Where is horizon lock?

Hi.

 

How and where to enable horizon lock on Hero 8?

 

In video mode and time lapse mode, I didn't see anything related to horizon lock feature.

 

Thanks.

Re: Where is horizon lock?

This function is in app for fixing video instead of recoding. Am I right?

That feature is only for the Max, not the Hero 8. And it happens in-camera, if I'm not wrong

Re: Where is horizon lock?

Hey,

I am also very interested in the horizon lock function with the hero 8 in the app. Does is work properly, like in the Max internally and how much does it crop if the camera is turned upside down 180 degrees? and is it done automatically or manually.

Can anybody try this. If it would work, I would buy the 8.

Re: Where is horizon lock?

Could anybody try the horizon lock fuction on the hero 8 and turn the camera upside down during filming and see how much it crops afterwards in the app?

Thanks

Can't help you. Didn't see ANY FUNCTION related to horizon lock, not in cam, nor in app either.

 

The only thing is, when cam is being rotating, the image displayed in app will rotated in 4 levels. For example, when the cam is rotated 45-135 degrees, you will see the image in app is rotated 90 degrees; when the cam is rotated 135-225 degress, you will see the image in app is rotated 180 degrees. But nothing will be applied to the recored files if the recording is started in cam.
