I have had my Osmo Action for some time, I just noticed yesterday that apparently, you can't switch screens while recording.

Is this correct? That's a BIG oversight, IMO. I'm doing a comparison review between the Osmo Pocket and the Osmo Action attached to a lightweight gimbal, and this one feature ommission is almost crippling the Action/Gimbal combo.

To switch between screens, press and HOLD the Quick Switch button on the left side of the camera.

I know that, but when I try to do that whilst recording, I get a message that I need to stop recording in order to switch screens.

I thought this was fixed in the last firmware update:
  • Date: 2019.08.06
  • Firmware: v01.05.00.10

What’s New?
  • Added ability to switch between front and rear screen in Slow Motion.
  • Added ability to switch between front and rear screen in all modes without interrupting recording.

I also seems that double swipe on the back screen, and voice commands don't work at all now to switch screens, whilst recording. Nice going, DJI, way to cripple your product by taking away functionality.

Definitely does not work for me with latest firmware.

Why would DJI do this? Why take features away?

Well, if an when the release the external mic, they will probably disable the internal mic (g)
