If needed, enter the password. Tap [ ] to save the new network. Video mode contains three capture modes Video, Video + Photo, and Looping. Each capture mode has its own settings. VIDEO This capture mode is for traditional video capture. The default settings are p Wide, with Video Stabilization and Auto Low Light both turned on. For more information, see these topics: HERO5 Black Video Resolutions page 45) Video Stabilization (page 48) Interval (Video) (page 47) Auto Low Light (page 48) Manual Audio Control (page 49) Protune (page VIDEO + PHOTO Video + Photo captures photos at set intervals while you record video. The default settings are p Wide, with the interval set at 5 photos per second. Photos are captured at MP with a 16:9 aspect ratio. For more information, see these topics: HERO5 Black Video Resolutions page 45) Interval (Video) (page VIDEO MODE CAPTURE MODES
40 LOOPING VIDEO Use Looping to you continuously record video, but save only the moments that you want. For example, if you select a minute interval, only the previous 5 minutes are saved when you press the Shutter button to stop recording. If you record for 5 minutes and do not press the Shutter button to stop recording and save, the camera records anew minute interval by recording over your previous 5 minutes of footage. This capture mode is useful when you are recording events that contain long periods of inactivity that you don’t want to save, such as fishing or recording from a car dashboard. The default settings for Looping are p Wide, with the interval set at 5 minutes. Looping is not available in K, K 4:3, and p. For more information, see these topics HERO5 Black Video Resolutions page 45) Interval (Video) (page VIDEO MODE CAPTURE MODES VIDEO RESOLUTION Video resolution (RES) refers to the number of horizontal lines in the video. For example, p means that the video has 720 horizontal lines, each with a width of 1280 pixels. Higher numbers of lines and pixels result in greater detail and clarity. So, a video with resolution of K is considered higher quality than p because it consists of 3840 lines, each with a width of 2160 pixels.

42 Use this table to help you determine the best resolution for your activity. Also consider the capabilities of your computer or TV to be sure your hardware can support the selected resolution. Video Resolution Best Use 4K Stunning high-resolution video with professional low-light performance. MP stills available from video. Recommended for tripod or fixed position shots. 2.7K 16:9 resolution video downscales to provide stunning, cinema-quality results for professional productions. K Recommended for body-mounted, ski-mounted or surfboard-mounted shots. Provides large viewing area. 1440p Recommended for body-mounted shots. Aspect ratio of 4:3 captures a larger vertical viewing area, compared top. High frame rate yield the smoothest, most immersive results for high- action capture. Great for sharing to social media. 1080p Great for all shots and for sharing to social media. High resolution and frame rate yield stunning results. This resolution is available in all FOVs and its high FPS option (fps) enables slow motion during editing. VIDEO MODE SETTINGS Video Resolution Best Use 960p Use for body-mounted shots and when slow motion is desired. Aspect ratio of 4:3 provides large viewing area and smooth results for high action capture. 720p Good for handheld shots and when slow motion is desired. The high frame rate of fps is great for super slow motion, but is available only in Narrow FOV. 480p Good when super slow motion and Wide FOV are desired and standard definition is acceptable. FRAMES PER SECOND (FPS) Frames per second (FPS) refers to the number of video frames that are captured in each second. When selecting a resolution and FPS, consider the activity that you want to capture. Higher resolutions result in greater detail and clarity, but are generally available at lower fps values. Lower resolutions result in less detail and clarity, but support higher FPS values, which are important for capturing motion. Higher FPS values can also be used to create slow- motion videos. ASPECT RATIO GoPro video resolutions use two aspect ratios either 16:9 or 4:3. Standard televisions and editing programs use 16:9. Footage shot in 4:3 is 33% taller, but must be cropped to 16:9 for playback on a TV. (If footage is not cropped, it appears with black bars on the sides of the image.) VIDEO MODE SETTINGS
44 FIELD OF VIEW (FOV) The field of view (FOV) refers to how much of the scene (measured in degrees) can be captured through the camera lens. Wide FOV captures the largest amount of the scene, while Narrow FOV captures the least. The FOV options that appear are based on the selected resolution and fps. FOV Best Use SuperView SuperView delivers the world’s most immersive field of view. Good for body-or gear-mounted shots. More vertical 4:3 content is automatically stretched to full-screen 16:9 for stunning widescreen playback on your computer or TV. Wide Large field of view that is good for action shots where you want to capture as much as possible within the frame. This FOV results in a fisheye look, especially around the edge of the scene. You can crop that out during editing, if needed.) Medium Mid-range field of view that has the effect of zooming in on the center of the shot. Linear Mid-range field of view that removes the fisheye effect found in the Wide FOV. Good for capturing aerial footage or any other shot where you want to remove the distortion. Narrow Smallest field of view. Good for capturing content at a distance. Its most significant effect is that it zooms in on the center of the shot VIDEO MODE SETTINGS HERO5 BLACK VIDEO RESOLUTIONS Video Resolution (RES) FPS (NTSC/ PAL) 1 FOV Screen Resolution Aspect Ratio 4K 30/25 Wide 3840x2160 16:9 4K 24/24 Wide, SuperView 3840x2160 16:9 K 48/48 Wide, Medium, Linear 2704x1520 16:9 2.7K 30/25 SuperView, Wide, Medium, Linear 2704x1520 16:9 K 4:3 30/25 Wide 2704x2028 4:3 p 60/50 48/48 30/25 24/24 Wide 1920x1440 4:3 1080p 120/120 Wide, Narrow 1920x1080 16:9 1080p 90/90 Wide 1920x1080 16:9 1080p 80/80 SuperView 1920x1080 16:9 p 48/48 30/25 24/24 SuperView, Wide, Medium, Linear, Narrow 1920x1080 VIDEO MODE SETTINGS
