Re: Hero7 Black Freezes, video file shows frozen image but audio continues recording

Ok. So we know now that these issues have not been fixed with new update.
In my case, I can not reproduce freezing with audio when I use new genuine Gopro batteries or when I am on Karma Grip. If you are on generic no Gopro batteries or your batteries are old, try new genuine Gopro batteries and see if this helps.

Re: Hero7 Black Freezes, video file shows frozen image but audio continues recording

so Im testing my sd card (samsung evo select) now and it shows reading speed of 17.8 writing speed 9.9 so maybe i do have a crappy/fake sd card. ill keep testing.

Yes - these speeds are definitely too low for 4k recording and could cause camera freeze.

So back to square one. No reliable reports yet that freeze issues still exist with new firmware (assuming good card and good battery).

Re: Hero7 Black Freezes, video file shows frozen image but audio continues recording

Im not sure if my low speeds were not caused by old sd card adapter, i was getting different speeds using different machines.   but you brought up an interesting point about the battery, I did have a cheap, not original battery in this time.  so thats also a possibility.  I just ordered a new sd card sandisk extreme u3   a2 v30.  if that doesnt help than i gotto test batteries...  **bleep** this is a project. cheers

On pages 41 and 42 of this thread I did 3 posts describing my battery tests plus other power supply sources tests. Check it out. It may help.
Gopro 7 firmware does not seem to tolerate less stable power supply.

I can confirm that the freezing issue still occurs aftrer the lates update.

I have tried 2 different SD cards (both recommended by GoPro) and the issues are identicle.
