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
Shoot video at night with the GoPro like a pro!
Now that the new GoPro Hero 9 Black can take 20MP still photos, I thought it is a good idea to go over my recommended photo settings. I cover the different output formats – standard, HDR, and SuperPhoto. I also go over the ProTune settings, explaining what they mean and how to use them. Just in case you are interested in the Adobe Lightroom presets that I use, you can get them here: https://sellfy.com/rehaalev. Have fun shooting photos with your new GoPro!
