Posted November 16, 2018 10:38:56A new generation of GoPro cameras have come out with a host of exciting features, and with good reason: They’re cheap, feature high-resolution video, and can capture high-quality footage.
That’s not to say you shouldn’t shoot video, but you should be wary of shooting video with GoPro cameras.
Here’s how to make sure your videos are professional and get the most out of them.1.
Don’t use an external flash.
It can add a lot of noise and flare.
If you have a small-sized camera, it’s probably better to use a high-res flash, as the camera will be able to capture more light and it won’t create that many unnecessary distractions.2.
Don,t use a flash for a long time.
A GoPro camera can take about 2 minutes to get ready to shoot.
That means you should make sure it’s ready for filming.
If your video is being shot on a tripod, you may need to remove the flash a bit so it doesn’t come off during the long take.3.
Use a tripod.
It’s best to use something that’s relatively stable, like a tripod arm, as you’ll have more control over the movement of the camera during long takes.
You can even use a GoPro camera on a table, if you can get your hands on one.4.
Keep it clean.
You want your footage to look professional, but there’s nothing worse than using your camera to take a quick photo while your daughter is running around outside.
Use it responsibly and make sure to take care of it.5.
Use the right lighting.
The more bright the light source, the better.
Try to use natural light, or an angle of light with a slight bend in the light.
For example, if your camera is mounted to a tripod with a very bright light source and you’re using a tripod that has a fairly dark base, it can look weird to have a tripod light on your camera while you’re running around.
If the light is a little dim, you can adjust the camera to give the footage a more natural look.6.
Use your GoPro camera’s built-in HDR mode.
If a GoPro is set up with an HDR mode that you can turn on, it will show you a preview of your video before you shoot.
You’ll see the light intensities for the highlights and shadows, and how much of your footage is in HDR mode and how dark and light it is.
The video will appear brighter and darker as you’re recording.7.
Be sure to use your GoPro’s microphone for sound.
GoPro cameras are very good at capturing audio, and the built- in microphone will allow you to hear what’s going on around you.
But, if the audio is coming from the camera, you might want to take it out.
For instance, if someone is talking, you want to be able, for example, to hear how their voice is coming through the camera and if it’s loud enough.
If that’s not possible, you’ll want to record what the other person says or the music you hear.
You may need a different recording option for that situation.8.
Make sure the camera is set to capture video at 24fps.
24fps video is the standard that GoPro cameras shoot at right now, and 24fps footage can take a lot longer to render.
If there’s any lag in the video, the GoPro will try to smooth it out by adding some more frames to the video.
But if the video is a lot shorter, the camera won’t be able get the frame rate to match the frame rates of your camera.9.
If it’s raining, get your camera ready.
If snow is on the ground, try to get your video shot as close to the surface as possible.
If not, you’re going to have to move your GoPro.
