how to record time lapse photo in raw

Hello,

 

I can't take RAW pictures in time lapse photo mode. I can see the RAW symbol but it stays gray and and can't change it. Why would GoPro make this visible if you can't change it anyway. And if you can change it, what are the settings it must be in so that I can turn it on. Please help! Thx!

Hello @bluedawn71018

 

Page 106 of the camera manual  details the conditions when Raw format is available for Time Lapse mode. This support article discusses more information on when Raw format can be utilized. Hope this helps. 

 

Best regards, 
Marius

Re: how to record time lapse photo in raw

if a word is there and is greyed out, it is that way for a reason.  when you learn the camera you'll find out what works and does not work.  raw will allow certain things to be used I  found out  linear or wide disables if raw changed

"When you learn a camera..."

 

That is what I am trying to figure out. I have tried everything. RAW option doesn't seem to bee available in timelapse mode. Ok fine, then don't put if there as greyed out or at least show the reason when it does work. Now you have to try every combination possible and still no luck. Just say it doesn't work and it was just marketing.

 

Gopro? Anyone?
