I'm beyond frustrated. I had this problem with the HERO7 Black, and I naively though it would be fixed with HERO8 Black.
Frequently when I'm snorkeling or diving, the camera shifts from video to TimeWarp. Why the **bleep** would I want TimeWarp when I'm snorkeling?! It's as if the water itself is activating this feature, and it means I've lost countless once-in-a-blue-moon moments when I get out of the water and realize, once again, the camera has decided that I didn't really need that shot.
To make matters worse, I've searched every site (including this one) and no one seems to be able to answer this simple question--how can I turn it off

I have the camera on (screen locked on video) when I enter the water. Then I use the capture/record button to start and stop filming clips. I've only had this happen in the water--but it is very consistent across two cameras. Usually the first or first and second clip will be recorded as I want it to be, then it flips into TimeWarp, usually when I'm moving around in the waves. I have the camera on an extending frame, so I'm not touching the camera face, only the record/capture button.

You swiped down chosen Lock screen correct? and then and only then the only buttons will work are the Mode on and Shutter? correct?
guess filling up the sink or a pan is out of the question, and recording your actions on that?
