I have the Go Pro Hero 7. I am videoing my sons soccer games and the video looks very far away.

Re: I have the Go Pro Hero 7. I am videoing my sons soccer games and the video looks very far away.

Sounds like you are Brand new to gopro the camera.  so please do take the time to understand hteFOV (field of View)

you have Super view, wide, Linear and crop/zoom.  cropzoom used to be a narrow FOV

 

 so if you want to capture a closer shot you must learn to use a closer field of view like Linear and then add some zoom on. Another way would be to shoot at a higherresolution and crop and zoom in in post  about 30% so no loss of quality.

 

Also it be helpful to understand what settings you also shot in   More or less that is the trademark of hte gopro a fisheye wide angle look.
