Hey guys, I updated to v1.6 recently and decided to run a test to see which is the best Sharpness setting to use, Low, Medium or High?
The results are so minimal, one user on the channel said that his Hero 5 when swtiching to High sharpness was so sharpened...is this probably Firmware v1.6 related??
Here's a link to the video/test:

I saved an image from each.
than I cropped to have almost the same size, and made a GIF
to me the differences are obvious
try to "read" the GIF animation:
high - high - medium - low
clear-clear - unclear - noclear
look also at the numbers on Cisco phone dial...

now... when you look at the footage, maybe is not as obvious.
in v01.51, in low light, I always used sharp=low, just to get rid of that colour noise in dark areas (shadows).
now I'm using high without problems.

Is it just me or from what I see from what you guys posted, the hero 5 is more sharp than the hero 6 ? The image quality seem much better on the hero 5. I also saw a video about this:
Do you think the hero 6 sharpness can be / will be fixed in a future firmware update ? If yes, then I hope it's sooner than later.

the video was posted in Nov 5
the new firmware release date is Nov 20
so this comparison was made on the old firmware.
