Only one time lapse interval is available: 1 photo / 0.5 Sec

I have the 2018 Hero and am trying to set up a photo time lapse. I've done it in the past and had no problems, but when I try now, the only interval option I'm given is 1 photo / 0.5 Sec. I've confirmed I'm in photo time lapse, not vidoe. I've tried updating the firmware through Quik but it fails, I've tried resetting the camera to factory defaults but I still only have that one interval option. Am I missing something?

Hi @royalshore54741,

With HERO 2018 camera, you can setup Time Lapse Photo with only 1 Photo / 0.5 Sec. interval. You can find more details about this on Page 42 of your camera's Product Manual.

Kind Regards,

 

Ann

Re: Only one time lapse interval is available: 1 photo / 0.5 Sec

Thanks Ann...I guess I should have read the manual. :) This must be the first time I've used this GoPro for a timelapse. I just looked at an older model we have and it gave me much more options (all the way up to 60 seconds between photos). I'm kind of disappointed I can't do intervals longer than .5 seconds on this camera though. I have a 128GB card in there which means I can only get 6-7 hours of time lapse footage instead of days I could get on my older models. Is this a limitation on the newer models too?

 

Thanks again.

Re: Only one time lapse interval is available: 1 photo / 0.5 Sec

HERO5 Black, HERO6 Black and HERO7 Black have all the options available to them. The entry level cameras like the HERO (2018), HERO7 Silver and HERO7 White are all limited. You can find out more about each camera by reading through their manuals here https://gopro.com/help/productmanuals
