Re: Hero 5 black freezing on quickcapture

Don't buy the 6 if you think that is going to fix it!  I have returned a 5 and two of the six, mine were junk.  My God, for the price of these things you'd think they could build them better.  I have had at least 50 cameras in my life and gopro has been nothing but trouble.  Cannot depend on them.

Dejank14712 is spot on. I replaced camera and it is still faulting. How long does gopro normally take to reply to these threads? im new on here.

Re: Hero 5 black freezing on quickcapture

Can you reproduce this problem with the latest firmware?

I have replaced my Hero 5 with Hero 6 so I cannot test if this problem is fixed with latest firmware. 

Btw, Hero 6 works OK - I cannot reproduce this problem on it.

Re: Hero 5 black freezing on quickcapture

This morning I decided to test the new firmware. I hit the record button and the camera froze. I do not have a comment. Gopro totally disappointed me ....

Maybe gopro should start making freezers instead.
