TECH TIP TUESDAY #28- "OH S*%T!" Using Voice Commands For Hands Free Control

One of the neat features with new action cameras like the Garmin Virb Ultra 30 and GoPro 5/6, is that most of their functions can now be activated by simple voice commands. This is great for those times when your hands are full (eg fish on, or maybe you're kayaking), or wet, and you don't want to be fumbling with camera buttons or mobile phones, remotes etc.

All the major camera functions are covered like starting a video, taking a photo etc, and both Garmin and GoPro allow you to tag highlights in your video by using commands like "Remember That" (Garmin) and "GoPro HiLight" (GoPro). And yes, the GoPro will even tag your clip whenever you say "Oh S*%T"!

The voice commands are simple to use, and free up your hands for other tasks. Check out your manual for full details, but you can get started easily-first make sure that voice commands are active in your camera settings, then simply say "Ok Garmin/GoPro, start recording". For an even better voice command experience, check out the GoPro "Remo", which extends the range of voice commands, as well as allows better voice recognition in noisy/windy environments.
