Introduction: 4K Time Lapse Using GoPro Hero4 for Dummies
Hello Instructables Community!
I hope you enjoy traveling as much as I do! I especially love to keep memories of the beautiful places I visit.
One of my favorite ways of keeping memories is with my GoPro, my mate of travel! I love my GoPro because it is very small and practical but also very powerful (you can record in 4K definition!)
Today I am showing you how to create a TIMELAPSE that your friends and family will enjoy watching. I promise they will be captured by the way your special place will look!
Let's get started!
Step 1: What You Need:
-Go Pro Hero4 Black / Silver
-32 GB Memory card for HD /4K recording
-Standard camera housing case (for outdoors recording) or frame (for indoor recording)
-GoPro standard screw
-Drift time lapse or similar
-GoPro tripod adapter
-Mobile device with GoPro App installed
Step 2: Insert Memory Card
After inserting memory card you should secure it.
Step 3: Tripod Adapter and Time Lapse
The tripod adapter will be the connection between the timelapse and the GoPro Camera
Step 4: Housing Case in Timelapse
Use the screw to keep together the time lapse and the case. Remember that depending on the video you will record you may use the frame (indoors) or the housing case (outdoors).
Step 5: GoPro in Case
Insert camera in the case.
Step 6: Turn on Camera
You should turn on your camera! (ensure your battery is full ... please!)
Step 7: Pair GoPro App and Camera Using WiFi and Bluetooth
You will control your video recording and settings from your mobile so please turn on your Wi Fi and Bluetooth
Step 8: Connect to GoPro Via Wifi
Connect to your GoPro Wifi and do not turn off your Bluetooth!
Step 9: Open Go Pro App and Select Home Button
You can adjust brightness, color and other settings in Options
Step 10: Rotate Timelapse Clockwise and Set in Desired Place
You are almost ready to start recording! Keep in mind that your timelapse will go from right to left
Step 11: Select Timelapse Video Option
Open Go Pro App and select in Video the option "Timelapse Video"
Step 12: Start Recording - Preview
Consider that 10 seconds of recording will be around 1 second of timelapse, so please BE PATIENT!
After recording you can preview your timelapse in your mobile.
Step 13: Share and Enjoy
Connect GoPro to desktop and download your video.
Share with friends and family and ENJOY!
I hope you love this feature as much as I do :)
