GoPro switching from video mode to night time burst mode while recording

I purchased my GoPro about a month ago and since I’ve had a variety of problems but this seems to be the most recent. While recording with my camera yesterday it would randomly switch over from video mode to night time burst and shoot a burst of pictures. It did this with me not even touching the camera or doing anything to it, some times it would switch after recording for 30 seconds then other times it wouldn’t switch til it hit 7 minutes. Either way this shouldn’t be happening. I have the Hero 6, it’s updated to the latest software. I’ve had it about a month. I have a recommended sd card. Don’t know what the problem is.

Re: GoPro switching from video mode to night time burst mode while recording

Hello @cartero02

 

I agree with you when you said that these behaviors should not be happening. Did you do a manual update when you updated the camera to the latest firmware? If by any chance you did the update via Quik or GoPro app, try performing a manual update guided by the steps here: https://gopro.com/update/hero6

If the issue persists, you can reach out to our Support team for further assistance. You can connect with them here: https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs

 

Thanks, 
Marius
