Shooting photos and time lapse

We've been talking a lot about shooting video with the GoPro, but they also shoot still photos and time-lapse. Jim, why am I to use a time-lapse or stills in a production? >> Well, it's with the of all these still cameras that take video, gives you a multipurpose use of all of your gear. >> And it's six time higher resolution than what the video is. So let's take a look at a couple of those settings that we get here. We're just going to remotely take control of the camera. And of course on the photo resolution it goes from five mega pixels up to 12.

You do have a medium field of view if you need it. I choose the wide. Notice on the continuous shot which could be good just to keep shooting stills, we could set it to take a shot every three seconds or every ten seconds. And once you hit go, it's just going to to keep firing still. So imagine driving around a racetrack, or you just want to keep capturing the action for the whole time, you could choose it and it's not going to stop shooting until the card's full or the battery goes dead. So let's just finish out some of these options here. We talked about burst. You can go ahead and you can capture multiple shots over a short time period, even faster than a DSRR can.

Or of course we can even go with a time-lapse, and this allows us to keep capturing. And once you got that, when we hit record, it just keeps going. It's going to fire off those multiple still shots, creating a time lapse movie. Now, do you tend to use the remote app? Do you like that for triggering? >> I love the remote app. It allows me, especially since I'm multitasking a lot of these shoots, I can literally be by my main camera shooting the main action or the you know, the A camera coverage. But I can keep one of these things right next to me and monitor the remote camera here, the remote camera there.

It's another lesson to manage all of these tools and manage your material in an organized way. And but I, I love the remote function because it allows me to do that, if anything. >> Alright, so if you are not comfortable using the remote, you can go ahead and check out our other GoPro title. We walk you all through the Wi-Fi settings, and how to set it up. Just make sure you get your cameras up to date with the latest software. Download the latest version of the app. And if you want to do still shooting it's fantastic. You can remotely trigger the camera, or switch it in and out of video to still mode or time lapse mode, with just a couple of taps.
