Re: GoPro HERO5 - Can I turn off the LCD Screen ?

Hi Jeff,

 

Thank you very much for help, will try this option. But unfortunately one minute is very long :( I believe 1-3 seconds is better option (or even turn off display immediately after starting shooting video). Do you know when the updated firmware with this option will be available? Thank you.

Re: GoPro HERO5 - Can I turn off the LCD Screen ?

Great Question @loyalgorge18016.

And @fasttree341 that video is for the HERO4 as of right now. 

But, hopefully this will be an upcoming update feature, like @jefft

said, it is not available right now on the latest update.

I also need to be able to disable the LCD screen. I will be using the Hero 5 Black to record from on a live stage. I need to turn off the LEDs, Sound, and LCD screen so that they are not a distraction. This was easy on the older GoPros. Not being able to do that on the 5 is a show stopper (literally).

I also need this option! Please, it is simple to develop. Please add an option to turn off lcd in one button mode or turn it off after 0/1/5 sec.

Re: GoPro HERO5 - Can I turn off the LCD Screen ?

Yup, there just has to be an option to switch rear LCD off until we want to use it again. There's no reason for it to stay on or even blink during remote triggering, or long timelapse for example.
cheers,

I second a shorter option as screen on time is a huge battery killer.

And lift that block on aftermarket batteries! That was a selfish move.

Re: GoPro HERO5 - Can I turn off the LCD Screen ?

In my opinion it is not only about screensaver delay. There is reason to have option of switching off the touchscreen completly and be able to operate only using front LCD or remote. When i use the camera to take photos from the distance i really don't want rear LCD to do anything - eat battery or even blink without the reason. On my old GoPro it was no problem with using it even in complete stealth mode.
