GoPro Master the Modes: Night Lapse On HERO7 Black + Fusion

GoPro_News_Fusion_Night_Lapse1

Capturing the night sky is no easy feat. There are ISO settings, shutter speeds and movement blurs to take into consideration. But when all three come together, the result is a color glimpse into space and moments often missed by the untrained eye, or lens.

With the launch of HERO7 Black, GoPro introduced an improved Night Photo Mode that unlocked higher ISO options and longer shutter speeds, making night photography a bit easier for GoPro users. And just last month, GoPro lit up the spherical world a first-ever public beta for Fusion with Firmware v2.0 that brought RAW photos to Night Lapse Mode at a 5 second interval.

To give a definitive guide to mastering these new modes, we tapped GoPro engineering tools specialist and night/time lapse photography guru Shreenivasan Manievannan. The following words and photos are by Shreenivasan.

Night Photo Mode on HERO7 Black and Fusion is the strongest it’s ever been. Thanks to recent updates, my favorite mode now provides better image quality when capturing the change of light over a period and enables capturing a time lapse in day-to-night scenarios.

To break it down, on HERO7 Black, ISO settings can reach 1600 with RAW enable when using manual shutter speed, increasing light sensitivity. Whereas on Fusion, ISO settings can now be set to 800 with RAW enabled to get amazing details with the new Beta Firmware v2.0. Plus, Fusion Studio also has been updated to read edited RAW photos for easier stitching.

The Top Reasons to Use Night Lapse Photo Mode:

  • The GoPro stores every individual photo shot during the timeframe, enabling more creative editing in post processing.
  • You can capture long exposures up to 10s when using AUTO Shutter set to ISO range of 100 to 800.
  • Auto interval settings allow for smooth transitions of light in day-to-night time lapses, or vice versa.
  • The resulting set of photos provides the option to stack images in post to create the elusive “star trail” still image (pictured below).
