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

Shoot video at night with the GoPro like a pro!

GoPro HERO 8 Black Low Light Settings

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.
