When to Time-Lapse
Action cams take great stills too. Set your camera to take one shot every half-second while it’s mounted on a selfie stick to make share-worthy GIFs or an extreme new Tinder profile pic. If you’re shooting a friend hitting a jump or doing a nasty turn, try Burst mode. Then select the most epic still from the dozen or so the camera grabs.
When to 4K
Reserve 4K shots for when you really want to reproduce the scene, like taking a panning shot of the stunning view from the mountaintop. The Hero6 now does 4K at 60 frames per second, so it’s also fantastic for shooting incredibly detailed action shots. Use it sparingly—it devours memory card space and battery life.
