Despite the miserable weather I decided to at least do some capturing after hauling 5 cameras, albeit with one.
Mounted in the car (humidity and suction cups are a meh pair), I first paired the camera with the app via BT (seems to be the preferred way), and then connected via wifi. So far so good.
However, after pausing and later restarting a sequence the camera stopped making beep sounds on capture. The preview was also constantly gray, although the app was showing image nodes being captured. It looks like nothing was in fact captured. Upon closing the app and trying to reconnect I noticed that the camera was no longer discoverable, and had to restart it.
Has anyone else had similar experience? Is it the app that is failing to keep the gopro from disconnecting (they mention gopro integration not being tested since gopro hero 4 in the KB)? Or is it the GoPro that loses the connection? Or could be my phone…
UPD: huh, just reviewed the images in more detail and looks like the camera stopped capturing even earlier than I initially thought. Quite disappointing. Don’t think it’s overheating since the battery was out
