Hi @boldlight8170

 

Were you able to create a preset?

Set it to Night Lapse then choose between Phot or Video for the format.

Save the preset/s.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!

Hi, I have tried as suggested a preset and unfortunenately still remains on on photo. Also tried a factor reset which made no different.

Hi @boldlight8170

 

When accessing the preset created, do you something that says Night Lapse Video?

Hi Ej

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

Unfortunatley when creating 'Custom' its just says 'Night Lapse Photo' at the top by default and in the 'Format' photo is 'greyed out' and therefore unable to change unlike the rest of the settings.

 

Within 'Night Lapse' or Night Lapse Custom the format setting appears to always be 'greyed out' and stuck on photo.

 

Regards

@boldlight8170, this is odd. When you tap "Format" it should show a slider with "Video" or "Photo" as an option.

Reinstalling the firmware update of the camera can also help correct any errors with the current software installation. Using an SD card adapter, connect your microSD card to your computer and follow the Manual Update instructions specified in this article: https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/How-to-Update-GoPro-Cameras/ta-p/394229


Additionally, performing a factory reset in the camera may help.

Could you tell us what Mode you are on

  • video mode
  • photo mode
  • timelapse mode

then with timelapse mode    at the profiles , chose nightlapse and the pencil.  it could be possible you are on photo mode and nightlapse  photo only.

Hi 

 

Thanks for the reply

 

The 'slider' works for everything but won't change between night photo to lapse video so  I think doing a manual instal may be the answer.
