Ep. #4 Low Light Test: Less Video Noise on GoPro 3+ Black

So I wanted to see if any mode had less grain/noise at low light. Not a very scientific test, but may have some validity.

It would make sense to me that the wide would be better than Narrow or Medium because it uses the whole sensor.
I'm not sure why 4K is so bad except that possibly it's being only 15fps could have something to do with it. I am not really sure. I did a second test and had the same results at that size.

To me it seems as if 1080 Wide had the less noise out of all of them.

Post your thoughts. I will run another test some other time in a much darker room, but this room was pretty dark as you will see before the GoPro adjusts. I will also test protune settings as well in future, this is just my first test .
