Hero 9: Is there a way to turn off sharpen in video?

[ New ]

I have video set for 4K/60p.  I have ProTune enabled.  I have sharpen set to Low.

The results are awful when enlarged.  Frame grabs are a disaster.  Thick black outlines on everything if enlarged at all.

In photo mode, setting sharpen to Low eliminated this problem.

Is there any way to get rid of this horrible, excessive sharpening in the video mode?

Hi @sharpblaze360

 

What version is the camera on?

What are the rest of the settings used?

It will also be best if you can share a sample file.

 

Thanks!

Did some more fiddling after my original question.  The camera is somehow switching from one video mode to another.  Now I have set the desired parameters for all the various video modes (at least the ones I'm aware of) so that seems to have solved the over-sharpening problem.

Now I have to solve the random mode-switching problem.

 

Here are the parameters

Version 01.52

Standard 4K/60 L+

Res 2.7K/60

Lens Superview

Hypersmooth On

Scheduled capture OFF

Duration No Limit

HindSight OFF

Timer OFF

Zoom 1.0

PROTUNE

Bitrate STANDARD

Shutter AUTO

EV Comp 0

WB AUTO

ISO Min 100

ISO Max 1600

Sharpness LOW

Color GOPRO

Raw Audio OFF

Wind AUTO

Thanks for the information shared. @sharpblaze360

Which mode does the camera switch to?

Do you have the camera paired with the app or Thw Remote?

If you haven't yet, see if resetting the camera will make a difference.
