Tagging on Multiple cameras. Hero 5 onwards

I have owned a Hero 5 black for a while now and just purchased a Hero 7 black. When using the GoPro Smart Remote I have noticed I can’t tag video when connected to multiple cameras! Is this the case??

Re: Tagging on Multiple cameras. Hero 5 onwards

Actually, I can't find the documentation, so I could be wrong. If I get a chance I'll try it with my cameras and smart remote. I seem to remember this coming up before and the conclusion was that you could not initiate a HiLight on all the cameras simultaneously, but since I can't find this documented, I can't say for certain. Sorry.

@stuartw44532, yes this is correct. Tested this out on HERO5 Black, HERO6 Black and HERO7 Black cameras. Anytime you pair more than one camera to the Smart Remote, you are going to be able to turn the cameras on/off, change modes, and start/stop recording. The additional features are not going to be available, even if all of the cameras are the same model. Hopefully this helps!

Thanks for that. It’s a shame as GoPro still advertise this as a function for cameras with the ability to tag clips. Anyhow, at least I know my gear isn’t faulty, Cheers.

@stuartw44532, you should still be able to create HiLight Tags using the Smart Remote as long as it is only connected to a single camera.

 

Feel free to post back if anything else comes up. Stay stoked, and have fun capturing moments using your GoPro!

Yes, I realised that but I mainly use my remote when I use multiple cameras which renders the tag function inoperable, bummer.
