Hero Black 7 Pixelated Photos - HELP

Hey guys!

 

I was wondering if anyone can help me out. I just got the Hero 7 black and have noticed that all my pictures are extermely pixelated. I will include an example (100% crop). Coming for the Hero 4 silver, I never once experienced this problem. I was shocked when I downloaded the photos and saw exactly how bad they looked. Can someone help me out?

 

Thanks,

 

Gerry

Re: Hero Black 7 Pixelated Photos - HELP

Where you using Superphoto, Protune ....
What are your settings?
The ISO in this photo is 382 and the shutter is 1/692. Other than that, we need more info (Mode, EV, WB, Sharpness, Color Profile).

In General it's not looking Pixalated here.  Like said if Protunes was on then see Danials post about the  settings, if it was off . not sure what else to say.

Re: Hero Black 7 Pixelated Photos - HELP

I'm not seeing any pixilation either.  There is a slight bit of grain/noise in the photo, but that's more to do with your ISO settings and lighting conditions than anything.  You really do need to share the exact photo settings you were using or a photo that shows the issue in a better light (pardon the pun).

Re: Hero Black 7 Pixelated Photos - HELP

Thanks for the message. This picture was shot using the basic camera settings out of the box.  I just find it hard to believe that my Hero 4 photos look so much better SOC. I will play around with Protune this weekend when I am not so busy with work. You have any pointers on what settings are the best for taken pictures on the 7? Thanks again for responding.

Re: Hero Black 7 Pixelated Photos - HELP

The best setting is to shoot in RAW and edit in Lightroom. I believe what you are seeing is tonal mapping from superphoto
