GoPro switches from photo to video under water on its own

Hi there,

 

I recently purchased a GP7B and for the first time, I used it underwater in our pool. 

I was using photo setting and automatically it switches to video or whatever it wants too at any time.

 

Is this normal.

Am I missing something here?

 

Thank you

You need to lock the rear LCD when using the camera in water. If you don't, the water drops get interpreted as touches.
