Once I've mounted my Go Pro Hero 4 to the 3 way selfie stick, how do I snap a photo?

Re: how to take a picture with the 3 way selfie stickselfie

Hello,

 

You have a few options here.

 

Option 1: Grabbing stills from video. Set the GoPro to record at the highest resolution possible. The FPS really doesn't matter. Next, start recording. After a few seconds ( 10-15 is ideal), stop recording. You shoud now have a nice selection of frames to choose from in your editing software to save as a still.

 

Option 2: Using Burst mode. Go into Burst mode and set the GoPro to shoot for the longest duration possible (ideally 30 pictures for 6 seconds). Start the burst, and immediatly hold up the 3-Way to take a photo. I would recommend doing this twice to ensure you have a good shot.

 

Option 3: Buying a remote. That is pretty self-explanatory. Here is a good one to use. https://shop.gopro.com/International/accessories-2/smart-remote/ARMTE-002.html

 

Let me know if you need clarification on any of these. Happy shooting!

You can use the Capture app with your phone to take photos or set your camera to timelapse mode.

Time laps mode is the easiest method. Just set the internal for 0.5 or 1 second. Burst mode works, but you end up with many more unable photos.
