With Auto Image Rotation enabled, the camera automatically adjusts orientation to right side up when the camera is mounted upside down. Some things to note:
- HERO (2018), HERO6 Black, HERO5 Black, HERO4 Black, & HERO4 Silver: The camera defaults to (right side) UP, so you will need to enable this mode if desired. It can be found in the SETUP menu under ORIENTATION > AUTO
- HERO5 Session & HERO Session / HERO4 Session: The camera will default to AUTO. Using the GoPro App or Smart Remote you to alter the setting to UP/DOWN if needed.
- Auto Image Rotation makes it easy and automated for the user to switch into upside down mode without having to alter the camera settings.
- Once you start recording, the orientation is locked. This way, the camera retains its orientation if it (or you) is flipped during recording.
