How can you take a long exposure shot in broad daylight?

HI everyone, I wanna make a timelapse with a longer exposure, in daylight. It seems like you can only set longer shutterspeeds in nightlapse mode, but if you do that in daylight, the photo turns out white. Anyone reckon there's an ND filter?. Is there any ND1000 filter for GoPro ?.

 

GoPro Hero 6 Black. Thanks!

had a few days away & got to use the nd1000 for some decent pics. I used it on the trusty Hero 4 Black, 2second exposure, 100iso, 5500k wb, 7mp medium fov

Re: How can you take a long exposure shot in broad daylight?

The darkest ND that I'm aware of is ND 32 but you might be able to find some on amazon or B&H that are darker. Polar Pro and Freewell have nice ND filters that either snap over the protective lens or replace the protective lens. If you want ot find darker, you just need to get an adapter that fits on the Hero 5/6 protective lens and has a 52mm ring for filters. Once you have the adapter you can use any 52mm ND filter.

Out of curiosity, why do you want such a long exposure?

Hi @kamalnor

 

You can go to any camera shop with and look for the darkest ND filter. 

There are a lot of suggestions on youtube though.

i bought an ND1000 filter off ebay, you still can't do anything in very bright daylight but it is surpringly dark

Re: How can you take a long exposure shot in broad daylight?

Thanks @danielr15 for the reply. Well.. I love to shoot waterfalls time lapse and it's impossible to do it during night time. I managed to shoot some beautiful waterfalls using my DSLR with ND1000 (pic attached)filter during daytime but I found that GoPro is more handy and easier to carry around. The problem here is I couldn't find ND1000 filter for GoPro like anywhere. Based on my experience with DSLR, the ND32 is not dark enough for the day time long exposure.

Hi @duanem8 thanks for the link, sadly it doesn't post to my country Malaysia.  Do you have any sample that I can see? the result of using ND1000 on gopro?

Thanks.

Beautiful picture. What size diameter is your DSLR ND filter? You can purchase adapter rings for the GoPro to allow you to use the same ND filter.

Re: How can you take a long exposure shot in broad daylight?

i'm afraid I haven't actually got around using the filter for any pics yet, need to go & find some waterfalls etc

 

what GoPro is it you've got, i've got 52mm adaptors for

  • Hero 3/3+/4 direct onto GoPro lens
  • Hero 3/3+/4 waterproof casing
  • GoPro Session in frame
  • Hero 5/6 Black 

so you've got plenty of options available
