Question GoPro Hero 2 Grainy?! Help please!



Does anyone else have or had this problem? You can see it especially in the clouds and things.

Is it by chance because of the overcast?

Auto exposure needs a patch/update?

Looks normal to me although I have the hd hero 1. You are pointing it directly at the sun (overexposing), so to expose the dark areas correctly, it gets grainy.

Is that a still from a vid or a picture?

that could also lessen the quality. I have noticed stills comes out worse than actual photos.

Let us now if the firmware helped any.

As this is a GoPro thread, I'll just hijack and ask a quick question.

I'm looking to get a GoPro and can't decide between the Hero or Hero2. I plan on shooting in 720 at 60 FPS, regardless of which one I get. I don't have much interest in 1080, as my computer would probably self destruct if I tried to load the video.

Are the features of the Hero2 justifiable if I'm not shooting in 1080? I've read and seen some of the upgrades, but I'm hoping for feedback from someone who has owned both.

Thanks in advance.
