I highly recommend using the Protune settings for the GoPro Hero 12 if you’re an advanced user looking to tweak your videos in post-production. 

Drawing from my 8 years of video editing experience, I’ll share my favorite Protune settings with you today and provide a free-to-download GoPro Hero 12 Protune cheat sheet.

Check out my quick overview of GoPro Hero 12 Protune settings:

Come usare GoPro HERO 12 [Guida per principianti 2024]


  • Select the aspect ratio based on your framing needs, with 16:9 for a standard view and 4:3 for a taller image
  •  Opt for higher frame rates (up to 240 fps in 2.7K or 1080p) for smooth motion and slow-motion effects
  • Use wider FOV options like SuperView for an immersive scene capture or narrower options like Linear for less distortion and more detail
  • Options like HyperSmooth with AutoBoost provide maximum stability
  • Adjust White Balance for color temperature and use LUT GoPro for desired saturation and post-production flexibility


What Are Protune Settings

Le impostazioni di Protune sono opzioni avanzate che consentono di personalizzare la qualità di video e foto secondo la tua preferenza.

Why To Activate Protune

Protune settings are important because they allow you to customize the quality and style of your GoPro photos and videos.

It also enables higher bit rate recording for video, which means less compression and better image quality.

However, Protune is not mandatory to use. It is an optional feature for advanced users who want more control and flexibility over their GoPro settings. 

If you are a beginner or do not want to spend time editing your content after shooting, you can use the default settings that will give you good results right out of the box. 

When you activate Protune, it grants you manual control over the following settings:

  • Velocità dell'otturatore
  • Exposure Value (EV) Compensation
  • Impostazioni ISO
  • White Balance adjustments
  • Sharpness levels
  • Color Profiles
  • Bit rate

How To Activate Protune

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to activate Protune for HERO 12 Black:

1. Start by accessing ‘Pro Controls’.
2. Swipe left on the dashboard screen.
3. Tap on ‘Controls’.
4. Select ‘Pro mode’.

È possibile modificare quanto segue Impostazioni di protune per l'GoPro Hero 12:


The Resolution determines the size of the image in pixels. Higher resolution means more detail and clarity, but also larger file size and shorter battery life. You can choose from different resolutions depending on the aspect ratio and frame rate you want.

Frame Rate

Frame Rate is how many frames per second (fps) are captured in the video.

A higher frame rate means smoother motion and better slow-motion effects, but also larger file size and shorter battery life.

ISO Min/Max

The ISO is how sensitive the camera is to light. Higher ISO means brighter image and better performance in low-light situations, but also more noise and graininess. Lower ISO means a darker image, better performance in bright situations, and less noise and smoothness.

You can choose from different ISO Min/Max options depending on the lighting conditions and the quality you want to achieve.

This determines the field of view (FOV) of the camera. Wider FOV means more of the scene is captured, but also more distortion and less detail. A narrower FOV means less of the scene is captured, but also less distortion and more detail. You can choose from different digital lens options depending on the resolution, aspect ratio, and frame rate you want.

For example, you can shoot in SuperView, Wide, Linear, Linear+Horizon Leveling, or HyperView in 16:9 aspect ratio, or Wide or Linear in 4:3 aspect ratio.

Stabilizzazione video

La stabilizzazione video determina la misura in cui la fotocamera compensa i movimenti mossi e le vibrazioni. Una maggiore stabilizzazione significa video più fluidi e stabilizzati, but also more cropping and less FOV. Lower stabilization means more natural and dynamic video, but also more shaking and jitters.

You can choose from different video stabilization options depending on the resolution, aspect ratio, frame rate, and digital lens you want. For example, you can use HyperSmooth with AutoBoost, On, or Off settings in most modes, or Horizon Lock with Linear+Horizon Leveling or Obiettivi Max SuperView.


La nitidezza determina quanto sono nitidi o morbidi i bordi dell'immagine.

Higher sharpness means more crisp edges and more detail, but also more risk of artifacts and aliasing. Lower sharpness means more soft edges and less detail, but also a more natural-looking and smoother image.

You can choose from different sharpness options depending on the quality you want to achieve.

For example, you can use High sharpness for most situations, or Low sharpness for cinematic and professional looks.

Velocità dell'otturatore

Next, the Shutter Speed is how long each frame is exposed to light. A higher shutter speed means less motion blur and more sharpness, but also darker images and more noise.

A lower shutter speed means more motion blur, less sharpness, a brighter image, and less noise. 

A general rule in filmmaking is to set the shutter speed at twice your frame rate for that cinematic motion blur.

For instance:

  • For 30 FPS, your Shutter Speed should be 1/60.
  • For 120 FPS, aim for a Shutter Speed of 1/240.

A quick tip: When using Protune to manually adjust your shutter speed in line with your frame rate, consider investing in GoPro ND filters. They help maintain consistent lighting, acting as shades for your GoPro, especially when filming with Protune enabled.

EV (Valore di esposizione)

This determines how bright or dark the image is. Higher EV means brighter images and more details in shadows, but also more risk of overexposure and blown-out highlights.

Lower EV means darker image and more details in highlights, but also more risk of underexposure and lost details in shadows. 

I suggest the following ProTune EV Comp. Settings: -0.5 or -1 (improves details in highlights)

Bilanciamento del bianco

White Balance shows how warm or cool the colors are in the image.

GOPRO WHITE BALANCE: come cambiarlo

Higher white balance means warmer colors and more yellow tones, but also more natural-looking skin tones and sunsets. A lower white balance means cooler colors and more blue tones, but also more natural-looking snow and water. You can choose from different white balance options depending on the lighting conditions and the mood you want to create.

For example, you can use Bilanciamento automatico white per la maggior parte delle situazioni, o il bilanciamento Native white per ottenere colori accurati.

Profilo colore

Questo determina il grado di saturazione o di piattezza dei colori dell'immagine. A higher color profile means more saturated colors and more contrast, but also less room for color correction in post-production.

PROFILO COLORE GOPRO: come cambiarlo

A lower color profile means more flat colors and less contrast, but also more room for color correction in post-production. You can choose from different color profile options depending on the style you want to achieve.

For example, you can use a GoPro color profile for vibrant and ready-to-share colors, or a Flat color profile for professional and flexible colors.

If you want to try more color grading to transform your photos and videos, I recommend downloading my Cinematic Color Grading LUTs, specifically optimized for GoPro.

Bit rate

Infine, la velocità di trasmissione determina la quantità di dati utilizzati per codificare l'immagine. A higher bit rate means higher quality and more detail, but also larger file size and slower transfer speed.

A lower bit rate means lower quality and less detail, but also smaller file size and faster transfer speed. You can choose from different bit rate options depending on the resolution, aspect ratio, frame rate, and digital lens you want.

For example, you can use Standard bit rate for most situations, or High bit rate for complex scenes and longer recordings.
