The GoPro isn’t the ideal low light camera. There are better alternatives out there, if shooting video at night is your thing. However, given the right settings, the results with the GoPro HERO 8 Black can be decent. In this video I go over my recommended setting for shooting in low light and show you some test clips as well.

Just in case you are interested in more than 30 minutes of GoPro Hero 8 Black test footage, I got you covered. All clips are unedited footage straight from the camera. Happy low light shooting.

I am sure most of you use the GoPro for shooting videos only. However, the GoPro is a capable camera and with the right setting it can take amazing photos. In this video I go through my preferred photo settings and also show the difference between Standard, HDR, SuperPhoto, and RAW output formats.

Let me introduce the Sony RX0 II Vlogging Setup with the UURig C-RX0 II Vlogging Case, so you get the most out of your little camera. It’s a perfect protective cage for the Sony RX0 II with 37mm thread adapter to mount an ND filter and a cold shoe mount to attach an external microphone. Here are the links to all the gear I used for this setup.

I couldn’t resist buying the Sony RX0 II to compliment my Sony Alpha setup – the a7III and a6500. I wanted a small waterproof camera that I could abuse to get shots that I couldn’t get with my larger Sony cameras. While I have been using my GoPro for these type of shooing scenarios, mixing footage was always a hassle. Check out the video for my in-depth review. Is it perfect? No! Would I buy it again? Absolutely!

Live streaming has become immensely popular over the years. Whether Facebook, YouTube, Periscope, Twitch – there are plenty of options for your online live show. The technical aspect of building a live streaming setup can be intimidating, however, GoPro makes it very easy with its GoPro App. Let me show you how it works.

Just in case you want to have a bit more options and flexibility, you can capture the live feed of your camera’s HDMI out with a inexpensive capture card (Elgato CamLink 4K, BlackMagic UltraStudio MiniRecorder) and use OBS Studio on your PC or Mac.

As you can tell, live streaming isn’t complicated and camera companies like GoPro make it very easy to share your story in the moment with either family, friends, or even a wider audience on YouTube and Facebook.

How To Live Stream with GoPro

While I enjoy shooting with my Sony cameras, the fact that Sony never offered a flip-out screen with their higher-end mirrorless lineup is frustrating. So one either has to live with that, or invest in an on-camera monitor. There are many different external camera monitors available nowadays, in a wide range of features and sizes. Watch my review of the PortKeys LH5 HDR to learn why I love this field monitor so much!

I have been searching for an affordable portable motorized camera slider for quite some time now. Two reasons. First of all working with a slider isn’t easy. It takes a lot of practice and it can be time consuming to get a smooth shot. Secondly, a motorized slider allows me to create panning shot without having to have a second person supporting me. I can be in front of the camera while the slider does its thing.

While there are several sliders out there, most are quite expensive. The SliderMini from SMARTTA however fits the bill. Please check out my review, and if you are interested in picking up one yourself, please use this link here:  https://igg.me/at/SliderMini/x/19569642
