Hero 7 Silver Constrast

Hi,
I just bought a Hero 7 Silver and tried it out this morning on a trail.  I've found that if the sky appears anywhere in the frame, the contrast becomes extreme (the sky goes white and the woods go almost black).  Is there a way to tune it to have a bit less constrast?  I will attach a file shot at around mid-day to illustrate the issue.

Hello @bobr6374. You may want to use exposure control to improve the image captured. There is information about it at https://gopro.com/help/articles/Question_Answer/What-is-Exposure-Control that you may refer to.

Hi  mariustanya,

That is exactly what I needed to know.  I think it will enable me to find a good balance and better exposure level.  

I really appreciate your guidance on this.
