Here begins the difficult work. Set your camera to the correct settings can be tricky. Videographer Dan Ransom (danransom.com) explains what settings they recommend for your GoPro:
A) High-speed action. Resolution: 720p; Frame rate: 120fps; Image scale: Narrow. “So you get sharp images without any unnecessary elements to come, ” Ranson explains.” For low speeds, this setting is convenient. ”
B) General Purpose. Resolution: 1080p; Frame rate: 60fps; Image scale: Medium. “This setting I use most often, ” Ranson said.” This gives you less the fisheye effect, and sharper images. ”
C) Sharp. Resolution: 2.7K; Frame rate: 30fps: Image scale: Wide. “This is the highest resolution that I use,” I said. “It delivers the most crisp and clean image even in low light. Also, you can still easily reduce the frame when editing the picture.”
