Re: Shutter Speed changing to longer than 5 sec

Daniel, that's the amended version... They went and changed it to that after the fact of the misrepentation. Really? That all you have? Com'on man... You sure you dont work for GoPro?

Re: Shutter Speed changing to longer than 5 sec

Hero 5 Session Does not have a setting for longer than a 5 sec shutter speed.  Just got off the phone with tech support to confirm.

Re: Shutter Speed changing to longer than 5 sec

Thanks for the update @jakev1348
I completely understand the confusion some people had/have because the table showing the optimum shutter speeds for different settings does show longer shutters. However, this is a universal table used for all GoPro cameras that have night photo/night laps capability.

As I posted above, the manual has never stated the Session5 as having the capability of a longer shutter than 5 Seconds. The image I posted above is from the original PDF that I downloaded when the camera was released. It is not an, " amended version" as was stated by another user.

Re: Shutter Speed changing to longer than 5 sec

Thanks @danielr15

 

yeah I was confused as well.  I've had the camera for about year now and this is the first time I was looking to experement with night lapse. The original manual that I downloaded showed longer shutter times.  Hopefully a firmware update in the near future will fix that.  Not sure why they would limit shutter speeds on this camera?  Maybe to get people to upgrade?

Re: Shutter Speed changing to longer than 5 sec

Hello GoPro users, do you have any news about firmware fix release for this issue? I would like to set the shutter time to 30s too, I have read about that in manual, but the settings in camera have dissapointed me a bit and then I've started to search the web and got here...
