I have a new GoPro Black 7 and It is glitchy as. It just crashes, restarts, ro gets stuck in like a 'boot loop' as per the video. It also makes a terriable electrical buzz noise too during this process. I have tried to included a video as to what it is doing, but it won't let me. Is anyone else experiencing the same problems with their Black 7? It has the latest update and it does the same thing with or without the mic adapter connected.
Any help would be appreciated, as it is only 5 months old and is pretty much usless!

Yes, almost everyone has those problems with the Hero 7 Black. There are thousands of examples in this forum alone. A few trolls around here with 10,000 posts are going to blame your SD card, despite the fact that it's the camera itself that doesn't work well. If your SD card is on the approved list, try another SD card from the approved list, If you have two sd cards from the approved list they will say your SD card must be a counterfeit. If you say you bought your SD card at a major retailer they wil then tell you that ONLY your camera is acting up, and that you should send it into gopro for repair, but when you get it back, it will have the same issue! They all have this problem. The camera is garbage. My hero 8 black is slightly better, but still garbage.

Here is the link for the video of what the camera is doing. Hope it works.

@truckasauras, sorry to hear about the trouble. Thanks for providing the video. To help us further isolate the issue, try removing the SD card and do you get the same result when the camera isn't plugged into an external power source?
How about without the camera's battery inserted? You can remove the battery and connect the camera directly to the charger (5V 2A output) using the GoPro USB-C cable.

I did ask that if it was to be replaced, i would rather pay the difference and upgrade to a GoPro 8 as i've read a lot of issues with the 7 Black on here.
What are peoples thoughts on tbe new GoPro 8 Black?
Cheers and thanks for all the replies.
