Hero 7 Black, Playback time 64gig SD @ 4K60fps

How much playback time does the Hero 7 black have on 4K60 with an 64gig sd?

 

Im asking because when i change the setting to different resolutions (60 of 30pfs etc.) it says 2.05 hour for 60fps and 2.00 hour for 30fps

 

Seems to me that when i lower the fps by half it needs to double the record time instead of lowering it.

 

Even when i set it to 1080 fps 24fps it says 2 hour of playback. 

 

Already running on version 1.70 and did an factory reset. 

 

Tried a different SD card also with same result...sd card is used in my hero 5 (4k 30fps) with no issues.

 

Gopro 7 is brand new out of the box.

Hello @marcels5880. We do not have official numbers for the recording capacity for the HERO7 Black but values here https://gopro.com/help/articles/Question_Answer/HERO4-Black-Recording-Time-in-Each-Video-Setting are comparable. As observed, considering the same resolution setting, a lower frame rate allows for more recorded content on the same SD card. Fell free to post back for any other questions or concerns.
