Hero 7 white instructions

Hi.
I’ve just bought a hero 7 white and it came with no instructions. I downoaded the app and I think I’ve paired it to my phone. Now what ?
I’m trying to use the touch screen but can’t fathom it at all.
I set it to camera mode and go to click the top button to take a photo and it says no SD.
Cheers Steve

Re: Hero 7 white instructions

Did you put a SD card in the camera? If yes, what is the make/model/size?

The user manual can be found here https://gopro.com/help/productmanuals

Thanks Daniel.
No sd card in the camera by the looks of it.
Does it need one to operate ?
Should the place I bought it from have mentioned this, or supplied me one ?
Cheers Steve

Hi @spirybeach2263,

 

Yes you need SD card. 

It serves as storage of your photos and videos.

Thanks jay.
That’s a bit disappointing the shop didn’t advise me to get one.

Re: Hero 7 white instructions

Now you know that your camera needs to store the photos and videos somewhere Smiley LOL Don't worry about it, we all have to learn the basics somewhere.

 

Good luck with your new camera and I hope you get some great videos with it!
