Hi @chadb566

 

Are you using an external power source?

Please see information on HERO3 Camera Battery-life

 

Thanks!

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.

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