GoPro HERO4 Session v1.50 Scripting - Advanced Users Only!

Posted by Mark Kirschenbaum on

GoPro removed autoexec from v.1.50 of the GoPro HERO4 Session. Some people have been asking us for this functionality again. Re-implementing autoexec would be a huge undertaking and therefore we looked for a different solution. After some digging, most of the functionality is available as part of the calibration routines. Simply create a 'cal.txt' file and place the lines: _tapp <test app command> for your script. For instance cal.txt to set usb mode to msc looks like: # HYPOXIC https://github.com/hypoxic/hero4-session _tapp test led force 1 1 0 _tapp test led force 1 0 0 _tapp usb msc _buzz  This script...

Posted by Mark Kirschenbaum on

On the latest firmware if the battery is removed with the camera powered on, you may lose your WiFi settings. This will require you to pair the camera again with the GoPro App. Our recommendation is to not remove the battery if at all possible while the camera is powered on. If you do so, its best to make it a quick, assertive pull. We have also seen this sometimes when a customer formats via their computer. In the past this has happened when a customer first connects a GoPro HERO4 to a virgin Mac. This bug was removing our firmware...

What's next from GoPro Inc.?

Posted by Mark Kirschenbaum on

We spend a lot of time working on the interoperability between our products and GoPro Cameras. In doing this we uncover some features that may or may not make it into future products. Here are some of the bigger points: Micro Four Thirds Camera We foresee GoPro Inc releasing a Micro Four Thirds Camera in early to mid 2016 and expect them to try to compete with some of Black Magic's smaller offerings. This will be basically a souped-up GoPro HERO4 based upon the Ambarella A9 processor with detachable lenses, ability to set bit rates, white balances, etc.  SDK / Maker...
