This is a feature @greenstorm0212

 

On the HERO7 Black's main screen, swipe down then go to Touch Display.

Tap on Landscape Lock then select your preferred option.

 

 

Thanks!

Re: Hero 7 Black Auto rotation

There is no Auto setting for this it does say off which I'm assuming is Auto but when I play back the videos after recording on my TV or my computer it will playback upside down no matter what I use it on it plays back upside down but it does not play back upside down on the GoPro 7????

Re: Hero 7 Black Auto rotation

I also have a hero 6 and I do not want to have to edit my videos to turn them upside down because the auto rotation will not play... Now on the hero 6 I can turn the camera upside down start recording and it stays like that it's fine and then when I play it back it's right side up like it's supposed to be just like it shows on the screen but the hero 7 that I have just purchased does not do that when I turn the camera upside down and I start to record it shows on the screen that is recording you know right side up but when I go to play it back on my TV or my computer the video is upside down I do not want to edit it and turn it the right side it should automatically be like this just like it is on the hero 6

Re: Hero 7 Black Auto rotation

I had the same problem with my hero 7 and I spent hours on text chat with GoPro support and we did everything we could do even took my chip out of my hero 6 and tried it....we reset everything twice....we tried to reinstall the software manually and still it was doing the same thing so I just ended up taking my go pro-7 back to GoPro..... they offered to take it back for a exchange for a new one so we'll see what happens when I receive my new camera???? Hope they fix this issue!!
