Hero7 superview underexposed - too high contrast

Hi,

I had hero5, and I was pretty happy with the videos. I switched to hero6 and the superview was very underexposed at backlight situations. [or too high contrast]

when I switched to hero7 I was hoping to have this fixed. I was not that lucky :(

This seems to me a software issue, and not sure why it is not fixed after a buch of software versions, mainly, because this was working once on hero5 [and 4 and 3] already.

 

I was surfing with a friend, who had a hero5 under the very same circunstancias. [same time, same place, same mounting position]

I hope someone reads this post who can get the right people at gopro to fix it, and the answer won't be to buy hero8, because I have already upgraded from 6 to 7 hoping to get this problem fixed...

 

I dont have hero6 sample, but that would look the same as the hero7

Re: Hero7 superview underexposed - too high contrast

Hello @bravedive3136

 

What are the exact settings used?

Were the settings on default for both cameras?

 

Are the sample files shared above grabbed from a video file or is this taken as a photo?

 

Thanks!
