GoPro Hero 6 Black Drive-Lapse Interval Comparison



Last year I made a video comparing different intervals when creating a drive-lapse (Driving Timelapse) with the Hero 5 Black. I decided to make an updated video using the Hero 6 Black as it is summer time and there are going to be many hitting the roads and adventuring this summer. This is a good resource to see how different intervals effect the look of your finished drive-lapse. In the test video I used intervals of .5 second, 1 second, 2 second and 5 second. You will notice in the video that the .5 second and 1 second intervals are most appealing and pleasing to the eye. The 2 second and 5 second intervals can look a bit jumpy.

With that said, there is definitely some uses for the higher intervals. For example if you are going on a long road trip and want to time-lapse it, using a low interval will leave you with a very long video when your done. A 5 second interval will leave you with a much more dramatic video that is shorter and won’t bore you viewers.
