Re: My new Hero 6 giving me nothing but grief

Looks like you have found the upper temp range. 

Even with a breeze, there is obviously not enough surface area to dissipate the heat in this mode for a long time. 

Gopro does state then the camera can overheat in certain modes. (My DSLR can only record for about 15 mins) 

I would look into making some sort of cool box and fan set up, but no guarantee that it will work if one can't dissipate the heat form inside the Gopro. Worth a try though.

Re: My new Hero 6 giving me nothing but grief

I'm in Yangon, Myanmar and my GoPro doesn't work outside because of the heat. It is the most horrible thing ever! Whenever I go inside where there's air conditioning it works again. This is just the worst for an ''action camera''. Complete waste of money!!

How hot is it where you are? 

Just to be sure, you have the latest firmware and a good sd card? 

What mode are you running? Remember high fps, 4k, protune etc do make more heat. This is not just a gopro problem if one reads other forums, (garmin) but 99% of the time its a bad sd card. 

I ran my Hero 5 this summer in Portugal,37 degrees C. Got a lock up once running 2.7k 60fps protune, gps, and wifi.
