GoPro HERO4 Black Nightlapse 1st Light

Recommended Posts


I haven't posted for way too long but while I'm waiting for my new obsy to get built I decided to see what I can do with my new GoPro HERO4 Black that I've just purchased.

It's rainy season over here in Philippines sadly so clouded out quite a lot but my 1st impressions have been very promising with this new cam. Once the season changes I'm certain there's some great footage to capture here.

I'm still unsure of what settings I need to use to get the best results and I'm also trying different locations to see what works best, looking for darker skies (avoiding neighbours night lights!) etc...

If there are any other GoPro users that can give me any hints/advice it would be greatly appreciated, especially with processing the raw data. At the moment I'm just processing through the free GoPro Studio software.

Thanks for taking a look

Hi Kevin

Interesting wide field views - it wil be good to see the results when the skies clear!

What field of view are you using?

Hi Paul

I was using the 12M wide setting from the GoPro menu, not sure the exact field of view that is sadly!

      I've created a small compilation of videos of the Night Sky from my small back garden,
      Living in a small town with light pollution it's quite surprising on what you can see and even more surprising on how much the GoPro will pick up.
      I hope you like the video.
