Newbie with Gopro hero 5.. help pls

Hi there mates.

Greetings from Greece .

As title said I am new with the gopro  , I am very happy but I am in a real need of your help.

 

1)First of all , I am an owner of a Samsung Evo+ U1 SD card.  This one that I will post in the image below.

Does  this fits ok with my new camera or I should buy a new one , and if yes which one ?

 

2)Second question is that I want to ask about video settings.

Should you please give me a guide how to set my video settings for better results ? I am not very happy with the results on default mode.

please give me the recommended resolution , FPS etc 

 

Thanks a lot and thanks 🙏

Re: Newbie with Gopro hero 5.. help pls

Well when I asked about settings it was because I am not really happy about the quality of the videos.

photos are just perfect but videos are not that outstanding that everyone is talking about.

any reason why ? Could this be a problem of sd card or what ?

i searched the web and lot of ppl complaining about the same “problem”

 

i am playing the videos from the GoPro app.

Re: Newbie with Gopro hero 5.. help pls

The SD card you are using may work fine but will be more likely to cause you issues. For best performance, use a card from this list https://gopro.com/help/articles/Block/microSD-Card-Considerations

As far as getting the best shots, you will want to have Protune on, which will give you the highest quality.

For good understanding of your camera, I suggest reading all of Abe Kislevitz' articles. http://abekislevitz.com/?catid=11

Start with the basics, and then read the articles on the Hero4 and then progress to the Hero5.

Basics:
http://abekislevitz.com/gopro-getting-started/

Hero4:
http://abekislevitz.com/new-features-of-the-hero4/
http://abekislevitz.com/understanding-video-in-the-hero4/
http://abekislevitz.com/understanding-photos-in-the-hero4/

Hero5:
http://abekislevitz.com/gopro-hero5-black/
http://abekislevitz.com/video-settings-in-the-hero5-black/

Some of the information that is relevant to both cameras is not repeated in the Hero5 articles, so don't skip the Hero4. After reading the articles specific to theses two cameras, read some of his other GoPro articles as well.

Once you've done that, be sure to familiarize yourself with basic camera settings. You want to search and find articles related to ISO, shutter speed, fps (frame rates), white balance (kelvin temperatures) and exposure values.

One thing that might be holding you back from getting the best looking video is in your editing process. If you get an editor like DaVinci Resolve (free) or Adobe Premiere Pro (paid) you will be able to adjust the color, contrast, sharpness, lift, gain, and gamma to get the results your looking for. The first step; however, is using the correct settings in the camera. Abe's articles should get you started.

Please come back for clarifications or any other questions you might have.

Hope this helps.

Hello again and thanks for the response.

Acoording to all of those articles i am NOT doing anything bad ,I am Dslr owner , not on a pro level but i know some stuff about ISO etc .

I read everything u gave me and i want to really thank you.

 

I came outside , capture some videos but still.. My GoPro doesnt have that outstanding video that everyone is talking about and was a reason to buy it.

 

I believe that maybe its my SD card and i want to make it clear.

Took some photos and they are really good.

Took a 2k video on 60 and 30 fps and i got again not a clear image..why ?!

 

when i am looking the video in GoPros screen everything is fine and looks GREAT , when i am trying to play the videos in PC they suck.

Any idea why? I am using the original app to play the video as i said before

The SD card isn't the issue. Try watching the videos on VLC media player (free).

Upload a video to YouTube and post it here along with the camera settings. Include all Protune settings.

Re: Newbie with Gopro hero 5.. help pls

I said that maybe the SD card its the problem because i just used a program to check out the speeds of my card  and my numbers are really bad i think.

 

READING SPEED : 18.392 MB/s 

WRITING SPEED : 14.415 MB/s

 

Still not a problem for my issue mate?

 

I will use VLC tommorow because all my videos are delete cause of my nerves and i will try to upload it to Youtube so u can see that nothing is good with my camera :S
