    Motion blurred Video - contour +2

    Hey everybody,
    i own a Contour +2 with the latest firmware.
    Sadly my recordings are often motion blurred. In 1080p as well as in 720p60. Especially in situations with indirect sunlight (biking in forest).


    Do you have any recommendations for the settings or shooting setup to get better results.
    Is it possible to control the shutter speed in any way? Maybe with a hacked firmware.

    Thanx a lot for the support
    greetings
    Pascal

    You could try using 30 fps instead of 60 fps. It might help....the camera would have twice as much time to render each frame.

    Thank you for this tip. I will try it next time. Hopefully the cam will really use the time to render a improved image.

    adjust the light setting to the lighting you'll be riding in.

    60FPS should be fine.. I find it cleaner on mine (older HD 1080 unit)
    set the image quality to high..

    try a faster card.. (probably not the problem but I found a faster card give cleaner image and if nothing else downloads to the computer faster)
