I don't want to shoot 360 with omni rig anymore. However I liked to keep my GoPro hero 4 black and install normal firmware in it. 

Once a Gopro camera has been updated with the OMNI firmware, is it possible to revert it back to have normal camera functions?

Now I can shoot only 4:3

Hello @rikup8

 

Manually update your camera following instructions below: 

  1. Go to the HERO4 update page.
  2. Under "Other ways to update" at the base of the page, click "Update your camera manually."
  3. Enter your Serial Number and other requested information, click Next Step.
  4. Click "Download Update."
  5. Click "Click here to download firmware."
  6. Follow the steps on the screen for detailed instructions for your operating system.

Please note though that once this is done, you will not be able to use the camera with the OMNI rig again unless you install the OMNI firmware to it. Let us know how it goes. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius
