i have ordered the Hero 7 Black from this Website and using the card thats shipped with the camera. The Hero is up to date with the new Firmware and i have tried multiple sd cards now.
Results on a Room with 23° Celsius:
Recording Time before Overhating and Shut Down:
Orignal SD Card Sandisk 32 GB U3: about 15-20 min
Samsung Evo Plus 128 GB U3: about 15 min
Samsung Evo Plus 64 GB U3: about 15 min
Sandisk 200 GB U1 (not on the List): about 25-30 min
(Same cards on the Hero 4 Silver: endles Recording)
This Problem appears on every Recording Format from tried 1080p / 2.7 / 1440p to 4K on every Frame Rate and Codec. The Cards are fully formated. If i use the camera with external Power and no Akku inside, it works without overheating shutdown, but the camera is even to hot to hold your fingers on the front after 10 minutes.

My camera is hot as well after 12 minutes of 4k/60fps rec. The hottest part is a lens cover and battery as well. On the battery you have warning - do not heat up than 60 degree. Some youtuber mesure temp of case by laser and after ~ 50 min was 62 degree. Than emergency shutdown camera software just turn it off. My battery is from not Samsung A..... something.
I use 2 sd cards - Samsung Evo Plus 64GB which is not at the goprofriendly list and sandisk 32gb which they gave me with Gopro.
I am very close to the decision to send it back :( First GoPro, so much money and huge dissapointing......
#GoPro do something.....
