Which model would be best suited for northern lights timelapse?

[ New ]
Hey guys.

Hoping for some advice. Is there a GoPro model which would be suitable for unsupervised overnight timelapse photography in cold conditions? For context, this would be for shooting northern lights in Iceland (0 to -15c common) I’m looking for the following spec and haven’t been able to find a model using the camera comparison tools found on the web.

Can be plugged into an external power supply while shooting photos.
Has the widest FOV (capturing as much sky as possible in a single shot).
Lower temperature limit? (Seems to be anecdotal data available, though nothing solid).
Protune to adjust exposure, ISO, shutter speed.
Automatic transfer to cloud or local host.
Waterproof.

Thanks in advance!

-Nick

Hi @nickdawes28,

 

It would be best to use HERO7 For that. 

 

Since you'll have a full manual control on the camera unlike the 2 new models which is full auto.
