Hi 

when using the chest mount and putting the camera upside down 

why will the screen not rotate when playing back??

Re: hero black 7 rotation issues

Hello @moonman

 

Was the Landscape Lock Off, Up, or Down? If you had it on Up and the camera was positioned upside down while recording, this could be why the playback was in upside down, too. Let us know if this is not the case so we can assist you further. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius

Hey Marius 

i think that’s sorted it, thanks for your help. 

Would this be the reason it would not save it and let me play on my Mac 

i didn’t have any problems with previous models 

I’ve had the 3 and 5 black now

regards

No the screen stays in the same position and does not rotate
