recommended setup/settings for gopro?

Post by iotium » Wed Feb 27, 2019 8:34 pm

I recently started diving with a gopro hero 7, taking stills and video. I have a big can light but no separate light for the camera.

I've experimented a little with the camera and settings but I was wondering if anyone on here had any advice. I tested out a cheap red filter that I found on amazon and found that it generally made the colors look more realistic but the reduction in light intensity drove up the ISO setting and exposure time, making the photos grainy and blurry.

I would use the camera in protune.... And then do your color correction using the GoPro software..
