camera settings


Just got my Go Pro 5 a few weeks back and was wondering what the best settings were for outdoor and indoor shots.

Re: camera settings

@supercreek68355 - I always suggest just experimenting. A lot of this is going to depend on personal preference and what you plan to use the videos and photos for. For example, if you just want something to share on Facebook or Instagram, shooting in 1080 is going to give you great shots while keeping your file sizes manageable. If you want higher quality shots to share on YouTube, Vimeo, or other channels, bumping up the resolution would be a good option.


My everyday setting is 2.7K at 60fps in the Linear field of view. I'm looking forward to seeing what others on here use too.


Have fun with your HERO5.
