go pro video no longer in horizontal plane

Hi

I'm not sure what has happened her but all my videos ( previously fine) are coming out with a tilt of around 45 or 90 degs to the horizontal. I am filming hand movement on a flat desk with the camera sitting on a short tripod. Prior to this I have severeal sequences where the camera is used to manually film activities.

I am trying to correct the video orientation using VLC but the rotation isn't refined enough to permit a 45 degree rotational correction.

Filmin was fine befor and horizontal plane was held steady.

Any ideas please?

Hi @isobelh420

 

Try resetting the camera to its factory settings then format the SD card.

**Make sure to save important files before proceeding.

 

If it's still the same, the next step is to re-flash the software.

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!
