Not only social media influencers, but motor-bikers and moto-vloggers also love this device. Since this device can be easily mounted in helmets, it is used by them to record their ride for future memories or to put those videos on various platforms.

how to turn off GoPro

Turning off any device is as important as turning it on and using it. Not only does it save your battery, but it also saves your device from glitches and over-heating. Shutting off any device is not so complicated. But that's not the case with GoPro. It does not turn off with a single press; you need to follow a series of steps to do so. This article will provide 3 ways to turn off the different GoPro cameras.

3 METHODS TO TURN OFF GOPRO

These three steps are common to switch off most GoPro's:

  • Voice Commands- Whenever you want to turn off your GoPro, say "GoPro Turn Off." Make sure you switch on "Wake on voice" setting to enable voice control.
  • Manual- Press and hold the mode button for 2-3 seconds; depending upon the model, it will turn off. You will notice the camera beeping and the status lights flashing several times while turning off.
  • Auto Power-off- Your GoPro automatically turns off after a period of 5/10/35 minutes of inactivity. You can choose this time of inactivity in your settings(15 minutes is the default time limit). If you wish to disable this feature, just select "Never" in the Auto power-off function.

Note: Make sure to go through the auto power feature of GoPro Fusion because it is slightly different when compared to other models.

  • Manual- Press and hold mode; it will turn off.
  • Auto Power-off- Your GoPro Hero 7 automatically turns off after a period of inactivity. You can choose the time of inactivity in your settings.

Conclusion

GoPro has always been very pocket-friendly. For all those who cannot afford to buy good camera phones or DSLRs, GoPro works as a blessing. Not only these, but it has also been used as evidence in various court cases. Apart from being pocket-friendly, its size also makes it easy to carry. Please make sure to turn off the voice control before switching off the camera to prevent battery drain. I'm saying this because the camera can hear voice commands for almost 8 hours, even after being turned off. Also, disable "Wireless connections" to switch off the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth features.

There is also a feature called QuikCapture that is by default disabled in most GoPro cameras. This feature will automatically power on the device and record when the shutter/select button is activated. You needn't worry about turning off the device because this feature itself will turn off the camera when it senses no button movement or recording. A lot of users find this feature useful as it actually saves a lot of battery power.

After all these advancements in technology, there is no excuse left for someone who wants to make it big in the industry but lacks resources. All it needs is a will to do.
