There are 4 modes of this action camera: Video, Loop Record, Time-lapse Video, Slow Motion, and Fast Motion.
What Video modes does Brave 4 Elite support?
- Normal Video Mode
In this mode, the camera records multiple videos in the set video resolution. You can press and hold the Up or Down button or tap the Zoom icon to adjust the zoom level. The camera supports up to 4X
- Loop Record Mode
In this mode, when you press the Shutter button, the camera records videos of a specific length. When the memory is full, old files will be overwritten by new ones. This mode is suitable for taking videos on a long journey.
- Time-lapse Video Mode
In Time-lapse Video mode, press the Shutter button, the camera will record 30fps videos from frames captured at specific intervals. This process results in a high-quality representation of the transformation of space over time. A video that lasts several hours can be played back in just a couple of minutes or even seconds.
(Heads up: Time-lapse Videos are captured without audio.)
- Slow Motion Mode
The camera records videos in specific resolutions and zoom levels. For example, if you choose the 2.7K 2X option to record a video for 1 minute, the camera will create a 2-minute slow-motion video in 2.7K resolution. This mode is particularly useful for capturing scenes with fast movements that benefit from the slow-motion effect.
- Fast Motion Mode
The camera records videos in specific resolutions and zoom levels in a fast-motion mode. For example, if you choose the 2.7K 2X option to record a video for 1 minute, the camera will create a 30-second slow-motion video in 2.7K resolution. This mode is particularly useful when you want to play back videos at a faster speed than normal.
What parameters can be adjusted in the Video modes?
- Video Resolution
4K60 FPS/4K 30FPS/2.7K 60FPS/2.7K 30FPS/1080P 120FPS/1080P 60FPS/1080P 30FPS/720P 240FPS /720P 120FPS/720P 60FPS (Default setting is 4K60FPS)
This camera is capable of recording video up to 4K30FPS, with a higher resolution offering greater clarity and detail due to the increased number of pixels. However, higher-resolution video also results in larger file sizes.
- Voice Record: Off/On (Default setting is On.)
You can mute or unmute your videos according to your needs.
- Image Stabilization: Off/On (Default setting is Off.)
Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) 2.0 effectively corrects the lens distortion, allowing for smooth videos. This feature is suitable for use in riding, skiing, and handheld scenes. But when this option is enabled, the shooting angle will be narrowed.
- Loop Record:1 Min/2 Min/3 Min (Default setting 1 Min.)
Loop Record allows you to set the shooting time of each video. When Loop Record mode is enabled, old files will be overwritten by new ones. Once the memory becomes full, the camera will delete the first video file to make room for the new file. For example, if you set Loop Record to "1 Minute", the camera will create a 1-minute video, and this video will be deleted when the camera needs more memory.
- Timelapse Interval: 1 Sec/3 Sec/5 Sec/10 Sec/30 Sec/1 Min (Default setting is 1 Sec.)
This option enables you to specify the frequency at which the video frames are captured and compiled. The camera will capture a series of videos at the set interval.
- Timelapse Duration
Unlimited/5 Min/10 Min/15 Min/20 Min/30Min/60Min (Default setting is Unlimited)
This option works with Timelapse Interval, giving you the ability to specify the desired duration of your timelapse video.
- Fast Motion Movie: Off/2X/4X/6X/10X/15X (Default setting is Off.)
This option is available in Fast Motion mode. You can choose the resolution and zoom level before recording fast-motion videos.
- Wind Noise Reduction: Off/On (Default setting is Off.)
When Wind Noise Reduction is enabled, the noise will be lowered to an acceptable level, allowing for better video quality.
- Auto Low Light: Off/On (Default setting is Off.)
The Auto Low Light mode automatically adjusts camera settings to optimize low-light performance, making it ideal for dark scenes and resolutions above 60 FPS.
- EV: -2.0/-1.0/0/+1.0/+2.0 (Default setting is 0.)
Sets the exposure value. The larger the number, the larger the brightness. By default, your camera uses the entire image to determine the appropriate exposure level. However, Exposure lets you select an area that you want the camera to prioritize when determining exposure. This setting is particularly useful in shots where an important region might otherwise be over- or underexposed.
- Sharpness: High/Middle/Low (Default setting is Middle.)
Adjusts the sharpness of the objects in your scene, which is crucial for capturing the fine details and enhancing the overall quality of your photos or videos.
- Fill Light: High/Middle/Low (Default setting is Middle.)
When Fill Light is enabled, the camera captures clear videos in dark light. This makes it perfect for low-light scenes. We recommend you turn off the Fill Light when not necessary.
- Date Stamp: Off/Date/Date&Time (Default setting is Date&Time.)
Sets the camera’s date stamp format. You can set the camera’s date and time according to your local time.
