Guys that use go pros

Unread postby dstreet » Sat May 17, 2014 11:54 am

Here is some side by side low light footage of 2 go pros.

The left is the Hero3 black edition shooting 720/120fps and on the right is the original hero shooting 720/60fps.
The 3 definitely worked better in low light.

I got the black. What setting should i use to get my arrow passthrough on a deer? I have it on 1080 60fps now.

The more fps the better slow motion you'll get when the arrow comes through. 720 still gives a decent picture so I've been using that setting and going with more fps. More fps will eat up more memory on your card as well so keep that in mind. The turkey footage with the arrow coming out was 720/60fps with the original hero. We had perfect sunlight so it was ok. Good luck on getting that shot!!! Thats going to be tough!

Nahh. Put it on a run and a little scent on ground to stop the deer.

i run 1080 60fps
shoot the highest i can. yeah, fills the card quicker. but for what i do with it, i want the best look it can produce.

a lot of footage needs to be color corrected. at least to match a video camera. the auto white balance screws me up sometimes. have to cut the clip, then color correct. putting a video camera clip between. less noticeable.

The original hero won’t shoot 1080/60fps. If I’m using the 3 black I’ll shoot 1080/60 normally but if I’m trying to get get slow motion I’m going with 720/120fps.
