dream3 There you go:

If you guys could test yours and post some feedback it would be awesome I really wanna be sure that my unit is faulty before paying lots of cash to ship it back to the US.

dream3 Yeah I'll try to post the video.

But I didnt get whats the point on doing that 5 secs thing with the lens cover.

And yes, Im using a 32gb sandisk. But as I said, it flicker specifically with the auto low-light option on, meaning it has to do with FPS. If I shoot in normal bright conditions at 60 FPS, I got no flickering at all.

Fish Welcome, would you mind posting some video up showing your issue so others can get an idea about the GPH3+.

Hoping they have an answer for you. one trick about tricking the sensor is to start the cam with a lens cover on for 5 seconds and remove to have the video ISO and Exposure started, the first frame is key .

Check settings and see if you are on the correct NTSC or PAL, , some cams will have a flicker 50hz or 60 HZ which the gopro does not

Ifti The gopro shouldn't flicker etc at all.
Have you tried viewing the video back on another computer at all?
Also are you using a card from GoPros recommended list?

60 FPS auto low-light causes sceen to flash/blink!


I'm new to the gopro world so I'm not sure if this is actually a flaw or if it's intended.

When I have both 60 FPS and auto low-light set, then screen flickers/flashes when the light conditions change from bright to dark.

I know that auto low-light is supposed to cut down the FPS in half but I didn't think it would be so easy to notice it. I can literally see the screen going black for a millisecond.

Is that supposed to happen? If so, do you guys still use 60 FPS with low-light on?

ps: Im using touch backpack by the way.
