I might have missed the option in the plethora of settings, but it seems that there's no self-timer mode on the GoPro 3+. If there isn't, how do you take a "selfie" group shot with monopod?
No, the GoPro Hero 3+ does not have a self-timer mode.
But there are several ways of taking 'selfie' photos:
- You could set the Hero to timelapse mode, ie taking a photo every 0.5, 1 or 2 seconds. Press the shutter, and it will start taking a series of photos. So you can then get in position for the selfie, and it will get a number of photos of you.
- You can do a similar thing in video mode. ie just record a video clip. Then you can get a still photo by taking a snapshot from the video (VLC media player is useful for this). This image won't be as high quality as the photo mode, videos are a bit lower resolution. But probably still good enough for sharing online.
- You could use the camera in standard single photo or burst mode, using a remote control to press the shutter. Either the GoPro Wifi Remote, or the GoPro app on a phone or tablet. Though this means you need to have a suitable remote control, and be holding it while you take the selfie.
Yes there is:
Changing Modes: Once camera is on, quickly pressing the POWER/MODE button will change modes from video mode to self-timer, to photo mode, etc.
