11 Killer GoPro Hero 8 Settings


Hier zijn de 11 best GoPro Hero 8 settings you should know about in order to produce the perfect picture/video with your device:

Video Settings:

POV Preset

I typically like using the POV Preset for filming high resolution content that doesn’t require slowing down. You can use this preset for things like things such as walkthroughs, interactions with people, or anything where my editing process won’t need an additional camera angle because it’s all happening right there from one lens point of view so you get a true experience through someone’s eyes!

The on-screen shortcuts you get in this preset include Lens, White Balance, ISO Max, and EV Comp. Lens gives a quick access to Linear footage or Wide depending on what you want (Linear tends to look better when filming vlogs while wide typically for sports and action). Witbalans sets the color temperature. ISO Max lets you adjust colors based on different lighting conditions (lower to 100 for full sunlight, raise to 1600 for darkest scenes).

Standard Preset

This versatile preset that’s great for all-purpose recording. I particularly use it for social media posts. It shoots 1080p video at 60 frames per second (fps) for full-screen playback on your phone and TV. The digital lens is set to Wide to capture more of the scene in the frame.

In de standard preset, you get shortcuts to Lens, HyperSmooth, Clips, and Slo-Mo. You get access to all the lenses and can utilize HyperSmooth Boost here. Clips is great if you want preset video lengths of 15-30 seconds. Langzaam afgespeelt lets you toggle between 120-60FPS.

Activiteitsvoorinstelling

De Activiteitsvoorinstelling is useful to capture ultra immersive footage of pretty much any activity. It records 2.7K video at 60 fps with the SuperView digital lens. This gives your video the classic GoPro look with high-resolution full-screen playback.

The shortcuts you get on-screen include Lens, White Balance, ISO Max, and Slo-Mo (like the previous presets). The only difference here is that the Slo-Mo button which will toggle you between 30-60FPS (instead of 120-60FPS). Please note the Linear isn’t available at 60FPS in this mode. So, you’ll have to change to 30FPS if you want to switch  to Linear.

Filmische voorinstelling

De Cinematic Preset lets you shoot stunning 4K videos at 30 fps. As the name suggests, this mode delivers a dramatic cinematic feel to your footage by using the Linear digital lens to smooth out the fish-eye effect. Cinematic Preset is my go-to preset for 3rd person and follow cam type shots.

De lens shortcut lets you switch between Wide and Linear, while the Langzaam afgespeelt shortcut allows you to quickly swap between 30 and 60FPS. Kindly note that 4K-60FPS Linear with HyperSmooth is not currently available. However, it may be released with a firmware update in future.

Langzaam afgespeelt

Zoals de naam al doet vermoeden, is de Slo-mo Preset lets you slow things down to 8x normal speed during playback. This preset records 1080p footage at 240 fps. It uses HyperSmooth 2.0 to deliver crystal clear ultra-slow motion shots with amazing details that you can’t see with the naked eye! Slo-mo is perfect for fast-action shots.

With this preset, you get Clips shortcut so that you can easily get 15 or 30 second short video clips for social media sharing.

Time Lapse Settings:

Time Warp 2.0 Preset

Een geavanceerde versie van GoPro Time Warp, de Tijdafwijking 2.0 is de standaard time-lapse-instelling op de GoPro Hero 8 Black. Deze voorinstelling is voor jou als je een time-lapse-video wilt maken terwijl je camera beweegt. Hiermee kunt u de tijd versnellen terwijl u de geweldige HyperSmooth 2.0-beeldstabilisatietechnologie van de Hero 8 Black gebruikt. Met Time Warp 2.0 kun je ultravloeiende time-lapse-video's maken terwijl je onderweg bent. Dit maakt het perfect voor mountainbiketochten, wandelingen en meer.

Standaard legt Time Warp 2.0 1080p HD-video vast met de groothoeklens van je Hero 8. Het past automatisch je opnamesnelheid aan voor de beste resultaten. Als je speciale aandacht wilt besteden aan een paar interessante momenten in de video, kun je ook tikken om een bepaalde scène te vertragen tot realtime en vervolgens nogmaals tikken om het weer te versnellen.

Time Lapse Preset

Deze preset is voor degenen die willen vastleggen time-lapse video wanneer de Hero 8 Black-camera is gemonteerd en stilstaat. Het is een geweldige modus om zonsopgang/zonsondergangen, horizon, wolken, straattaferelen en soortgelijke opnamen te maken waarbij gedurende een lange periode moet worden gefotografeerd.

gopro schieten time lapse video

Wanneer je de 'Time Lapse'-instelling selecteert, neemt je GoPro Hero 8 Black 1080p-video op (standaard) met de brede digitale lens terwijl elke 0,5 seconde één opname wordt gemaakt.

Night Lapse Preset

Zoals de naam al doet vermoeden, is de Nachtverval preset is bedoeld om time-lapse-video vast te leggen in donkere omstandigheden en bij weinig licht met je Hero 8 Black. Het past automatisch de sluitertijd van de camera aan om meer licht binnen te laten en kiest het interval dat u de beste resultaten geeft.

Nachtverval

GoPro Hero 8 Night Lapse maakt 1080p-video met de brede digitale lens als standaard. Dergelijke opnamen zijn uitsluitend bedoeld voor die gelegenheden waarbij uw camera stilstaat en wordt vastgehouden door een houder of een statief.

Photo Settings:

Photo Preset

De Photo Preset lets you capture a single photo or a series of continuous photos. To capture a single photo, you need to make one single press of the Shutter button. when you press and hold the Shutter button, continuous photos at a rate of up to 30 per second will be captured. Using this mode, you can snap a photo using either timer mode, voice-control, or both. It is typically used to click selfies, photos with friends, or landscapes.

I usually turn RAW on white capturing photos, because I like to edit the pictures on a computer later for social media sharing. For those who don’t want to do editing, I recommend using SuperPhoto. For best results, keep Witbalans at ‘Auto’ or ‘5500K’ for daylight photos, and ISO Min & ISO Max at ‘100’ to make the photo look super clean. In case of low-light photography, make sure that your camera is super-steady to avoid motion blur (especially if you’re using ISO Max at ‘100’ as suggested).

Burst Preset

Burst Preset lets you capture a series of photos at blistering rates (up to 30 photos in 1 second). This makes it perfect for fast-action shots where you’d like to pick and choose the perfect shot later.

The recommended settings for Burst mode are similar to the Photo Preset.

Night Preset

De Night Preset automatically adjusts your camera’s shutter speed to let in more light for your shot. It’s perfect for low-light or night scenes. But, it’s not recommended for handheld/mounted shots with a moving camera. You must ensure that your GoPro Hero 8 Black is still or mounted to a tripod.

When using the Night Photo Preset, I suggest that you capture a few test photos with different settings to have the perfect photo. In this preset, you get Luik as a shortcut, because you need to adjust it depending on the available light. For example, to capture the stars, you should set the shutter speed at 30 seconds. Then you have ISO Min and Max. You need to sometimes set a high ISO to make sure the stars are captured properly. Last but not the least, Witbalans is a must-have! Slide it according to your preference and see what suits you the best.
