The new GoPro Hero 2018 edition is cheaper than the Hero 5 Black, but it won’t do 4K nor 2.7K, only up to 1440p. There are some other features missing too. Interestingly there are smart people out there managed to turn it into a Hero 5 Black that is capable of recording 4K videos!
Does ND filter on GoPro cameras actually remove jello and make your FPV videos look more cinematic? We are going to find out in this post, and I will also explain what an ND filter is, and how ND filter affect GoPro image quality.
In the new Gopro Hero 5 Session camera updates, they removed the option to change Shutter Speed. You need to install the older 1.5 firmware to have this option back.
I will explain the different GoPro settings for the best possible FPV video quality. I have been using these settings recommended for my GoPro Hero5 Session camera for FPV, and I really like how the flight videos look.
GoPro Session is becoming a popular HD camera to use on mini quads due to its compact size, but it’s expensive! Here I have the new Runcam 3 which is designed for FPV and supposed to be much cheaper yet maintains the same form factor.
GoPro Cameras are pretty tough, but unfortunately not the LCD screen, without the screen you can’t see the menu and it makes it very difficult to change settings. You might still be able to use Bluetooth, and change camera settings on your smart phone or the wifi remote.
Got the Layerlens protection for my Gopro Hero 3 Silver from GetFPV. It worked great, survived many bad crashes. But until recently I bought the Gopro Hero 3+ Black, I found the image looks really blurry and I realized it might be time to swap out the layerlens as the plastic peice is scratched really badly.
I am very impressed by how well 60fps recording works in Youtube and Vimeo, a increasingly popular feature that comes with the new GoPro Hero 4 cameras and GoPro Hero 3+ Black edition. You can tell straight away it’s 60fps and not 30fps when watching in HD, it’s a lot smoother. In this post, I will show you how to convert 30fps footage into “real” 60fps. By “real” I mean not only the increase in frame rate number, but you will also notice the improvement in video quality. Read More
GoPro Hero4 was finally released this month. There are already many videos, reviews and discussions going on about this new camera. We are going to look at the video quality, battery life and decide weather it’s worth getting the GoPro4 camera, for Quadcopter FPV and multicopter aerial photography purposes.
GoPro Camera Protective Lens Cover For Quadcopter FPV
GoPro is probably one of the most popular cameras used on quadcopters for FPV recording. Actually it does not only apply to just quadcopter, but any other RC aircraft too, fixed wings, multicopters. For the best protection from water, mud, and scratches, the GoPro camera is often put inside of the protective case, and install the case directly on the frame.
