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!
Here comes my second Adobe Lightroom presets pack! I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did creating it. These Lightroom presets will work great with all your winter photos (snowy landscapes, winter sports). I made sure that all these presets work perfectly with your GoPro, but they will also work with photos shot with your other cameras.

I bought the Sony a7III and I couldn’t be happier!
The Sony a6500, which I used for the last year, is still a great camera. I will keep it as a back-up camera. However, when it comes to slow-motion and low light, the a6500 isn’t performing as good as I was hoping it would. I was also missing the full-frame look in my photos that I fell in love with back in the days when I was shooting with the Canon 5D.
As a hybrid shooter, the Sony a7III ticks all the boxes. And for US$2000 it is simply the best camera on the market. Watch my review for more details of the camera and how it performs against the Sony a6500.
Over the last 2 years I have been shooting with the Panasonic GH4. Recently I bought a Panasonic G85, which I used as a secondary camera. After I sold the Panasonic GH4, I realized that I need a two camera setup.
I immediately thought about the Panasonic LX10 – a poketable 4K shooter that got praised as an ultimate vlogging camera. On paper the camera looked promising, so I picked one up and tested it thoroughly on a trip to the Angkor temples in Siem Reap in Cambodia.
The camera offers some great features, however, it falls short of expectations in some crucial aspects; mainly the lack of an ND filter. The lens of the Panasonic LX10 only offers an aperture of up to 11. With my other lenses I can dial up the aperture to 22, which allows me to get the exposure right. In order to get an ND filter on the Panasonic LX10 you have two options available: the Magfilter Adapter, or the Lensmate Quick-Change Adapter. Let me show you how it works.
Now with the camera having an ND filter as well as a windscreen, let me demonstrate how to best setup the Panasonic LX10 for shooting video. With the right settings, the shortcomings of the camera – especially the weak auto-focus – won’t be so much of a problem for filmmaking and vlogging.
With some simple changes and the right setup, you can make the Panasonic LX10 a serious video shooter. Perfect for anyone who wants to start out with YouTube, or as a secondary camera for your video setup.
The GoPro HERO5 Black now enables users to shoot RAW photo. Here are the best settings for shooting RAW photos with your GoPro. I also walk you through a basic workflow in Adobe Lightroom. You guys should be able to pick it up from there. Hope you enjoy!
Sometimes I need to travel light, but still want to shoot great video. This is my lightweight travel video setup that I can take with me anywhere, yet doesn’t slow me down on my adventures.
