GoPro Tips Website:
In this video I show how to change the resolution of the video that your GoPro camera records. As well as the frame rate. This is the setting that you will change most when using your camera.

    This is a useful video but you really should have started with ‘How to turn
    ProTune on’.

    absolute waste of my time mate….watched another of your videos 2 mins ago
    and that was useless too. This does not cover anything with regards to set
    up at all….all you did was talk about resolution and protune.

    When I get frustrated with the battery I remind myself that I got the GoPro to record what my other cameras CAN NOT.

    Shame there is no mention as to why you might actually want to change the
    frame rate or resolution!!!

    I have the same question as Marcella J. My video looks grainy and I was
    shooting on the 4K setting. What do you suggest?

    Not a great video in my opinion. At times, you have your fingers on both
    the top button and the front buttons of the camera, and therefore it’s
    impossible to know which button you are pressing! Keep in mind that if we
    are watching this video, the camera is likely brand new to us.

    I have a hero3+ black. What does protune does exactly, how is it related to
    video editing? Thank you!

    The word is “specifically”.
    pacifically doesn’t apply here.

    The only change on my 3 White is resolution. No FOV. It’s on wide, like it
    or not.

    this might seem a stupid question, but when scrolling through main menus,
    there is no playback menu showing, That is the right facing arrow which
    comes after the spanner symbol. Any Ideas, as I need to enable video
    output from the camera and need to acess this menu. Must be something
    simple I am doing wrong here.. Please repy at my email address if poss. if you have time.
    thanks Stewart
