Very Grainy Video In Daylight

Hey guys, new to the forum, but I've been searching online for any help on this topic. I've got a GoPro Hero 3 Black edition, but seem to be getting super grainy videos.

Little bit of background, I film in 720p, 60hz, Protune off, so that the footage will run smoothly on my computer. Although I expect to get lower quality than 1080, it still doesn't seem HD.

I recently made an edit of a camping treat some friends and I took and although it was overcast, it was in the middle of the day and was plenty bright out it seemed. Any ideas?

Sytek, welcome to the forum,

Please see my notes and provide answers to the questions I've just asked. Perhaps then we will have the information we need.

1. Do you mean 60FPS instead of 60hz?

2. Protune off, does this mean you were filming RAW?

3. Where are you viewing your videos? (Gopro Studios? A third party editor? Perhaps HDMI to your direct to the TV, viewing in the Gopro App? Or, maybe you uploaded to Youtube and they seem grainy? Where are you viewing your video)?

4. When you chose your settings did you leave the spot meter on or off? What was the white balance set at? and what editor did you use?

5. Did you update your camera's firmware?

Please look at your settings and tells us what they are in your next post (assuming you haven't changed them).

Thanks




Cheers,
Charlie

The More you use your camera, the more you will learn it, Grain can come from poor lighting. Since your post....

Change lighting change location change the time of day.

you FPS is higher, it may cancel low level lighting. a lot can b e said SO what I do is leave the cam set at HD1080P30fps and make sure I got light.
