Hero 7 battery limited features?

[ New ]

Hello

 

Just got a Hero 8 for Christmas and I have been using my old Hero 7 batteries. I get a message on the camera saying some features will be disabled with the old batteries. What features will not work? So far I havent noticed any missing features and everything works fine.

Re: Hero 7 battery loss of features?

Hello @bansheerider1. The HERO8 Black comes with an updated battery that supports the increased performance modes of 1080/240 and 2.7/120 with HyperSmooth on. You may see performance issues when shooting in high-performance modes. For this reason, we suggest only using the HERO8 Battery in the HERO8 Black camera.
