Hero 7 Black stops night-lapse at 420 photos

Everytime I go to take a nightlapse with my hero 7 Black, it freezes at 420 pictures EVERYTIME! I have a fully charged battery, latest firmware and a gopro reccomended SD card. Any ideas on what to do? The camera is also less than a week old. I bought it new. Besides the timelapse issue, it works perfectly.

Hi @quickdusk76377

 

I did a test with a HERO7 Black and was not able to replicate the issue.

What SD card are you using?

Please see if resetting the camera will make a difference.  Reset Camera Settings
If it's still the same, proceed with a manual software update. https://gopro.com/update/
Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!

Re: Hero 7 Black stops night-lapse at 420 photos

I use this micro sd card. It’s bizzare because it works perfectly fine in timelapse video and every other mode. It only seems to freeze in nightlapse mode.

Re: Hero 7 Black stops night-lapse at 420 photos

Hello @troym21

 

Were you able to try the steps suggested?

 

Lexar 667x VIDEO (UHS 3 / V30) 64GB is recommended for the HERO7 cameras.

See https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/microSD-Card-Considerations for reference.

 

Thanks!

Re: Hero 7 Black stops night-lapse at 420 photos

I’ve reset the camera manually several times to try and correct the issue. I also have the latest firmware V1.80. Everything is up to date. What is the best Micro SD card you would recommend for Hero 7 Black?
