White shadows, snow conditions

[ New ]

hi, this is my first video test with a gopro in winter,  settings were 4k60fps superview but dont remember what were the protune settings.

i have some kind of white shadows reflecting on my gloves, see image .....   plz help,  i hope this is just a bad setting and not a defective product

I would say the lens cover steamed from your breath....

and the white scenery reflection could stress this out.

check next time if some fog does not develop on the lens cover....

 

this could happen when chest mounted in the winter...

 

 

nowadays, with this mask wearing, I cannot wear protective (sun)glasses on my MTB.

even I run or walk.

drive me crazy.

 

just me,

robert

Robert is right, a mixture of condensation and a dirty lens cover can cause they types of images you are seeing.

 

Use a good hydrophobic cleaner on your lens.  Make sure you clean the lens with a clean soft microfiber cloth.  Do not use tissue papertowel or even your t-shirt as these can easily scratch the lens cover.
