Re: gopro hero 7 black

Hello @clwood. You may be able to change it post-process through editing applications but there is no setting on the camera that will allow such a change. The change in aspect ratio from 4:3 to 16:9 (or 16:9 to 4:3) can only be done for recordings. There is more information here regarding photo dimensions for the HERO7 camera.

Re: gopro hero 7 black

What I don’t understand is how well my Hero 7 performs well in low light while obviously having a small sensor and other bigger cameras with larger sensors don’t do as well?
