At what temperature will the Hero8 Black begin to fail?

[ New ]

I am working on a project that involves engines in a testing unit and I am tasked with recording results. My concern is the temperatures the testing unit reaches and how long the camera can sustain operation in them. Does anyone know or notice at what temps a Hero8 can withstand without damaging or failing?

Hi @tuckers883

 

Please note that we do not have a formal, low-temperature rating for any of our cameras or accessories/mounts.

 

If the camera gets too hot, a message appears on the screen indicating that the camera is shutting down. The camera stops recording, saves your video, disconnects from the GoPro Quik, and powers off. If this happens, let your camera sit and cool before attempting to use it again. 

 

Thanks!
