BEST Low Light Settings for the GoPro Hero 9 Black

GoPros aren’t renowned for their low light capabilities, however with the right settings, the results can be pleasing. In this GoPro low light tutorial, I go over all relevant settings, like shutter speed, ISO, and picture profiles. I explain what they mean and how to use them.

For the very best results you want to keep your ISO as low as possible, use a low framerate and low shutter speed. The settings that I usually use are:

  • Resolution/FPS: 4K/24p
  • Lens: Wide
  • Hypersmooth: On
  • Bit Rate: High
  • Shutter: 1/48
  • White Balance: Manual (3200k-4000k)
  • ISO Min: 100
  • ISO Max: 800
  • Sharpness: Low
  • Color: Flat
