Dive Deep into Advanced Shooting Techniques with Video Series and #GoProChat

There is no question that if you mount a GoPro and push record, you are going to capture immersive content unlike anything you've snapped before. However, with continued experience and understanding of GoPro camera functionality, the possibilities become endless.

And what better way to learn more about the dynamic modes, functions, and mounting possibilities than by having a trained GoPro Media Team professional shed light on the subject? Next week, GoPro is opening the doors up to the GoPro in-house production team for a mini-series on some advanced shooting techniques, as well as taking to Twitter for a live chat with one of the GoPro video magicians.  

GoPro Field Guide Videos

The GoPro Media team responsible for the amazing productions on the GoPro channels has put together a short 3-part series that delves deeper into more advanced functionality of the GoPro HERO3+ such as Protune, Field of View, and even mounting and framing techniques. This series will live on the official GoPro Tutorials channel on Youtube. If you haven’t perused this channel, we definitely recommend having a look; there are tutorials ranging from software interface to athlete tips and tricks. 

Hopefully this latest mini-series will shine some light on some features and functions that you may not have been familiar with prior, and will help you maximize that little camera in your pack.


Join us on August 27th from 6-7 PM PST for #GoProChat, a live interactive Twitter chat with Team GoPro. In this chat we’ll discuss advanced level shooting settings and modes with GoPro Production Team Member Abe Kislevitz.

You can get a head start on learning advanced level settings by tuning into our GoPro Tutorials Youtube Channel on August 25th when we release the three-part GoPro Field Guide series.

Mark Burnett, five-time Emmy award winner and avid GoPro customer, said in a previous statement, "We have used GoPro cameras in some of our biggest productions, like Survivor and The Bible. GoPro has allowed us to capture and share fascinating new perspectives that previously weren’t possible or were too costly, which in the end makes for better story telling. We are always excited to see what GoPro is working on next."

"In a world of smartphones and increasingly small cameras, GoPro is still the film fans device of choice and the rugged gadget that will launch the careers of many future directors. If in doubt, check out the home made rocket that took a GoPro to space or the shark footage, both on YouTube." - T3 Award for the GoPro HERO3

"Despite a lot of newcomers in the field, GoPro is still the leader in adventure cameras. The new Hero3 Black manages to pack an f/2.8 wide-angle lens, a 12-megapixel sensor, and the power to shoot 30 still frames per second into a camera body that’s smaller than a bar of soap" – Outside Magazine "Gear of the Year" 2013
