Night Time Specs
In a blog post in April 2019, I wrote about why the iPhone Xs Max was a better night time camera because of the camera specs. Today I have 4 active devices that I can use for nighttime photography. I have the GoPro 7 Silver, iPhone Xs Max, Panasonic DC-FZ80, and the GoPro Hero 9.
Here's an updated table of the specs of four cameras that I have:
|Name||GoPro 7 Silver||GoPro 9||iPhone Xs Max||Panasonic DC-FZ80|
|ISO||1600||6400||2,304||80 to 6400|
|Aperture||f/2.8||f/2.8||f/1.8||f/2.8 to f/8.0|
|Exposure Time||1/15||1/9600 |
Winter in New England means some cold nights are here. It might be risky to leave the GoPro out a night to take overnight time-lapse videos. Here are the recommended temperature settings for the GoPro cameras
|GoPro 7 Silver||40-105 degrees|
|HERO9 Black||14° F ~ 95° F (10° C ~ 35° C)|
As for night time Time Lapse photography, I'll be using the GoPro Hero 9. It certainly does a better job. Check out this video using the nighttime time-lapse settings. It makes it looks like a time warp
