Re: Mobile capture app doesn't show linear FOV

Hallo again No of course not. I mensiond the Audioproblem because you get it when using the capture app with wifi. The linear problem is also effective in the app. But as we can read above the audioproblem is not something they can help you with. You can read pretty much about that on internet. The linearproblem ,I still hope that they can solve, but it was not in the last update. And yes I have spoked with the tecnical support. So far no result.

Re: Mobile capture app doesn't show linear FOV

Which microphones do you use for the gopro? Specially interested in the bluetooth one.

Re: Mobile capture app doesn't show linear FOV

Hi Kris. The bluetooth microphone set was the Removu M1 + A1 set. I get it today and so far it works well and no helikopternoise even in full volume. You can also let the A1 sit on the back of the camera and set it to off and then the original microphon take over again. Charging the A1 sitting on the camera also charging the camera, :) Tomorrow I will check if the wificapture app will set the helicopternoise when the A1 is set to off. If it does, next set is to test with just something in the charging port like the usb charging cabel. The wire microphone was a Rollei micropone direct in to the port in the Hero 4 No need for an adapter cabel, and also no noise from the camera. So tomorrow more testing but it is nice for me to have the bluetooth microphone with or without the Capture app.

Re: Mobile capture app doesn't show linear FOV

Hallo again. Sorry if Ihave misslead someone. You have to have the microphone connected to avoid the Helicopter noise. But ok that was one of my goals plus have the camera in front of my boat and have the microfon in a more shelter place to avoid to much vindnoise. Any way, the windscreen (deadcat) wich comes with the package, did a good job here yesterday when it was really windy outside. So I look forward to see howe it works in boat life when summer comes. More on the plus side is that the bluetooth connect in about 1-2 sekunds when you have connected them for the first time wich can take some minits.

Sorry for my english but I am an old guy (63) and do my best.

Regards Svante

LINEAR FOV NOT SHOWING ON CAPTURE APP
 

 

Hiya …

I have the same problem…the GoPro 4 Black cam DOES show the Linear FOV in the actual camera menu, in some settings , AS IT SHOULD , but the Capture app does not show the LINEAR FOV anywhere or under any settings ..anywhere. Neither on PAL or NSTC.

Everything else is fine in the Capture program , except the Linear FOV , not showing .

There is definitely a BUG in the GoPro CAPTURE program for GoPro 4 Black .-

My Capture version is 3.3.1 ( 3955 )

My GoPro firmware version – 5.0

Please , GoPro Support , assist the community solve this problem , at least by admitting the problem and issuing an statement to that effect. We then will know that GoPro Management is doing something about it , don’t just let us - GoPro user community - write about it and do nothing.

Kind regards .

Re: Mobile capture app doesn't show linear FOV

Come on GoPro fix this problem, please.

 

I called support about a week ago and they acted like they had never heard of this issue.  Found this forum and I see it has been an issue for 6 months.  That should have been plenty of time to fix it.
