Hero 7 wont record for long periods of time

I am a basketball coach and I am trying to record my practices on my Hero 7. My practices last 2 hours, I am not recording a whole 2 hours but my camera wont record more than 10 minutes. I use the app to record, but when i check the recording has stopped. Can someone explain why it will not continue to recorde for more than 10 minutes?

Hi @blackd4584

 

1440p resolution is available when the aspect ratio is set to 4:3.

Kindly check the Resolution settings on your camera.

 

Thanks!

Memory card (brand / model / size)?

 

Settings / recording mode?

 

Have you trieds as a test not using the app and does the same still occur?

 

Some more info might help get to the bottom of it.

Hi @braveriver80210

 

Here is a list of estimated recording times: HERO7 Battery Information

 

Were you able to update the camera's firmware?

Do you start with a fully charged battery?

 

Thanks!

Re: Hero 7 wont record for long periods of time

Am I missing something, I do not see 1440p choices on my Hero 7 Black, I only see 4k, 2.7k, 1080, & 720p...…???? Yes, I have updated with the latest Firmware and using SD card that came with the camera.
