Re: GoPro Hero 9 upside down with HL and Boost tilted the horizon by 45 degrees

[ New ]

I have exactly the same issue, my chest mount on the bike will only work with the camera upside down but it drifts till it is 45 degrees...

Unlock the orientation and retest.

The orientation was unlocked and boost was off when I shot the video. It seems to be a problem with the HL lens choice.

Hello @davek872 @fyfordf511 @modxuser @superbigtwig

 

This has been shared with the team.

We'd like to gather additional details, please:

  • SD card used (Brand, model and capacity)
  • Camera version
  • Settings used

If you haven't yet, it will also help if you can share a sample file.


Thanks!

Thanks but I haven't seen this issue myself.

I found that this is a problem even without HL on. I took a bike ride today with the Hero 9 mounted upside down. Here are the settings I used in video mode:

 

5K, 24 fps

Lens = Linear

HyperSmooth = On

Bit Rate = High

QuikCapture = On

Orientation = All

 

Sometimes the video would record upside down, sometimes it wouldn't. Do I need to turn Orientation = Locked while it is upside down, perhaps? With HL off, at least I don't get a cockeyed video and this can be remedied by flipping by 180 degs. HL is unusable if mounted upside down.

 

A representative video is located here: https://gopro.com/v/lrPQeKXamzM1E

 

Also notice in the video that the video is garbled around 7 seconds in towards the bottom. Another problem, I know, but nonetheless it is concerning. Anyone else seen garbled video like this?

 

Thanks,

Dave

When I use the camera as a dashcam it's upside down, and opening the media in the GoPro Player (1.0.1.306) on a PC, it's upside down, but opening it with every other mp4 editor/player I have it's fine.

Same issue here, video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHvQjeLdeiY&feature=youtu.be

 

Settings: 4K 60Hz, Linear + HL, Boost
 
I came from the Hero 5 Session which none of this issues...if no fix is available I will have to return the new GoPro
