High contrast highlights blurred on the edges

I recently noticed that the edges of high contrast white highlights on my vids - like sun reflecting on water ripples or on high reflective surfaces - are smudged or blurred. Is the camera unable to maintain sharp edges on highly reflective objects? Is this a sign the camera is defective? Or is this just a preference that is not set correctly?
This is on a GoPro hero 6 black.
Thx in advance for the help.

Re: High contrast highlights blurred on the edges

Hi @gregusa

 

Did you have ProTune turned out

Did you notice if the same happens when on photo mode?

So we can assess the issue further, would you mind sharing a sample video?

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply.

ProTune is on. The same issue happens in video and photo mode. 

the camera is still in v01.60

Please check your inbox for a link to a short video sample (2.7K/60fps/LNR).

Hi @gregusa

 

Thanks for sharing a sample video.

Try turning ProTune off and see how the video compares.

Also, we recommend updating the camera to the latest version.
