very poor quality videos with hero 5 black, even when there is no movement

Hi guys,

 

I recently upgraded from Hero 4 silver to Hero 5 black and most of the videos are very grainy, very poor quality to the point that it is a pain to watch. Have a look at this video: https://youtu.be/Mad2bd6kE5g, dynamic videos are even worse. The video was shot at 1080 60fps with video stabilisation, ProTune turned off as I tend to use default settings for everything. I never had such a problem with quality with Hero 4 silver, looks to me like something is wrong with my camera. I would appreciate any advise, maybe there is something that I am doing completely wrong and don't realise that. 

 

Similarly with potos, see attached one taken on a sunny day in Thailand. This is truly rubbish quality.

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

 

Cheers.
