Video Formatas

Advanced Video Capture Settings


Video mode that captures the world's most immersive wide angle perspective. Allows you to capture more of yourself and your surroundings in the shot, and provides full widescreen playback.

SuperView Settings
SuperView Mode Video Resolution
1080 SuperView 1920 x 1080
720 SuperView 1280 x 720


Advanced video mode that yields stunning image quality and cinema-caliber video optimized for professional productions, giving content creators more flexibility and workflow efficiency.

  • Captures images with less compression, giving content creators higher quality for professional productions.
  • Protune enables manual control of White Balance, Color, ISO Limit, Sharpness and Exposure for advanced control and customization of your video footage.
  • Records video in cinema-quality 24 fps, allowing you to easily intercut GoPro content with other source media without the need to perform fps conversion.

White Balance:

White Balance adjusts the overall color tone of videos.

White Balance Setting Recommended Lighting Conditions
3000K (Default) Warm Light (incandescent or sunrise/sunset lighting)
5500K Slightly cool light (cool fluorescent, average daylight)
6500K Cool light (overcast conditions)
Cam RAW Industry standardized optimized color


Color allows you to adjust the color profile of your video footage. There are two Color options: GoPro Color (default) and Flat. GoPro Color delivers the same great color you get when Protune is turned OFF. Flat results in a neutral color profile that can be color-corrected to better match footage captured with other equipment, offering more flexibility in post-production.

Color Setting Resulting Color Profile
GoPro Color (Default) GoPro color-corrected profile
Flat Flat, neutral color profile

ISO Limit

ISO Limit adjusts the camera’s sensitivity in low-light environments, and creates a balance between brightness and resulting image noise. A higher ISO Limit will result in brighter footage, but you may experience more noise. A lower ISO Limit will result in darker footage, but will deliver reduced noise.

ISO Limit Setting Resulting Video Quality
6400 (Default) Brighter video in low light, increased image noise
1600 Moderately bright video in low light, moderate image noise
400 Darker video in low light, reduced image noise


Sharpness controls the sharpness of your video footage. There are three Sharpness options: Low, Medium and High.

Sharpness Setting Resulting Video Quality
High (Default) Ultra-sharp video
Medium Moderately sharp video
Low Softer video that allows for more flexibility in post-production

Looping Video

Records a continuous video loop that overwrites itself until you press the shutter button to stop it. It's ideal for saving space on your memory card while waiting to catch a moment of action.


Exposure compensation affects the brightness of your video. Adjusting Exposure can improve image quality when shooting in environments with contrasting lighting conditions.

Exposure Settings
0 (Default)

Spot Meter

Ideal for filming within a dark space with the camera pointed towards a brighter setting (such as filming outdoors from within a car).

One Button

Upon powering on, the camera automatically begins recording video or capturing Time Lapse photos.

Auto Low Light

Automatically adjusts frame rates according to lighting conditions for enhanced low-light performance.
