Scanning Your Code

scanning Whether you scan a QR Code from a laptop screen, a mobile phone, or a piece of paper, the code should be a minimum 1.5"/4cm in size with the camera about 6"/15cm away. The larger the QR Code, the easier it is to scan. Point the camera at the center of the code, hold it still for about a second. With each successful scan the LED will flash twice. The camera will now be in the mode you have selected.

  Overclock Bitrate:     
     Warning: The only risk is SD card encoding reliability, as this capture is thoroughly tested at the default bitrates, up to 100Mb/s. Some SD cards can support higher bit-rates when fairly new, but then may fail when extensively used. As the bit-rate is increased, the probability of capture failures increase. Lower frame rate maybe more reliable than higher framerates as some extreme overclocks. Experiment extensively before using this feature on critical projects. You can also disable LRVs and audio capture to help push the video bitrate to the maximum. See more on these Labs extensions. Changes can be reversed with a Labs reset. This will not damage your GoPro.
