QuikCapture function

Is there a way to change the quickcapture default setting : I want the GoPro hero 6 to record time lapse video instead of time lapse photo when I press for 3 seconds like it used to do a couple of weeks ago and not anymore. Same on my Hero Session 5 : it works if I press for 3 seconds it starts a time-lapse video which is what I want. It used to be the same on hero 6 and since a couple of weeks it just starts a time lapse photo and not video ? What have I changed by accident ? How to fix this ?

Thank you for your help

Re: QuikCapture function

Hello @michusa

 

The default modes for the QuikCapture function cannot be changed. For a HERO6 Black camera, these defaults are Video mode (one press) and Time Lapse Photo (long press for a few seconds). The camera default mode can be set to any mode but this only takes effect when the QuikCapture is not used, and the camera is powered on first before any capture. Learn more about it here 

 

Thanks, 

Marius
