Gopro Hero 4 Silver - can't save settings

Hi,

I have updated my Gopro Hero 4 Silver with latest v5 software.

My Gopro won't save my personal settings for each video or photo modes.

When I set up video modes, for example "1080" with 30 FPS & Linear field of view, when I then switch to 1080 Superview and then comes back to "1080", FPS is'nt 30FPS anymore and field of view is "wide" instead of "Linear" as previously set up!

 

This is quite frustrating, last time I used it (in fact 1 year ago ^^), with previous version, it wasn't like this.

 

Can someone help?

 

Cheers,

Is the camera up to date?


 

Yes latest version V5

 

I think I now understand what's wrong (or maybe normal but quite inconvenient):

 

I you are using “1080 Superview”, “linear” FOV isn't proposed.

When you switch to “1080”, you can select “linear” FOV.

But, when going back to “1080 Superview”, because “linear” FOV isn't supported using “1080 Superview”, it is automatically switched to “Wide”.

Then if you come back in “1080” mode, the FOV setting remains "Wide", like it was in superview…!

 

Same applies for FPS. If you select an FPS and switch to a mode that can’t handle this FPS, it will automatically change it and will keep this change even if you go back to previous mode.

 

Personally I would prefer each mode to have its own configuration, but that’s the way it is Smiley Sad

Re: Gopro Hero 4 Silver - can't save settings

Hi @cyrilc1621,

 

Is the camera up to date? I just tested with my HERO4 Silver and I was able to keep the modes selected when changing to different modes or turning the camera on and off. 

 

Best,

Ryan
