cannot lock Orientation

HI Guys, i got my GoPro Hero8 and

i'm not having any luck locking orientation so my videos always record upright even if i turn the camera upside down.

when I go to Preferences, Touch Screen and orientation, my options are (ALL)  which is not changeable and on the bottom has (Landscape) which is in blue but when i click on it it just takes me to another setting but its just also Landscape. I tried to follow a video off youtube where the guy was showing how to change but in his video it says (orientation Up)  mine does not. any idea on how I can change that setting?

thank you.

Hi @hrsoto


Please see if resetting the camera will help.  Reset Camera Settings
If it's still the same, proceed with a manual software update.
Let us know how it goes.
