This is the second time this has happened to us (can't find my earlier post, or I'd have continued it there).
We bought a GoPro Hero6 Black about a week before the Hero7 came out. (Nasty surprise!)
Last night we were recording an 80-minute ballet, and had the GoPro Hero6 Black near the stage, attached to an external battery. Did not have its internal battery in it, because we'd been advised before that to use the external battery, the internal battery should be removed. The card in the camera was a 128Gig SanDisk Extreme.
When the show was over, I noticed that the GoPro screen had a "low battery" message. In fact, the battery was not low at all - it was (is) still about 85% charged.
The worst news was that when I uploaded the footage to my computer, I discovered that the camera had worked fine for about 40 minutes, and then the picture went black, even though the sound kept recording. The image is nothing but all black, occasionally pulsing to a dark gray. The audio is fine, but the affected footage overall is useless.
The same thing happened to us a few weeks ago, in a shorter show - the camera went black after about 20 minutes, while continuing to record sound.
My conclusion is that the GoPro Hero6 Black is intended only for recording relatively short "action clips", and that it cannot be depended on, for shooting longer material. I think the documentation and advertising should mention this.

I fully format the card and put on theside recording something.
I then try another sdxc card not that high a capacity
then to simply go out to find issues. Yeah weshould not test things when they are to work but that is how we do it wit ha camera see how far we can push it and go from there
I want the perfect shot so itry my bestto learn th esituation like last night I know I was going to be in a dark place I set the camera up perfectly done and well uh you knowwhat happened blurred shots my fault gopro failed yep my fault. its a camera and things happen is all I am saying s oit can be the card.

I Found my earlier post, and added this information to it, since it's the same problem that happened before.
