This is my first BlogPost so be easy on me :-P

I am comparing recordings with the "new" AW/AE lock feature turned on and off, but first, a little "background info"

After looking for a second camera (the GoPro Hero3 Black Edition serves me well but I did not want to spend the same amount of money again^^) I decided to test the Mobius with the Lens C

+ FOW is insane but nice
+ Form factor is nice
+ Weight is lower compared to the GPH3B.

- no 1080p60 recording (what youtube now supports)
- less dynamic range than the GoPro

The plan was to get rid of the all black shadows (by sacrificing a bit of the highlights) since that is what I hate the most about mobius footage.

I tried different settings for getting an, in my eye, more appealing to watch mini quad racing video buy trying to put the available dynamic range to capture what I want and not what I don't need^^

Settings are as shown here, but Exposure set to +80 and Contrast to -15:

As a side note, to unlock the AE and AW lock feature you most likely need to update your firmware, I am using 2.33 as of right now.
