ive been using a session 5 since some time last year but i recently upgraded to a hero7. i dont think ive really got to test them out in any low light situations yet, i usually dont bother trying to capture anything after 5 but thats mainly because my android ends up blurring at that point.
i have a feeling that the gopro photos would hold up a lot better though. there have been a few times where photos looked really dark (going past a bridge or tree, or with the sun facing into the lens) but ive been able to brighten up the shadows in lightroom so that the photo is still usable. if i try to do the same with photos from my phone they usually look a bit funky, but still better than nothing
it must be a swedish thing. i use “reason” (music software) which is made by a swedish company and they seem hell bent on only releasing apps for the second largest phone market, ie the iphone
the battery is not much of a problem as i stated above.
yea i suppose theres chance the gps might not be the best but at least theres the option of using an external bluetooth gps. i bought one when i started mapillary first because the order of photos were being messed up with the internal gps, but it was well worth the money in the end and i wouldnt switch back. it stops your phone battery from draining as much and you can program some useful tasker commands around it like recording a gpx track any time its turned on etc etc …and the obvious stuff like its more accurate
compass direction has never worked for me on any phone but it an easy fix in the editor later on
