Hero 8 switches settings under water[ New ]
Just got back from another snorkling trip. My Hero 8 kept switching settings immediately after coming in contact with the water...again. First in Thailand and now in the Florida Keys. I'm not sure if it's a salt water issue but I think it might be.
I tried switching between every single setting including altering the presets. No dice.
I was able to make adjustments as soon as I surfaced but as soon as I submerged, the camera would swtich to a random setting, the screen would flip upside down, the touch screen and buttons were completely unresponsive.
Is this a firmware thing or does the 8 require a case when in salt water. I'm thinking the case.
