How to get Protune back on GoPro cameras

One frequent GoPro Protune question we get is:

How do I get Protune back on my GoPro Camera?

Protune is an advanced feature available for all GoPro Hero Black Edition models, as well as the GoPro Hero Session, GoPro Fusion, and GoPro Max 360° cameras. Protune for example allows you to adjust:

  • Shutter time.
  • White balance temperature.
  • ISO value.
  • Color profile (GoPro, flat).
  • Exposure compensation.

Some time ago GoPro decided to remove all Protune features from their GoPro Quik app. The GoPro support forums are filled with questions such as “Where did the Protune settings go?“, “Where is Protune on the GoPro?“, “How do I access Protune?“, “Why did GoPro remove Protune?”, …

The Protune settings are still accessible directly on the camera but it is often more convenient to change the settings on a bigger phone screen than fumbling around on the camera. This is especially true for the small GoPro Hero 4 Session and GoPro Hero 5 Session cameras.

Luckily two alternative apps exist which bring back Protune:

  1. The Camera Tools app is available for all GoPro Hero 5, 5 Session, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Fusion, Max, and newer camera models. The app uses energy efficient Bluetooth BLE.
  2. The Camera Suite app works with GoPro Hero 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 cameras and uses WiFi.

Another advantage of both apps compared to the GoPro Quik app is, that both the Camera Tools and the Camera Suite apps are available on Android, iOS, and also on desktop platforms macOS, Windows, and Raspberry Pi.
