Cambio de modo al sumergir cámara

Buenas compis,

Hace un mes estrené la gopro hero black 7.
Y hoy me ha apetecido meterla en la piscina.

El problema radica cuando sumerjo la cámara esta detecta el agua como si un dedo deslizara la pantalla, y cuando la meto bajo del agua entra en la galería de fotos, o pasa el modo de foto a video, etc...

Saben si esto es normal?

Sé que existe el bloqueo de pantalla, pero no sé si cada vez que meta la cámara bajo del agua voy a tener que estar bloqueando la pantalla.

Gracias <3

Re: Cambio de modo al sumergir cámara

Hi @adrianob01,

I personally experience the same thing. I reckon this is pretty much comparable to other devices using touch display.

 

The touch display screen is sensitive and doesn't work well when exposed to water or submerged underwater.

 

The best way to prevent the GoPro camera from changing settings / modes when using it underwater is to enable the Screen Lock.

 

Kind Regards,

Ann

Re: Cambio de modo al sumergir cámara

a touch screen is not to be used in the water it is  not a gel screen that can be used in water.     your smartphone will do the same.  so lock your screen then use the Mode On to switch and go into settings,

 

try wetting your finger above water and  try t otocuh you wil lsee the screen is  unusable if wet.
