Hey All, I've noticed poorer quality-color quality etc. when importing my Hero 5 videos via micro SD card and adapter vs. what I see on the Micro SD card when looking at videos on the card. The quality difference is noticed after I import to Final Cut Pro. any ideas? is it better to connect via the USB plugged into the camera? Thx!!!

How do you look at videos on the card? Do you use the same media player or application like Quik for desktop? Basically, importing the GoPro files using an SD card adapter should not cause a difference in quality with importing the files directly from the camera through the USB cable connection. There might be a difference in the speed of transfer though as this thread discusses.
Do you also notice any difference when playing back the files using other device or media player? Does the resolution setting matter? A sample footage will help. Will you be able to post one? Hope to hear back from you.

What are you computer specs?
After rendering and exporting the video, how does it look?
What are your render settings?
What resolution/frame rate are you recording in?
The files that you have moved to your computer, can you play them with VSDC or other media player (not an editor)? How do they look?

HI Marius, sorry for the delayed response,,, here is a sample of the 2 images. the one on the bottom is after I imported from my Hero5 to GoPro Quik software. Let me know if you need other info
My computer is a 2017 Retina 5K iMac so I don't think it should be an issue (hopefully not:)
Image comparison (top is after importing. bottom is in GoPro Quik):
