@billymontz

This is for Hero4 but hero5 is the same

Recording time will vary according to the resolution setting used and the card capacity. Here are the average recording storage times for HERO4 cameras with a 64GB SD card.

Note #1: If you are using a 32 GB SD card, these average record times would be half as large.

Note #2: These are not battery life estimates, it these are storage capacity estimates for the SD card.

It says over 8 and half hours on 128gb card at 1080p60 (weird it's the same at 30fps). And it's +/- accurate. Do the math ;-)

@wuadeq

 

Dont forget that about chaptering... the H5 will continuosly record until the power dies, placing each 4GB file as a chapter.  Then you combine them with editing sw like GoPro Studio!

Still can't get how GoPro achieved same bitrate at 60 and 30 fps. 60 has to be as twice as large, two times more frames, two times more pictures. Does it means 30 fps has better quality output? Or what's the magic?
