GoPro Hero 7 Black Night Time Running

[ New ]

I just recently ordered the new GoPro Hero 7 Black as my first ever GoPro. While I am very excited to get my hands on the latest GoPro I have tried recording night time runs through the woods with my friends old GoPro Hero 3. Of course, the video came out horrendous with absolutely no lighting to support the camera aside from my headlamp.

I was wondering what I could do to help make my night time runs visible and enjoyable to watch, is there such thing as an under light or something I could easily make?

 

Anything to be able to see through pitch blackness would be incredible as some of my runs involve being miles deep into the woods with no light source other than me and my partner's headlamps.

 

Thanks!

Hi @abingham,

 

You can check some videos online.

 

There are third party lights that can be attached to the camera.

Not sure what is it or the brand. 

 

Changing the settings might help as well.

 

During low light it would be best to use lower FPS and Higher ISO but not more than 800 to reduce noise.
