    Very cool video! What night settings did you use? I just took mine up last night with the Hero 4 Black trying to film some Christmas lights etc and the pic quality is awful. There are so many modes though I'm not sure what one to use lol.

    Thanks so much I am also playing around with the settings. Last night I used 2.7 K changed the protune to 1600 but still tooling around with it. Then I took it from go pro studio to Final Cut Pro to edit.

    are you guys putting some duct tape or something over the front red lights so it doesn't bleed into your video?

    I was wanting to try this myself for Christmas lights but wasn't sure of the best settings with my GoPro 3+ black

    The fireworks are awesome! I guess you just have to make sure you stay far enough back from them, I want to try capturing some video of that now.

    I'm not night flying yet but last night I did my first ever nightlapse with my new Gopro 4 silver. It came out pretty cool I think for my first try. I could see plane lights streak across the sky, some cloud and star movement, then the dawn. I'm sure I could get better star movement outside the city it's a bit bright here.
    I'm going to try a longer one tonight and see how that looks. I used this page as a reference for it. http://abekislevitz.com/understanding-p ... the-hero4/ that guy has some great stuff online with detailed explanations of settings

    I just did this out my window last night. You can see some stars moving, plane lights, a few cars go down the street fast, it's dark then sunrise. About 15 sec video.

    Almost night. The GoPro Hero 3+ brightens it up a bit.
