    Has anyone tried Low light/night flying video with GoPro?

    Do you get flashing red lights? GoPro Settings?

    I just find it grainy, even with the low light setting on.

    GoPro Hero 3 Black, 1080, 48 fps, then lowered to 30 fps.

    Not bad. The dusk scenes are nice.

    I was just thinking about this earlier! I was thinking about keeping it close but putting some electrical tape over the lights......would only have the lights in the back about 1/2 way covered. If it was not so windy I was going to try it.

    I was just watching this earlier.
    If you could match the colour it would look better.

    24fps is a little better for low light. (slower shutter allows more light in)
    Protune off.

    I shot some night stuff at 2.7k,. but it was really well lit.
    stuff I've show that are dark,. look terrible.

    You can buy an ir lense for gopro. Only problem is it would be useless in daytime. Colors will be way off
