Filming through the Night with a hero 4 Silver

I have a question for those of you who are more accustomed with a GoPro than I am. 

 

I have a Hero 4 silver, I am wanting to monitor how I sleep for a my final year in Art School, Is there any way of filming through the night with the go pro that I have?

 

Thanks, any suggestions would be appreciated!

Hi @harrietc824,

 

How do you set up your room before you sleep?

 

If it's too dark GoPro won't be the best option for that. 

But if you have a dim light or with lights on you can set your camera to record in 24FPS and 800 ISO

 

Regards,

Re: Filming through the Night with a hero 4 Silver

gopro is not the best camera with very lil light so if you really want to  capture you're gonna have to like said have light on the object. you cna simply figure that out by recording a sample good luck

Re: Filming through the Night with a hero 4 Silver

Does it need to be a continuous video or will a time lapse work? If you can do time lapse, your camera can capture very good night lapse.

Re: Filming through the Night with a hero 4 Silver

I preferably would like to make a full video but time lapse could also work. Do you think I can live stream it to my laptop and use quick time screen recording?
