Re: Go Pro 8 Black

@adeptflame80481 - What Fishy wrote sounds like what may be happening. If you power on the camera by pushing the shutter button on top of the camera, it goes into QuikCapture mode and starts recording. If you want to use the full features of the GoPro, press the Mode/Power button on the side of the camera to power it up.
