Why is there a delay when shooting in burst mode with the Hero4?

I have the Hero4 black and there is a delay when shooting in burst mode. Very frustrating. Is there a solution? Is there a way to get the camera to fire a burst when the shutter is pushed?

Hello @loyaljump61648

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble. Has this always been the case? The delay must really be and extended time for it to be noticeable. But this is not an expected behavior for the camera. I just tested with the same model an the camera responded upon pressing the Shutter button. If you have not done so yet, do a manual update of the camera while making sure that you are using a recommended SD card. You can follow the instructions under Manual Update in this article

 

Let us know how it goes. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius
