Hi @loyaljump73000

 

May I know the exact settings you are using? 

Are you shooting on a well lit situation or dark? 

 

Please try to lower your ISO and you should get less noise or no visible noise at all.

 

 

Regards,

-Jay

Hi Jay,

 

I'm using the Hero 2018. I don't believe I can adjust ISO.

 

Lighting probably could have been better. But the video itself looks like really low quality in Imovie.

Hello @loyaljump73000

 

You are correct. There is no way to adjust the ISO setting on the HERO(2018) camera. Will you be able to post a sample clip so we can also take a look at it? Also, are you checking from the camera display? through the GoPro App, or other media player? Which resolution setting was used for the recordings? Hope to hear back from you. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius
