I just got a sportcam Ricoh WG-M1, and I managed to understand all settings but one, which seems to be important because it is the first setting displayed. I tried many things but never detected any change in the cam's behavior according to this setting. I read twice the user manual page on this setting (screenshot below), which I did not understand. I even contacted the support service, but they sent me back to the user manual. So I come here to ask: what is it supposed to do?
I was expecting it to allow me to change the default mode between video and photo when the cam is waking up, which would be convenient, but it did not do that.
Here is the page in user manual (page 47). There is nothing more about this setting.
