I upgraded from a Hero 3 to an 8 and notice a lot of changes on it. What are the best settings to use for filming hunting in the field?

Not much info on the newer gopros on here so gonna bump this one up. I'm getting my 8 in today and wondering what everyone else is running for settings also.

Curius why you bought a almost 3 year old camera with technology changing as fast as it does these days. Just the money? Can get a 10 for 350 $$ right now that includes a 1 year subscription to Gopro. Or is there something you really like about the 8 over the 10?

Nah just the money savings. It does what I need. I researched for a while and cost difference for features I wouldn't use didn't make sense really....

Yeah since the Seven Black edition they really haven't changed much.
I leave my camera on the wide lense with pro tune most of the time. 1080p at 60fps. It's faster to upload that way, but you can still use the slow motion, and grab pictures from the video. You can change color and filters of your videos after you take them in the GoPro app on your phone if you like. Best investment would be a cheap foam cover it cuts out wind noise but you can still all the other sounds fine . You can get them in Amazon on eBay

I will have to grab one of them when I get a few more batteries. Another benefit of ordering it used is I got a TON of accessories with it, I think that remote will be pretty handy for hunting.

I'll second 1080 and wide or ultrawide mode. I use 5 min loop mode to eliminate clips of just scenery. Also check out the "Sportsmans Mount" which allows you to mount the camera on your shotgun. I used it when I was spearfishing a lot in a past life but wouldn't dare put it on my shotgun and record all those misses :)
