I have to remove the battery a lot (Hero8)

[ New ]

I use the quick capture mode frequently and on my last two weekend trips I have had to remove the battery to reset the camera several times a day in order to get the thing to turn on or the quick capture to recognize the button press.  It's a fast fix, just pull the battery out a few millimeters and push it right back in, but it is annoying. 


Anyone else having this issue? 


Can GoPro address this in a firmware please?

Hi @teamdeis

Once done reset the camera to its factory settings.
