Re: New hero 5 black issues: audio & video with still

Yeah, they should make it so short press = the camera's set default mode. Long press = video.

 

This way, you can set the default to say photo, but you can still shoot video by doing a long press.

 

Even better would be fully customizable QuikCapture settings. One menu for short press, one menu for long press.

 

Wind mode seems to work fairly well.

I'm all for the custon option, to me I don't understand why that would be tough to do. 

 

As far as the audio the first cam I had didn't auto switch and was mutred on one of the clips.  The second one seems to work correctly and automatically switch modes but the difference in the sound is obvious.....I'll just use wind mode in the future.

 

GP swears that they sent me a new camera but the replacement cam's serial number is lower than the one I bought from B&H, so I think they are FOS on that one.
