Hopefully Gopro will fix this soon.
They know about the issue for months now....
For now the 7 black is a downgrade for me.
Do you think they will fix this issue?

Re: Hero 7 Black Auto rotation

Orientation is set when you start recording. If your Gopro is upside down when you hit the record button. Your footage will playback correctly. I don't see why this is never explained when these issues come up

Re: Hero 7 Black Auto rotation

I've posted my question in a new topic.

I should have explained my issue better is this topic though...


I quess my new topic shows the "issue" even better. I added several images.

You can watch it here: The topic I started


My questions still are:


- Why can the image be correct on the lcd display of the gopro 7 black, while filming, and why isn't it (i.e. on the same display) while playing?

- Several youtube video's about the "gimbal effect" do show a steady horizontal horizon. How can I get this effect on the footage?


Thank you!

Re: Hero 7 Black Auto rotation

I bought GoPro Hero 7 Black, have the same problem with upside down video recording..


I do not get to "Down" or "Up" options.

When I chose Touch Display > Landscape >off/On, I do not see any options for down/up.

Can someone guide me through?

When it is turned off you'll be able to use portrait mode and landscape.


When landscape lock is on you'll be allowed to use landscape mode.
