FW 1.7 and Cold Weather GP7b

I updated my GoPro7black to FW 1.7 just before a snow trip, since one of the touted features was more information in low temperatures, but on the coldest day (around -10C / 14F) on several clips, the video just stops after less than a second, and audio only continues. Oddly, the file size suggested video was recorded.

 

Disappointed as my old GoPro5 and older HERO 2 HD were both fine in similar situations. Is this as expected (in which case I'll look to source a second hand 5 for snow trips)?

Re: FW 1.7 and Cold Weather GP7b

I hear ya:

 

The Hero 6 is the New GP-1 Chip, the Hero 6 was  better, guess we can say we wanted Hypersmooth and more ram and that can be part ofthe cause?  IfGopro allows us to  desable more features our self the nthe problem be a lot less.
