Re: foto of myself using vocal command

It could be the case, @swiftwater12101. If the camera shoots looking directly at or facing the sun, the sensor compensates for the direct sunlight, removes the sunglare resulting to a darker/darkened foreground. You might find the tips discussed on this thread helpful when shooting with direct sun exposure. Cheers!

Re: foto of myself using vocal command

wow that is a first  I heard.

 

take a photo by shutter only.  Press mode on once it will go to photo mode, and snap a photo.   turn on voice command and do not say    manually take it with the shutter, then   say take a photo.

 

tell us if it fails or works each way.

 

troubleshooting is what we are doing....  gopro would want you to re flash firmware.

Thanks,

This may be due to the fact that black photos are obtained when shooting against the sun? After transferring the camera at any angle from the sun, the photos are obtained by normal.
