Consider where the camera is placed - if it's near the microphone, it's normal to hear a darkened tone.
Consider also the cable used: if it's long and if there's 1 or 1,5 nanofarad of capacitance between the guitar and amp, don't wonder why it sounds as if the tone pot was rolled back.
Just my 2 cents.
