Hero 8, vid plays on fast forward. not in time lapse or time warp also Battery dies after 30 mins.

[ New ]

How do I turn all this other BS off and just have video??? nothing but issues with hero8... device is a  C- at best...

 

1 video plays normal, 1 on fast forward.  I never touched the camera, it was suppossed to record continueously, yet I have multiple videos from todays race.  No Sound. Not on time lapase or time warp mode.. Video import says Video..  also the batteries die in 30 mins or less. I have 4 new ones and life is crap.. Can I turn off all features but video?  It there a better battery?  Also importing to PC should be easier...Plug in camera does not work. Have to take out sim card and load that way.. As of now, this is the worst video camera I've ever owned.

Salut,

 

Afin d'économiser la batterie, tu peux en effet désactiver le GPS, le WIFI, et baisser la luminosité de l'écran arrière à 60%.

Il ne faut pas oublier que lorsque la GoPro est utilisée dans le froid, la durée d'utilisation de la batterie baisse.

Pour empêcher cela, protège tes batteries du froid, en les portant près du corps, dans une poche intérieur de ta veste par exemple.

 

Quand au fait que tu trouves plusieurs fichiers vidéos, à la place d'un seul, il faut savoir que la GoPro fractionne les gros fichiers vidéos en deux ou trois parties, suivant la durée d'enregistrement. C'est normal.

I had this same problem skiing last night.  All my videos are in time lapse(fast forward, no sound)  I swear the camera was set to Video mode and not time lapse.  Some short videos are normal playback with sound.  Some are Fast Forward.   All I did was hit the red button on the top of the Hero8 to start and stop the recording.  WTF?  Anyone have any idea what could be going on?

 

If I had it set to time lapse why would it switch to normal video for some and then go back to time lapse?  Maybe hitting the mode button on the side switches it without knowing?

 

Anyone have thoughts on this?
