Re: scan lines on my video

Sorry to hear about that @johnyeah.

So nothing to worry about. 

It seems that the camera has a higher shutter speed, then its stated.

When the shutter speed is faster then the light you get a weird effect like this. 

So try enabling protune. Set the ISO at 1600, GoPro Color, WB 5500K, and any

the rest on default, or you can play around and see what the rest does.

Re: scan lines on my video

thanks, will play around the protune settings

 

could this be easily fixed by editing app?

@johnyeah

I don't think you can really edit this without losing the integrity of the entire picture.

The best answer really is just slowing down your shutter speed.  This effect is the same as when you see video recording of older computer monitors and TV screens where the camera shutter seed is so fast that it actually captures the lines being written to the screen.
