HERO6 Black Splittscreen

Hey guys,

i bought a gopro 6 black and realize that after some time of filming my Camera splits the video in half with one side filming and the other not. in the end of this video both sides were dead but my audo line is still on. its not every time that happens but at least it happens two time while i was filming a trick with an skill toy ( its hard when your lace youre trick after playing a long time and see it al was waste of time and energy). 

i normally dont film longer than 15 min so i cut and start new video.

after this bug happens and i stop filming the go pro just beep once and than turn of. 

i have to pull out the battery and put it in again to be able to start the gopro

stats about my gopro:

Using firmware 02.01

using Samsung 128 GB EVO Plus 

Filming on 1080P 120 FPS

Using superview 


i hop some one can help me 

Greeting Marln

While that card should work fine, I'd test with another (preferably 64GB) if possible. Also, factory resetting the camera and performing a manual update might correct the issue. What you are describing was an early issue with some SD cards when the camera was released, but it was fixed with the updates. I haven't seen or heard about this for a long time.
