Cons: cant get info which gopro was used for the skiing demo video. this shows clear permanent stitching errors on the cables of the skilift. and skiing downhill you see the different auto WB values are visible in different toned snow. (Is the Gopro3 Black not advertised to allow manual WB settings?)
Yes - the Black does have manual WB settings. It is extremely confusing though based on the text of the manual (note the apparently contradictory bolded statements):
"White Balance adjusts the overall color tone of videos. White Balance will
only be available if Protune mode is turned on
. The default White Balance
setting is Auto. When capturing in any White Balance setting other than
Auto, you may need to color correct your video with an editing program to
achieve your desired color. Only use a non-Auto White Balance setting if
you are an advanced user.
Consider manually setting WhiteBalance to the following settings
when operating in the following conditions:
Incandescent or sunrise/sunset lighting 3000K
Daylight or sunlit shooting 5500K
Cool white fluorescent skylight lighting 6500K
Industry standard optimized color Cam RAW
Cam RAW (Camera RAW)
The HERO3 camera can record Video in Protune mode in Cam RAW. GoPro
Cam RAW mode yields a minimally processed data file direct from the image
sensor that allows for more precise adjustments to be made in post-process.
Working in this mode takes full advantage of the image sensorâ€™s capabilities.
Pro tip:Protune uses Auto White Balance and will override
any non-Auto White Balance setting.
Can't get my head around that at all!
