    I was just wondering if any of you use different FOV settings for general purpose recreational flying versus recording video for a purpose using the GoPro. If so, what settings do you use and why?

    For cinematography stuff I use the GoPro Hero 3+ Black:

    2.7K
    25FPS
    Medium field of view
    Protune On
    Medium sharpen
    Manual white balance if conditions are static

    That gives you a good enough image when downscaled to 1080p, and grades OK. I've used 1080P on the GoPro and it is awful.

    Thanks, James. That's the kind of response I was looking for. Appreciate it.
