But no idea what are the bitrates for particular vifeo modes.

@mattbsure - screengrabs made in VLC from .mp4 SOOC
I've read somewhere, that 60fps bitrate is the same as for 30fps. No idea if that's true, actually hard to believe, but if so - that could be the problem (60fps would have half the quality). This was @60fps with stabilisation, perfect light conditions.

I do agree that the first of the photos looks lower in quality than most screen grabs that I see, though that may be because the dog is moving and there may be some motion blur there. It looks like the grab is taken from a 1080p video, which also won't be the most ideal for grabbing shots from a video.
Depending on what camera you've got, I'd say it's best to go with a 2.7K video at 60fps to get a higher resolution photo and still have the frame rate high enough that you avoid some of that motion blur.
All in all, however, still photos will give you a much better quality than screen grabs from a video.

I just came back from filming with the hero 5 for the first time. 1080p 60fps. footage practically unusable because of all the noise or artifacts or whatever you want to call it... kind of disappointed. Is this because of the stabilization?? Just look at the ground... it's a mess. And it definitely is not motion blur.

Both of these photos look like bitrate problems. The Hero 5 Black can record up to 60 megabits per second (or 7.5 megabytes per second). This "blocky" effect is most often seen in fast moving action where the bitrate is not high enough to "describe" the image as it is constantly changing. When the video is static, the image isn't constantly changing and therefore the bitrate is high enough to "describe" the changes in the image.
