Is their no continuous shooting mode in night lapse on the hero 7 black?

I’ve recently upgraded from the hero 4 silver and on that when taking night lapse photos I could choose the length of time to have the shutter open and then choose continuous photo which was great for getting good photos at a firework display, I don’t see the option to do a continuous shot photo on the hero 7 black though, the guides for every camera up to the 7 seems to have this feature so unsure why the 7 would of removed it? If I choose the lowest option on the 7 I’ll basically miss half of the display.

Re: Is their no continuous shooting mode in night lapse on the hero 7 black?

 

Let me check that @spiderwal,

 

Check the interval option. 

Mine is shooting continuously and I just set it to auto. 

 

Let's say I want to let my shutter open for 5 sec and shoot right after taking photo I set the interval to auto. 

And will press the shutter button again to stop

Hi @spiderwal,

 

There is. 

 

You can set it on interval and shutter.

Re: Is their no continuous shooting mode in night lapse on the hero 7 black?

I can set the shutter to the seconds I want but the interval has no continuous option like all previous cameras, if I do a 2 second shutter I can only have a 4 second interval as the lowest, if I have a 5 second shutter I can only have a 10 second interval as the lowest, I want to do like I did with the hero 4 where you set it at continuous interval and as soon as one photo finishes it starts taking the next, not have to wait another 10 seconds for it to start as I’ll be missing half the display that way, the guides for the cameras all the way up to the 6 have the continuous interval but the 7 doesn’t seem to have it

Re: Is their no continuous shooting mode in night lapse on the hero 7 black?

Ah ok, thanks for that @graytree76514 on all other models it’s called continuous so it’s obvious what it means, with it saying auto I thought it would decide itself and maybe not continuously take them, I want to press to start the recording and then again at the end of the display so by the sounds of what you are saying I need it on auto.

 

thanks for the help.

Yup @spiderwal,

 

Please try to check other intervals as well so that you can fully customize it. 

I'm satisfied with the auto function though.
