Hero 5 Black FOV and Resolution

[ New ]

I was told by a salesman that if I change the FOV out of wide for photos or videos, it will have a negative impact on the quality of the pictures or videos. I personally think the pictures look like garbage, even when compared to my phone, but I would hate to degrade the quality of my videos if I switch to liniar instead of wide.

Hey @niceriver31540 Sorry to hear that.

Lets see if I can help make your videos 5x better!

So first off Linear mode crops the videos this is best when not used in low-light.

For the best picture, try 1080p @30fps and enable Portune this is a advance GoPro setting.

With protune I can give a list of setting but most of that should be on Auto.

The take a video outside and let me know how it looks.
