How to turn off Hero 5 Session?

I can't find a straight answer on this question anywhere. If I just hold down the capture button for a few seconds, does that do it?

@taemissmess - With the HERO5 Session, it will turn off automatically as soon as you stop taking a photo or video. There's nothing you need to do to turn it off.

 

Thanks,
Jeff

Re: How to turn off Hero 5 Session?

Unless, of course you have a gopro app connected with Wifi  on. then you first need to turn off the wifi

Re: How to turn off Hero 5 Session?

Please allow me to quote from Hero 5 Session Users manual page 72 (page no refers to English manual):

HOW DO I TURN OFF MY CAMERA?

If HERO5 Session is not connected to Capture or a GoPro remote, it powers off automatically after you stop recording.

When your camera is connected to the app or remote, tap the Power icon in the app or press the Power/Mode button on the remote to turn off the camera. Wireless remains on.

If your camera goes out of range of the app or remote, or you close the app, press the Menu button to display Turn Camera Off, then press the Shutter [ ] button to select it. Wireless remains on.

To turn off connection and power off the camera, press the Menu button, press it repeatedly to display Turn WiFi Off, then press the Shutter button to select it.

Re: How to turn off Hero 5 Session?

   well you ask such a basic question and want the World Lol

 

 

 if voice command is on you say gopro turn off done

 

but if you  had wi-fi on  you have to turn it off, period.

 

If you  feel the camera warm after a few min's then its on standby so you will have to  turn camera on and  press back button five more times to turn wifi off and  when you press exit it will shut down.
