I have recently taken my Hero 4 Silver on a scuba diving trip, and experimented with different FOV's and manual White Balance settings to see what worked best when compared side by side. Unsurprisingly, I cannot remember which FOV/WB combination were used on which of the videos, but assumed this information for each file would be readily available within the GoPro studio app, especially seeing as information such as the resolution, frame rate etc is very easy to find. But I can't seem to find where that information is! Can anyone help please? Surely that information must be available somewhere?

Hi - thanks for the reply, Yes, I'm used to seeing a lot of metadata with still images so I'm not so familiar with what video will tell you. That's really interesting that using narrow gives you a lower image quality; I took some footage of a nudibranch (tiny little sea slug) using the narrow FOV and couldn't work out why the IQ really wasn't all that good - I assumed it was particles in the water, lower than optimum light levels etc etc - but perhaps it's because I was using the narrow setting then? It never occurred to me how the GoPro achieved the narrow FOV as the physical lens is clearly a wide angle lens, so it works by just cropping the centre of the image then?
