GOPRO5 - Sesion

Hello,

I have just bought 3 GOPRO5 SESION cameras, with the most important option of performing Time Laps with an interval of 0.5 s, and it turns out that the function does not work properly !!!! Pictures are taken every 0.65 seconds. Considering that these are sessions of a few hours the difference becomes problematic. I'm disappointed and feel cheated. Until now, I used the GOPRO6 camera and there were no problems with Time Laps 0.5. I suggested the description of GP5 Sesion, which gives the same parameters taim laps 0.5, 1,2 5 ..... I bought GOPRO5 Sesion and are practically useless !!!!!!
It's not allowed to cheat customers !!!!

Hi @spiryoasis1412

 

 

The camera has the Time Lapse Photo and Time Lapse Video options.

Available intervals for Time Lapse Video are 0.5 (default), 1, 2, 5, 10, 30, and 60 seconds.

 

For additional information, please check the camera's manual, page 46.

You may change the settings through the camera or through the GoPro app.

 

Thanks!

Hahahaha....

 

I'm sorry, but you do not appreciate my intelligence. I tested all settings. I am writing about the fact that 5 Session camera has a different soft, definitely worse and therefore can not cope with the interval of 0.5 s. GP 6 works perfectly and makes a division of 0.5 s

 

Please contact specialists if there is the same problem in your cameras.

Hi @spiryoasis1412

 

My apologies for the confusion.

This has been forwarded to the team n charge.

I will post back on this thread as soon as i get an update,

OK thank you :-)

I hope that you only need to upgrade the software without changing the cameras.
I am waiting for information.

Re: GOPRO5 - Sesion

OK, great! @spiryoasis1412 you have an answer! It has been forwarded to the team n charge.

Done.

If there is an update, and that's a big IF (GoPro is no longer selling the Hero5 Session so it's probably not a priority), you will not see the update for a few months. IF there is an update, it will most likely come around October. IF that update does come, it MIGHT address your issue.

This isn't going to be addressed today or tomorrow. It might never get addressed. It might, so I'm not saying it wont. However, it is VERY UNLIKELY that an update will come anytime soon.

I hope you understand this. You do not need to make more post or threads about this.

Re: GOPRO5 - Sesion

In that case, let GoPro return the money. He cheats customers and does nothing about it. Handing over to the team does not mean settling the matter. Such behavior is a scam
