Shutter speeds in time lapse photo - GoPro Session 5

[ New ]

Anyone got any detail regarding the shutter speeds for GoPro Session 5 in the following modes:

- TL-PH (Time-Lapse Photo) and 

- TL-NT (Time-Lapse Night Time)

There seems to be no settings for shutter speed in Pro tune in time lapse photo (TL-PH) whatsoever, and in time lapse night time mode (TL-NT) there are two options settable from the app -  2s and 5s - but no "auto" shutter option.

 

This must be a bug surely?

@dizzyfishuk, the HERO5 Session is limited in its exposure time to 2 or 5 seconds. You can set "Auto" for the Night Photo on HERO5 Session:

  1. Shift to Photo mode
  2. Cycle through the options when highlighted on "Photo" until you can select "Night"
  3. Cycle through the options under "Auto" to select your option (2s or 5s)

Thanks fot the reply @aenriquez.... are you saying there is an "auto" shutter option available from the camera menu in night time photo mode (and this auto setting is not available from the app), or have I just misunderstood your reply?

@dizzyfishuk, sorry for the confusion. The available exposure time or Shutter Speed values for the Night Photo on HERO5 Session are 2s and 5s only.
