GOPRO HERO 6 VIDEO RECORDING PROBLEMS

I got the hero 6 recently and while i did some timelpase photo, i had no issue. But when i decided to video record ( 1080/240fps) i could see thru the display that it was lagging, when i moved fast, the display was responding slow. So i decided to record again, and the samthing happened. I could see that something was wrong, so i decided to change the frames per second and i recorded 1080/120fps and also 1080/60fps. Later when i looked at all videos at the gallery, all of them had the same problem. The video is lagging, sometimes some lines gets blurry and also, some weird and fast black shadow appears at the top right of the video, quickly it dissapears.

Version: 1.01 ( i didnt update because i saw that the new firmware is having more problems)

Any help? What should i do?

Obs: i won the camera as a gift. It came from U.S and i live in Brazil

Re: GOPRO HERO 6 VIDEO RECORDING PROBLEMS

What SD card are you using? Make/Model/Size
What computer OS do you have and what are your computer hardware specs (processor, graphics card, memory, hard drive)?
Finally, what are you using to play back the files?

Re: GOPRO HERO 6 VIDEO RECORDING PROBLEMS

Sd card: sand disk extreme 64gb

My computer is windows: the specs its a dell, 8gb ram, 1tb ( 500gb ssd external drive), geforce gtx960m * but i didnt upload the videos to the pc yet. I did not see the videos thru the pc

I saw the videos thru the camera gallery, the camera itself

Re: GOPRO HERO 6 VIDEO RECORDING PROBLEMS

I noticed this too, but when playing the video on the computer, it is fine. 1080p240 is a heavy duty mode, so they probably cannot preview this mode on the LCD at full speed.

Re: GOPRO HERO 6 VIDEO RECORDING PROBLEMS

Now, that i got home, i decided to play the videos on my computer. My gopro studio did not run any video saying that is unaible to play file or that the file is corrupted but the windows runs the video normally (1080/120 or 60). Now i am having problems with the gopro studio too. And the videos 1080/240 doesnt reproduce, doesnt run

Re: GOPRO HERO 6 VIDEO RECORDING PROBLEMS

Hi, I have the same fps problem with a HERO6 Black. And did you notice that main screen colors are not real? I mean, it looks like yellowish, or in a warm tone. You can check it previewing the camera with your smartphone and you'll see the difference. Can you tell me if you have the same issue? Thank you

Re: GOPRO HERO 6 VIDEO RECORDING PROBLEMS

Try this Memory from Best Buy and also your Computer may not have enough resource to play back those VIDEO, I don't know what system you have but I use MAC Computer. Good Luck
