Access the Camera Settings Menu on the GoPro Hero 3
Edited by Thor, Crystal, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. Today I'm going to show you how to access the Camera Settings on your GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition.
- 5Now we are in the Photo Resolution menu. The Photo Resolution menu shows us the four options. There is 12MP Wide, 7MP Wide, 7MP Medium and 5MP Wide. 12MP is the highest resolution, it gives the best quality photo and is used often. It is a wide view shot and it is the favorite one of most GoPro users. The reason we might change the megapixel resolution is because the lower resolution means less quality, but it also means each picture takes up less space on your SD card so you can take more photos. The other reason we might change this setting is because always taking a photo in wide angle can cause some distortion and cause you to lose appreciation for the wide angle because it takes every photo in this angle. If you mix it up a little bit and add a bit of medium angle in there, you get a different contrast to your photos. Select the option you want, I'm going to choose 12MP.
- 8If you select one of these options and then hold down the shutter button for as many seconds as you like, it will take a burst of photos. It will take 10 photos every second if you selected that. Remember to hold it down. It's also important to know that your camera will remain in Continuous Photo mode until you return it to single photo capture mode.
- 9These are the two settings related to the camera function on the GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition. Play with the settings, experiment and see what you can come up with, take some photos in different situations and different contexts. See the contracts between different bursts, angles, megapixels and different resolutions. That's the best way to learn about your camera, experiment, have fun, see what you can create. If you have any questions, comments, queries or suggestions about things we've talked about today you can leave them in the section below. You've been watching VisiHow. Goodbye.
