Is there any chance of an upgrade to allow a loop and forward mode.

it would then loop but CONTINUE to record until stopped.

Re: Is there any chance of an upgrade to allow a loop and forward mode.

@rickter111, this is currently how looping works in GoPro cameras. The max setting means that the camera will continue to record until your SD card is essentially full.

 

We do not have any further information if and when changes to this feature will be made. You can check the Software Update Release Information article from time-to-time for any update.

 

Let us know if you have any further questions.

Not my hero7. You press rec to start, then when you press rec again, it captures the video and then stops recording. It would be nice if it would continue to record until stopped to avoid missing upcoming action.

@rickter111, were you on Looping Mode? Or the regular Video Mode? The camera has a one-record button at the top (Shutter Button). Press it once to start the recording, then press it again to stop the recording.

 

To my understanding, are you looking for something like a "pause" option when recording?

Yes I, was on looping mode.    What would be a great feature is when looping, is when you push the record button the second time, the recording goes back and captures the looped time, but then continues to record from then and forward until you press record a third time... 

 

Currently the recording stops on the second button push.

@rickter111, you may refer to this article for more details about the Looping feature in GoPro cameras. Your suggestion is very much appreciated though. I'll pass this along to our team. Feel free to post back if you have any further questions.
