Hero 7 Black 4K 60Fps doesn't look like 4K 60Fps?

Hey guys!

First off all, to clear things up. My SD-card = SanDisk Extreme Plus 64Gb 170mb/s UP and 90mb/s Download.

So. The issue i have is the following: 

I've recorded some testfootage a few min ago, played it on the PC. (Loaded it on the pc through GoPro Quik) and it seems like it's recording on something like 1080p instead of the 4K 60FPS settings i placed it on. The filespecs in Windows 10 say it's 4K indeed and 59.94 FPS. 

Is it just that the GoPro is awfull in Low-Light, and do i need to use Protune or do i have some serious issue's? 

I can test tomorrow in full daylight once i received my package (Adapter plate for Gimbal*)

Beside that. I noticed while recording the last 30 seconds, my screen on the GoPro started showing some flickering. 

By the way. Is there a way to disable the function that the screen goes off while filming? 


*I always used my iPhone Xs Max to record. But soon after recording with my own phone, i noticed how hard it is to keep your phone clean so you have enough storage. So i thought, let's buy a GoPro. The GoPro That doesn't needs a Gimbal, but it's still going to be on a Gimbal :-).

I'm not seeing any loss in resolution issues with your test footage. It's coming through on YouTube in 4K 60. Can you describe what specific issues you're seeing?

 

As for the screensaver, you can change that in the Display settings.

I’m sorry. I’m wrong. I thought I adjusted the ISO-Settings and was suprised with the ‘white-noise’ effect in the screen, as I thought i adjusted the iso to 800. But I left it on 3200K 😬😬😬. Actually, nothings wrong.

However, i’m a bit worried about the temperature of my GoPro while using it outside while it’s like 0 Celsius/ 32 Fahrenheit.
It’s getting so hit, nearly burned my hands in it. Is there a way to reduce the temperature?

Basically implementing 4K and HEVC is such a small device is not possible without overheating. Even with the small sensor found in the GoPro.
