Re: Date/time issue with GP Hero8

Is my camera faulty or someone else experiencing tihis issue also?

 

Files showing incorrect date/time. Not in correct order because of that.

 

Even if I set date/time one day and check after few days stays same and not updated.

 

i'm on latest FW


 

 

hi,

I'm sorry that you have this.

 

please read my post from December:

 

https://community.gopro.com/t5/Cameras/hero8-date-time-lost/m-p/501391#/M126975

 

since others started to report this "freeze like" of the date/time at the latest set moment:

 

https://community.gopro.com/t5/Cameras/Time-on-GoPro-8/m-p/503999#/M127385

 

at a moment I thought to sync with my phone before start an activity.

but at the first power off (to change the battery or a normal timeout) the video timestamps will be scrambled.

 

set correct date/time1 ----- timestamps ok, time is ticking corectly ...till you power the camera off.

from now on all timestamps starts with date/time1 which is hours behind.

if you leave as is the camera, after days will be still date/time1, meaning days ago....

 

RMA is the only solution, nothing else works (factory reset, reinstalled old firmware, reinstalled new firmware, ...)

 

 

 

hope this helps,

robert

Re: Date/time issue with GP Hero8

Yes, switch your view to "date created" not "date modified".

Re: Date/time issue with GP Hero8

it's not set by date modified as per screenshot, it's sorted by filename
anyway sorting by date created not solving anything as dates/times are completely wrong

Re: Date/time issue with GP Hero8

I'm using camera UI to set date/time
