Gopro 8 Black continuous photo

[ Edited ]
My GoPro 5 unfortunately got stolen yesterday, so today I went out and got the GoPro 8 Black to continue my work. I need it to take a photo every few seconds and save it as a raw/gpr, like I did with 5. I can't seem to find this option alternative solutions are more than welcome.

Re: Gopro 8 Black continuous photo

For the GoPro Hero 8, Raw mode is available.

 

In Photo mode, RAW Format is available for Photo, Burst, Night,
Time Lapse Photo, and Night Lapse Photo, with these conditions
and exceptions:
• SuperPhoto must be off.
• Digital lenses must be set to Wide.
• Zoom must be off.
• RAW Format is not available for capturing continuous photos.
• For Time Lapse photo, the Interval must be at least 5 seconds.
• For Night Lapse photo, the Shutter setting must be at least 5
seconds.

Re: Gopro 8 Black continuous photo

Thanks for your quick answer! So if I do Time Lapse photo for let's say 1 hour, I'll end up with 700+ raw photos, correct? Cause that's what I need it to do.

Re: Gopro 8 Black continuous photo

That should be about right, I think it works out at 720 photo's but who's counting.....   :P

 

Of course you can change that amount, it's just that if you go below the 5 second interval that RAW won't be available.  However you can increase the interval to 10 or 15 seconds etc.

Re: Gopro 8 Black continuous photo

720 falls within the 700+ range, but so does 7.000.000. Anyway, life saver! I need as many workable photos as I can so 5 secs is perfect. Not an improvement over the Gopro 5 though..

Re: Gopro 8 Black continuous photo

Just tested it out, seems to work perfectly! Thanks! For anyone else trying to figure it out, here's what to do:

 

Press the "Mode" button on the side of the camera and navigate to "TIME LAPSE".

Touch "Time Lapse" at the bottom center of the screen.

Touch the edit option to the right of "Time Lapse" in the middle.

Set

- "Interval" to "5s"

- "Format" to "Photo"

- "Output" to "RAW"
