Its possible it will overheat as it cant write the data because its trying to process it while taking another shot and CPU running at max.
Also make sure you bought from Amazon and not a seller selling on Amazon, they are famous for selling fakes through Amazon.

in fact it becomes quite hot even when I am taking normal photos or making a video.
By the way I'm trying to understand how much time the GoPro needs to process the photo during a night lapse.
I mean, if I shoot with a 15 sec shutter and 20 seconds interval, the GoPro has 5 seconds to process the file before starting to shoot the next photo.
Am I right? Isn't 5 seconds enough to process the file before shooting the next photo?

No one here knows htat write time of the camera or its buffer time, maybe you will need to get to gopro engineers what the Internal memory isstoring and transferring back to the card. g ood luck

In long shutter mode on almost any camera the image takes the same time to process as the shutter exposure time, so I know the write time. Hence it's double. We don't need nick to get of his yacht to tell us this.

Hi guys, at the end I found out that the problem was due to the camera.
I called the GoPro italian support and they confirmed it.
I tried with 4 different SD cards including, SanDisk Extreme Pro and SanDisk Extreme, getting the same problem.
I changed the camera directly with a new one because I was in the 7 days of warranty, avoiding to send the camera to GoPro.
Now the new one seems to work properly.
I hope this could help, thank you
