Re: Go pro hero 5 session

 

Hi @bravewave34225

 

May I know the specific activity you're doing? 

Also the SD card brand and model you're using.

 

Overheating normally happen if you're using a not recommended SD card. 

Also if you're using the camera on extreme weather condition or prolonged use on  direct sunlight. 

 

 

Regards,

-Jay

Re: Go pro hero 5 session

HI @graytree76514,
I have Sandisk Extreme microSDXC 64GB U3 V30 A1. The camera was put in the top office in my room to see how long its battery lasts, but in 15 to 20 minutes it got a message of overheating and died out. I also have it less than a week.
