HERO7 Silver Video Settings?

Hello,
I just got the GoPro HERO7 Silver today. I set everything up and recorded, and the final footage looked like a much lower resolution than the set 4k 30fps. I tried again with the 1440p 60fps option, and it also did not look very good. I'm sure the resolution would be better if it was daytime, but I wanted to see if I could change some settings. I know a lot of previous models had video settings such as ProTune, and had options to change white balance, ISO min, ISO max, sharpness, color settings, etc... I could not locate any video settings at all on the GoPro itself, so I went to the GoPro app's video settings, and there was none of these settings. I looked this up and all of the HERO7 Black settings had these options, and on these videos I saw the HERO7 Black had easily-accessible video settings on the GoPro itself. Is there a way to get these settings for the Silver, or does it just not come with them?

Any help is appreciated,
Thanks!

Re: HERO7 Silver Video Settings?

Hi @fireypeak45505,

 

The HERO7 Silver camera is a simplified version of HERO7 cameras -- just grab it and go for it. This camera is built with 4K and 1440P resolutions and Protune isn't a feature. That being said, the camera will automatically set the best video setting depending on the environment and lighting condition.

 

You can find more information about the HERO7 cameras' features here.

 

Here's also the link to the HERO7 Silver camera's Product Manual to help you get started.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Ann

Re: HERO7 Silver Video Settings?

GoPro cameras need good bright light. It's an action camera with a small sensor and wide angle lens. I'm sure your media will look much better when used in the proper setting.
