for the link but don't have it now, that Gorrilla glass can create a general defocus of the shortest wavelengths resulting in a purple fringe when the light hits it at certain angles. I did some test with and without the lens cover. I didn't see any difference.

Also, you can fix the purple fringe in post by just scaling down the blues.

Re: Hero 6 - Severe Purple Fringing

Good question...I recall upgrading it some time during the trip but cannot be sure if it was before this photo was taken or not. Possibily not. I will attempt to take some more photos this weekend to see if the issue still persists.

Re: Hero 6 - Severe Purple Fringing

Would it be a good idea to lower the max ISO to 400 ? The abberation does seem to appear more when it involves me pointing the GP to trees that have the sky peeking through in the background. I noticed that in other photos as well where there are trees.

 

I will post more samples if I see this happening even in well-lit areas. I definitely did not see any during my trip when it was bright and sunny.

 

I must say, even with a better performance under low-light compared to the GP4, the GP6 still is hungry for light that is for sure.
