Filmer en charge

[ New ]

Salut à tous

Hier je voulais réaliser un long timelaspe sur plusieurs heures.

Viens donc le problème de la batterie. J'ai alors branché m'a Hero 8 sur le secteur pour ne pas qu'elle se déchrage.

Seul problème, la GoPro ne prend pas la charge pendant qu'elle filme !

 

Est-ce normal ?

Hello @gillesrg. Yes, even though your camera is charging, the battery will not charge during recording. It will start charging when you stop recording.
 

I suggest removing the battery if you will be using the camera for very long-term shooting (e.g. Timelapse) to prevent the camera from overheating – at some point, preventing potential damage to the battery as well. Other users have expressed similar suggestion when using external power source for continuous recording. 

 

On a side note, without the battery installed, the camera will eventually turn off the moment that the external power stops. 

Heads Up: Because the door is open, your camera is not waterproof when charging.
