The picture above, the ridgeline on the left of the pic seem to have a black edge, where as the ridgeline on the Right appear more natural.

Or is it just me ?

Does it actually record at 4K? I don't mean is it 4K quality, I mean when you configure it for 4K does it even record a usable file?
There are many brands of cameras very similar to this one, they are often sold quite cheap on Amazon UK lightning deals. I have a couple, I wasn't expecting high quality, but I was at least expecting them to record something when configured to 4K. They pretend to record, but when you play back the image is broken up, or you only get a few frames per second. I even bought new, fast cards to see if they was the problem. That didn't help.

Looks like it has the edges marked dark.
On the left, there's cloud cover so it makes the edges darker and on the right, there is darker edge but it's bluish so doesn't show as much.
