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

This is clearly a bug as it only happens when using quickcapture. If you start recording normally (i.e. when the camera is already switched on) the screen remains locked.

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

Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.

First and foremost, on behalf of the GoPro Dev Team, I would like to personally apologize for the inconvenience caused by this "issue".

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances there may be a lengthy wait until this option can be added to the firmware.

We value our customers and ask you to please feel free to continue to provide feedback about our services.

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

Come on guys...at least stop bullshi****g and lying, cause we are not all stupid. You prove all the time that you apreciate your customers like we apreciate your competitors, don't give a dam s**t about them!!! don't take advantage of this fact and on the fact that you are still kings of action cameras on the market and we have no choice, 'cause one day the wheel might spin.... We are loyal to your products and we'll still be, as long as we can feel a proper feedback from you in the sense of regular upgrades of your firmware systems concerning our requests or improvements of the softwares/accessories/products based on our feedbacks... But when you guys come out with this statement that it will take forever to implement such an easy feature(which exists in gopro 4), it makes me believe you are interested only to make profit and that makes me wish to see you one day bankrupt (regardless all the pleasures and awesome memories gopro gave me until now). Guys, please understand we are also humans, we have also feelings and sometimes we are doing sacrificies for some products, we are not just numbers and digits in your profit accountancy....

My 2cts here, i actually did return the gopro 5... hoping to go back to it some day when the firmware is completed and better. In the meantime, it's simply not ready!

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

Thanks for listening to us. I unfortunately had to return my Hero 5, but I'll probably get one again if rear LCD will have full off mode. For remote photography it didn't make sense for me how it was. Reading commenter above i wasn't the only one.

By the way there's another thing - since there's bluetooth needed to wake up the camera with capture app - there's one problem: when camera is sleeping or off it won't react to capture app out of bluetooth range - wifi range is not enough. So for remote wildlife photography capture app on smatphone is useless, luckily wifi remote is able to wake up the camera with wifi only.

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

I am also likely to return my hero 5 due to this issue. As someone else said - it's a feature that was available on the hero 4 so i can't imagine it's beyond gopro to provide it on the hero 5.

Those of you that returned your hero 5s - what alternatives are you looking at, or are you sticking with an older gopro?

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

For now I'm just back to my older Hero 3+ and hoping for significant update for Hero5. Than i'll gladly get it again. Gladly, because in terms of photo quality (RAW), there is simply no competition and no alternatives in action cam field.
