gopro 7 black start/stop sounds

Hi, I want to mount the gopro at my scuba mask and be able to start/stop recording without being able to see the camera (as it will be mounted on the mask). How will I be able to know if the camera has started/stopped recording? Does it make any distinct sound on start/stop recording and more importantly, are these sounds different?

 

Thank you for your feedback!

Re: gopro 7 black start/stop sounds

GoPro cameras make a distinctive beep sound in a pattern to help you know when recording has started/stopped and when the camera is turned on/off.

3 beeps: Camera On (Also for One touch recording "Quick capture")

1 Beep: Recording Started

5 beeps: Recording end

7 beeps: Camera turned off

Although it doesn't seem like much of a difference on paper, it's pretty easy to tell them apart.
