Stylus for Hero?

I want to use a stylus with my Hero6 because I have problems tapping/swiping at/from the edges (especially when the camera is in the frame or the gimbal). So I tried a couple of different (capacitative) pens I normally use with my tablet/phone etc. but they didn't work.

I am pretty sure that Gopro do not use a resistive screen so a capacitative pen should work (or even a nail for that matter). Anyone here has managed to do it and if so what kind of stylus??

Re: Stylus for Hero?

Hi @lp26

 

I have not tried using a stylus on the camera.

Perhaps other users may have tried this and can share their ideas. Let us watch out for their replies.
