Let us now if the firmware helped any.
The firmware did the trick, but now the sad part. I bailed on a crack attack and the camera skipped across the concrete, it is a GoPro, I know, but now I have a nick and it shows as a little smudge. :/ Don't know if I should buy the lens replacement or not.



Idk if you guys can see it, but it on the back of his leg. It shows up every once and a while against darker backgrounds.

GoPro Lens Replacement Kit GLK5170 B&H Photo Video

Doty - No I mean really low light like one light on in a room at night what the gopro always has had problems with. I know it is better now with dusk and early light, I guess unless my updated did not work.

seems like something with the auto exposure, my friend actually just got one today. i'll do a test real fast and see if it's just yours or with all of them.
edit: nevermind, saw the post about the firmware.
doty, i wouldn't have noticed the smudge if you didn't point it out. i think you would be fine, i personally am a perfectionist and wouldn't let that go. if you can live with it you're fine.

yeah from what I am tracking all gopros have a problem with this the hero2 is better but it is no 5D canon with 1500 glass on it lol. Only reason I say this is cause I do night jumping (skydiving) and has some problems with low light.

ah thanks for the link also, I am a perfectionist, too seeing as I am mainly a filmer/editor trying to get better haha. I really film others and edit it. Might as well buy it.

Edit: Ordered. TOO MUCH OF A PERFECTIONIST. :P

i just ordered the LCD bacpac and the wrist mount. has anyone used either of these? im skeptical about how well the write mount will perform because when i ride my arms are usually near my waist
seems like i would have to make it a point to hold the camera at a particular angle and this would get uncomfortable at some point
