QuikCapture not shutting down camera

[ New ]

For my underwater footage I use QuikCapure feature since it saves battery life.

The problem comes when I press quickly the shutter button and Hero 8 says: "closing down" for about 10+ seconds, but

then, after a while, the Hero 8 turn on again! So the battery drain!

 

Any solution?

 

btw some times the closing down process lasts for more time, nearly one minute!

Bugs and issues:

 

a Randon   return on will occure. when the camera is turned off within 5 seconds it cycles to the On. does a 12 sec long press work? or bat removal, and will the bug come back?

 

 for the  header and or hut down 3 seconds tops, the close down can be anywhere from 3 seconds to a minute. gopro needs to  Eliberate on this not us members

 

 you can record for a good 1 minut a 3 second shut down, repeat the same 1 minute does it do a 3 sec each time,  do a 5 second record and you get a longer shut down  . something to try. and figure out to avoid these    shut downs.

Your answer is meaningless to me!

I don't catch a word of what you wrote!

Any other could help?

Thanks.

Leave the camera on for at least 2 minutes before trying to shut it down with quick capture.

 

Make sure you only press quick capture button once quickly and do not hold down the button.  Holding down the button will power on the camera again.

You mean I should leave the camera on recording for 2 minutes? As you know when using quikcapture once you press the button it starts recording!

I know this, indeed I try to press as quickly as possible. Then the camera shows the 2 rotating circles "shutting down" then it actually it power off, but after a while it power on again by itself!
