Does anyone use a GoPro for observations? Does anyone have tips and tricks for using a GoPro with iNat? I’m specifically curious about using the cameras for underwater nature observations, but also curious if others use them in other ways on iNat.
I haven’t done it myself but I’ve thought about doing it and am also curious.
Here are a couple relevant threads from the past:
I’ve used them for underwater observations:
For good images they tend to require some photo editing due to the light loss and color changes under water.
I have one and it worked really well underwater. I haven’t used it for observations, mostly because I forget to charge it or forget it last minute. But really good underwater, and better than my phone in the air. I like it because it is so simple to use underwater. Only two buttons and you don’t even have to take it off your head.
I uploaded several GoPro derived observations on the sec_research account. I imported the videos in Lightroom, used the “Capture Frame” button to take stills, and uploaded the stills to iNat. The process is described in this thread: https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/how-to-maintain-metadata-when-screen-shotting-video-observations/9114
