    and this brings up the first of two setting menus for the camera.
    Okay? There are two setting menus for the camera.

    First one is Megapixel.
    Click there - top button - to enter this menu and here you can see that we have different options.

  6. 6
    There is the 12 Megapixel Wide, which a default, this is the highest Megapixel resolution on the camera.
    There is also 7 Megapixel wide, 7 Megapixel medium, and 5 megapixel wide okay?

    Now 12 megapixel does give the best quality but it takes up obviously the most room.
    The reason we might change the megapixel resolution is to allow you to take more photos in your SD card. The lower the resolution, the more space you have to take more photos okay? You also maybe want to the change the field of view and to do this through the megapixels, through the megapixel resolution. If you want to change down to 7 megapixels, you have a medium field of view. This can just help to break up some of your shots if you take everything in wide view. Wide angle, it can cause some distortion and it just - you lose the concept of what exactly wide angle is. Viewers need to show one thing to understand the other so by changing the angle, the view, and you can kind of add a bit more life, vibrancy and interest to your photos okay?

    And now, we have moved on, we can move on.
    Press again - the mode button again and we are going to move on to the next, the second option.

    We are going to enter that second option in camera settings which is the continuous photo okay?

  11. 11
    Continuous photo allows us to take more photos continuously just by pressing down on the shutter button okay?
    So, there is single, click on that.

  12. 12
    Single, go down, there is three photos every one second, and five photos every one second and ten photos every ten seconds.
    So if we have it just on single, then when we press the shutter button, it will take one individual photo. The other three options allow us to take continuous photos at different speeds, and different amounts of photos every second.

  13. 13
    Once you have selected a function, the camera will remain on that function in continuous mode until you return it to single photo capture mode okay?
    So, until you have exited, until you have returned - sorry - to photo capture mode, your camera will remain in continuous photo mode okay? Because obviously, it thinks maybe you want to change it quickly. Okay, so we clicked on the Single, we have selected that, and that covers the two settings menu related to camera options in the GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition.
