Re: Hero 7 Black Auto rotation

A new one wont fix it!!!. it is implemented into the hero 7 firmware..

instead of actually recording it in the correct orientation (depending on the camera orientation) unlike the old gopros.. the 7 only tells the software playing the footage which way to play it ...ie some older software and hardware wont understand this so if u record it with the camera upside down it will play it upside down...ie my computer media player played all my footage i took on my dirt bike helmet peak upside down, all upside down.. untill i updated it to the latest version .. now it will play back with the correct orientation... i have requested that in a new firmware update that the hero 7 has a manual override to actually record it in what orientation(rather than just tell sortware what way to play it)the way you choose ,so i will be correct no matter what you play back the footage on ..

Should have added, "So you can go out of business since your current HERO6 Black camera owners will have no motivation to upgrade."

Re: Hero 7 Black Auto rotation

same problem here.... no matter what setting i choose in landscape lock , it only affects the screen... if camera is upside down then the footage is recorded upside down.... please check it out in next firmware update because its a major bug...
