Re: Gopro won't zoom when recording

On my Hero7 Silver I can zoom when recording but not on the Hero 8 Black. Why is this?

I dont quite understand your response. I have 2 Hero's. One a Hero 7 Silver another a Hero 8 Black. On the 7, I can zoom in video record mode. However, I cant do this on the 8. Why did they redact this impoortant feature?

I am happy to post up a video to show you if you want.

Well, I would post the vid if I could but a) this forum wont post up a video from my Mac and b) it wont accept URLs from Dropbox. Pretty shappy interface if you ask me.

Ha! it wont even accept a shared link created by GoPro! I used this https://gopro.com/v/JbkLzqpRd7nDn

Not good that you cant post a GoPro video on the very site that sells and manufactures the device. Very poor GUI.
