GoPro Hero 5 Firmware 2.0 Issue

Hi,

 

Just a heads up for everyone who haven't updated to firmware 2.0 and is using an external microphone with GoPro adapter.

 

When recording a movie using the Quick Record mode (tapping record button when camera is turned off), the GoPro is not recording sound from an external microphone. I lost a whole day of shooting because of no sound.

 

Workaround:

If you turn the camera on first and then press the record button, the sounds is recorded.

 

Other issues with 2.0:

- When swiping into playback mode after taking timelapse photos, the camera freezes.

- Sometimes the GoPro freezes for no reason, and can only be turned on by pulling the battery.

- Sometimes the GoPro doesn't turn on, the battery pull fixes that too.

 

For the time being I'll be downgrading to 1.57

 

Cheers everyone.

I found the same issue. Apparently turning off the wifi connection on the gopro solves it.
