Hero4 silver back LCD display goes dark while shooting video.

[ New ]

When I shoot video on my Hero4 silver the back LCD display goes dark so that I can't see what I'm shooting.  Is there a way to prevent the display from turning off while actively video recording?

Hi @kenp230

 

Please navigate through your camera's Settings> Tap Display> Sleep then select Never.

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

 

Thanks!

That worked. Thanks. I had that setting confused with the Auto Off setting. Much better to be able to see what I'm shooting.

Cheers,
