Fusion record time downgraded to about 1h

Hi all,

this is my second fusion after the first had an accident.

 

with the previous one, even when the room was hot, the max i recorded was 2h just because i did not need more video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdX60dnTZyQ

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qj-laz8siaQ

 

the 2h video was with the new beta firmware already

 

with the new one it stops around 1h, i'm using the same cards and the same external power and internal battery

from the tests i made yesterday (with just the battery, without the battery, with both the battery and external power , 5.2k instead of 5.6k) all i got was around 60 minutes then it stops and shuts down

 

this question rised when i was recording a play and turned off the screen and lights (so it would not disturb the audience) and in the end found out it stopped in the middle and i gained confidence in the other one and.. just lost it with this one

 

attached it the screenshot of the goproapp with the tests i made, just add the 7min+the last one

 

dont know it there is anything that can be done but i was expecting the same behaviour if the machine is the same

 

thank you all for your help and time.

Re: Fusion record time downgraded to about 1h

Hi, 

I have 3 128 cards

I've been doing tests bay payring 2 of them each time

by now with 2 of them i manage to make 3k 50fps till filling the card 2 times

with 5.2 and 5.6 never done 

I use it with battery on, without battery, with batterly lid open...

i get half hour, sometimes 1h

i keep formatting and trying to record.

sometimes i dont format

and changing cards

i know that cards can malfunction, as everything. but i use the same cards i did with previous camera and now i added my drone (DJI M2P) because i bought 3 cards and.... i just dont work

i have 2x32gb that came with the camera and i'll test with those since they give 1h rec time

Re: Fusion record time downgraded to about 1h

hi again,

 

i turned off protune and used the 32gb cards

open camera and no battery o managed to record 1h15 (full cards) twice

but other times it went only to 48min , 55min, 60min

 

retried the 128gb cards with combinations beteewn 1 2 and 3 and got sometimes 58, other times about 30min, once i got 17min

 

the thing is "trust"

with the olde camera i managed to record a full play for 2h  (and there was a terrible heat in the room) and i attached it to a helicopter or in a goKart race

and i needed to feel the confidence that it will record

i cant stop the kart race to check if it is recording or land the heli. its awfull

 

the future plans were to put it outside a plane and record gps and other sensors but i haven't made any efforts on that because it would start record and end... before it lifts?

 

i'm a gopro fan (since the hero3 black). if the 2nd 360 version comes out i might give it a go but i have to let this one go.. not good for my health

 

is there a trade in for this? the camera has 3 or 4 months and i  haven't been using it appart from the tests.
