Gopro hero5 quick capture

Is hero5 quick capture mode only applies to a well lit environment?

Re: Gopro hero5 quick capture

Quick capture just means that you only have to press the shutter button to both power on the camera and start recording.  When Quick capture is off, you must first turn the camera on by using the side power (mode) button and then press the shutter to start recording.

Re: Gopro hero5 quick capture

Ive conducted a series of test in a well lit area vs a non well lit area. Some of the shots i made using the quick capture in a non well lit area are "unable to view" and the camera is "stucked up" on the feature as compared to the shots i made in a well lit area. That is why i came up with a conclusion that quick capture mode might only work in a well lit area/outdoor.

Re: Gopro hero5 quick capture

What SD card are you using? "Unable to view" doesn't make sense unless the camera is having a hard time powering up and starting to write to the disk. I don't understand what "stucked up" means, sorry. If your saying the quality isn't as good, it might be because you are using auto low light and the camera doesn't adjust the fps for low light as well with Quick Capture. I always set my fps to my environment so I'm not sure if auto low light and quick capture work well together or not. Your fps shouldn't be anything higher than fps 30 for low light so if you are using anything higher, try it again but with 30 or 24 fps.

Re: Gopro hero5 quick capture

Not sure what you are experiencing but it may lead to   re flashing firmware. but before i do anything I make sure I get to support and let them know about your issues you are  having

 

QukCapture should not stop you from viewing playback video shot that you never told us what resolutions and frame rate, as well as the smartphone you're using.  get your information straight and let us know before we all  guess  as posted here.  OI am not perfect but you get a  half answer to a half question   good luck
