wanted to try out the "superview" which is super wide in all directions: jury still out on that one, I think 960p at 100fps is better.
All the riding was filmed in "superview" at 48 fps at 1080p. If it is better i could switch to 720p at 100fps superview I guess.
Anyways when i got back to editing today, I noticed the quality of my video was horrible, blurry and horrible colors. I was thinking of sending the hero 3+ back.
then i thought what the hell, let me try turn off protune (on the previous model i always used protune all the riding video was protune on).
Anyways the difference is night and day, protune on SUCKS. Go to the end of my video and look at me filming boxes in my office to see what I mean, there is no need for me to tell you which one has protune off and which is on.
Will post video link in next post, its busy uploading to youtube.
Protune is 'flat' looking on purpose. the Protune feature enables your camera to leave out the 'processing' your camera does while recording video or pictures. By not processing the images on the camera it allows room for more information to be captured by the cam. Think RAW image format for DSLR's and high end cameras. This allows much more flexibility and clarity in post production (Adobe premiere, song vegas etc..) where you can dial the amount of color etc specifically to your taste. How do you think those GoPro official videos look so brilliant?
anyways, just food for thought, if you dont know how to do PP or color correction then shoot it out of protune.
can you process the 15 second video clip of my kitchen to look better than the non protune one? if so then i will stand corrected
Here you go...A (quick & dirty) processed version of your Protune footage (before and after) as well as the non Protune one
While the picture seems foggy on your side (is lens clean? Camera well inserted in enclosure?), you don't have the Sepia syndrom I'm experiencing (well maybe):
Did you use Protune AutoWB or Protune CamRaw WB ? If you didn't use CamRaw WB would you be kind enough to shoot a quick sequence with that setting so I can see if your device exhibits the same problem?
This is driving me nuts as I really need RAW WB for my underwater assignments and I'm trying to find out if I have a faulty camera or buggy firmware (or both).
