    Curious how many of you record sunsets and sunrises. Specifically getting he exposure correct with the GoPro. When th sun is rising and theres all sorts of great color, the GoPro tries to adjust for the darker areas making everything seems washed out or gray as expected. I do photography and most cameras will do this. So, can you set the GoPro exposuremanually? How do you combat this issue? Curious as to what to do here. Thanks.

    I had the same question…down in Florida right now and trying to get some great sunset shots but the exposure compensation on the GoPro is ruining most of the pictures…Im thinking the only way to make adjustments is through photoshop…although I have seen videos on youtube of people putting polarized film sheet inside a go pro lens protector..

    Ironic, this morning my 1st try at sunrise ish 0630 for 2hrs on 10 sec time lapse , just added warmth on go pro studio
    Going to get lots more to experiment etc

    Go pro apparently captures in pro tune which is intentionally washed out so you can add colour later I think, or it certainly has a setting in pro tune

    Here's my sunrise vid. I really like the color I get with the gopro for sunrises. There was some light clouds on the horizon when I shot this which made for really brilliant color. I adjusted the brightness, contrast and saturation with GoPro Studio.

    Here's a photo from the same shoot:



    I believe the settings for this were 1080 super, protune.
