Hi @chadb566

 

Are you using an external power source?

Please see information on HERO3 Camera Battery-life

 

Thanks!

Re: GOPRO HERO 3 UPDATE

Hello @chadb566. Although the article provides values or a different camera model, the values here on recording time per card capacity per resolution setting used are relatively the same. You may use it as reference.

Re: GOPRO HERO 3 UPDATE

Format the card in the camera
Check that Protune is turned OFF
6 hours and 30 minutes seems pretty long
