Re: Can i change the length of time my session 4 records for?

Good question. Feel free to ask as many as you want!😉

It's normal behavior and you cannot change it. The recording actually does not stop The camera continues recording but creates another file. It will continue don't this ~12 minutes until you stop recording. This is referred to as chaptering and is a result of the FAT32 file system your SD card and the GoPro camera use.
