Session 5 switches between video, photo burst, and time lapse every time I turn it on and off

I just received a Hero 5 session.  Every time I use the shutter button to turn the camera on and off, it switches between video, time lapse, and photo burst.  I am not holding the button down for 3 seconds.

Hi @rockyshore40374

 

 

Pressing the shutter button while the camera is turned off activates QuikCapture

What SD card are you using?

I suggest doing a manual software update if the camera is behaving differently.

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!
