    I'm not impressed with the 1080P superwide quality. It looks like a digitally stretched picture at a lower resolution. There is also a strange dark triangle in the upper LH corner in all recordings. Any idea what this is?

    A strange dark triangle in the upper left hand corner is really strange ;) Does it appear on all your SV videos?

    As it comes SV mode...IT IS a stretched video. Action Cam stretches 4:3 format to a 16:9 one. That's all it does. With poor optics and algorithms the result may not be satisfactory.

    I've only done limited testing of the SV mode. Will have to check if it impacts all resolutions.

    Like what @zigzager said about the SV.
    That's SV alright, the images are stretched and it's the only way to fill the 16:9 format using what 4:3 can see.

    That dark triangle, not sure what it is but it appears physical. Can you check if there's anything on the lens? if this is mounted on a waterproof case, also check that.
    I may be wrong, but that doesn't appear like a sensor artifact to me. Let us know if you see anything.

    I just tried 1080P superwide without the case. The dark triangle is not in the video. Possibly something with the case??

    Just tried with the case 1080P superwide setting. No triangle this time. Must have been something on the case lens that I could not see.
