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.
I am LOVING my new Sony RX0 II, but in order to get the most out of your new little camera, you would want to tweak the settings slightly. In this video I am going through how I setup the Sony RX0 II for filmmaking. Let me know, if you have any suggestions!
You want to give your live stream a professional cinematic, filmic look? No problem, I’ve got you covered. I created a set of filmic LUTs for OBS Studio and this video explains how to set up OBS Studio. Have fun!
Photography/Cinematography filters are glass elements that get typically screwed onto the front of the camera lens. While some use filters to simply protect the front elements of the lens, there are a variety of filters available that allow for artistic control over the photo or video. Using filters is common among DSLR/mirrorless shooters, however, filters can be easily used for shooting with your GoPro also. They are a lot of fun!
In this video I explain how to easily attach a filter to your GoPro. Further below you’ll find an outline of what the different filters do and how they are being typically used.
Primarily used for protecting the lens. However UV filters can help with:
- Boost contrast when shooting outdoors
- Removes UV light and blue cast in very bright sun light
Reduces the polarization effect caused by sunlight:
- Enhances the color of the sky
- Eliminates the reflection visible in water/glass
Blocks light, so that less light passes through the lens reaching the sensor:
- Allows for creative control over the shutter speed
- Allows for maintaining a 180 angle shutter speed in bright sun light for video
Adds artistic effects to photos/video:
- Orange: to intensify the orange and red of a sunset
- Blue: to intensify ocean or blue sky
- Grey: to intensify/add drama to a cloudy sky

How to best setup the Sony a7III for filmmaking you ask? Well, here you go! After I spent one week with the a7III, testing all its features, I am finally done setting it up for shooting video. Watch the video in which I go through most of the menu and explain the different settings and why I setup the camera the way I did. Take it as a starting point and tweak your setup further to your linking. Have fun!
These are my favorite settings for shooting video with my Sony a6500. If you want to get cinematic looking footage without the need for color grading your footage extensively, try setting up your camera like I did.
