Why would my GoPro Hero 4 Silver have better nightlapse images?

Hello all, 

 

I am new to the world of GoPro, I have aquired a Hero 4 Black and a Hero 4 Silver (with the LCD). 

I have then set to the same settings and looking at the same sky. They are both running on the latest firmware v5.00 

I have tried swapping the SD cards andbatteries (i know a reach) with no change. 

The images from the black are more grainy and noisy. If anything I would expect the silver to be of lower quality. 

 

Any ideas? What am I doing wrong? 

 

Thanks

Hi @toughboost74613

 

So we can look into this further, would you be able to share some sample files?

You may share the raw files via Dropbox.

 

Thanks!

You should be loading exactly the same images i see the H4B has a light on the left while ther H4S does not and seems darker so to be fair could you get the same exact images?   they look great both of them if asked.
