    Help! Best gopro settings for night riding

    Good evening. As you know by now I'm working on some reviews. I've used gopros in the past to help show what the light looks like on the trail. But I've never been that happy with it. I've got a hero 4 silver and want to set it up. I normally just set it to 1080p low light as this is the easiest. But I think this adjust the brightness from light to light

    Can any one suggest good base settings for setting up the gopro.

    Spank, problem you run into is the camera trying to deal with ultra bright and pure darkness. But the main thing I found is lower the frame rate (thought hero 4 is supposed to do this automatically). So far ive been using 720 resolution, just easier to deal with as 1080 on my camera only has 30fps on 1080. But I always run at 30FPS after dark. They do great with low light or bright light, but mixing the 2 to harsh extremes like bike light on the trail, just gets to be too much to totally deal with the contrast. Wide angle lens makes it even more challenging, alot its trying to capture, and the contrast form center to edge is massive.
