Re: Hero 7 Black Battery Issues

wow only managed to get 80mins out of mine with fully charged battery 1080/25 pal with gps, voice, wireless, IS all turned off. For a camera that costs over half a ground AUD that is pretty bad. sandisk extreme 64gb micro sdxcV30 3U A2 formatted before going out.

Re: Hero 7 Black Battery Issues

Hello Travism....

Are you recording video?

I am not doing anything. Camera is off. I am only looking at battery drain when switched of. Are you telling me, the battery is exhausted in 80 Min. with everything turned off?

Can't wait to switch on the 15th if it has hypersmooth like stabilization. I will drop GoPro as fast as they dropped us with the firmware updates on the HB7.

DJI launches the Osmo Action, their first action camera. Pictures of it already leaked and it looks promising.

Re: Hero 7 Black Battery Issues

Given DJI's relatively good track record on drone cameras, I suspect it'll be a close competitor to the Hero 7 Black. It looks like the Osmo Action is going to retail at about the same price (rumored $399).

I hope that motivates GoPro to fix the firmware bugs in the HB7 quickly or I'm done with GoPro. I have several DJI drones and they haven't disappointed. OTOH, remember GoPro's ill-fated Karma drone...whose batteries literally fell out mid flight thus obliterating one's expensive drone and endangering anything below.

 

GoPro, however, seems uninterested in fixing the firmware and battery bugs or the GPS issues with their desktop software. Shame.
