Nightlapse Hero 8 - The camera does not turn off

[ New ]

Hello, i want to launch a nightlapse between 02h00 and 03h00.

The settings for nightlapse (photos) of the Hero 8 are already done. I put in preference; Auto Off: 5 minutes.

The code to start the camera: !02:00N!S3600E

The camera starts well at 2:00 a.m. and takes photos until 3:00 a.m. but it doesn't turn off.

 

I also tried this code: !02:00NoC5!S3600E

But that doesn't change anything, the camera doesn't turn off.

 

Where's the problem ou my mistake ?

 

I would like to thank you in advance for your answer

You are correct, seems to be a bug that the delayed start disables the camera's auto off.

 

The workaround is to add !1O to the end of you command.

 

Your new command: !02:00N!S!3600E!1O
