It's not broken.

 

Using Quick Capture starts the camera recording immediately before it fully boots up and detects GPS, Camera Orientation, Whether or not there's a media mod or external mic adapter attached.  So it's really a choice, do you want the camera to start recording "immediately" or do you want to turn your camera on properly and let it orient itself and boot up fully first?  

 

If GoPro made a firmware change to quick capture to allow the detection of GPS, Camera Orientation, Whether there's a media mod or external microphone adapter attached... they would have to slow down the whole process of quick capture and they would be forced to call it "slow capture".
