I have the same issue. I bought gopro 5 few days ago. Camera is fixed on the roadbike upside down. I use quick-capture mode to start time lapse photos. 70% of photos are autorotated and rest is not
Camera has the latest software update
Any solution for this?

@barryboy1952 - The orientation of the videos is locked in with how the camera is positioned when the camera starts recording. Even so, it's a simple fix in Studio or other editors to flip the video around when you want to.

Let me see if I understand this..
I bought a camera that is suppose to auto rotate, which means, regarldess of what angle the image is shot at, it will keep the level upside right.
For example, on my helmet the camera wont mount on the top, it has to be mounted just off centre, on an angle..
Keeping auto rotate in mind, if the camera is turned on in this position the image when played back should be level..
It isn't, auto rotate does nothing, it appears to be an option that literally does nothing.. I just blew $15 on a mount for the helmet that does nothing because the camera as it turns out can't capture video on an angle.
And don't say it can be edited, Auto rotate means jus that, it doesn't mean, well, you can edited later...

The Auto Rotation feature does work. If the camera is mounted upside down it will record and play back right side up. If the camera is started at one orientation and then flipped it will keep the original orientation, and will not flip during play back.
To clarify the camera only auto rotates for right side up and upside down. It will not correct for footage that is shot at an angle. If you are having issues with up and down auto rotation then make sure the feature is on. If it is and you are still having trouble make sure the camera is up to date.
Hope that helps!
