Operating temperature

Hi, I am interested in the Hero5.

I would like to know what is the operating temperature range for the Hero5.

I am going to Finland in December and would like to use it to capture the Aurora Borealis, but is worried that the Hero5 cannot operate in the extreme temperature.

Thank you.

Re: Operating temperature

@noblegorge1544 - I'll keep an eye out to see if the information is different for the HERO5's, but I'm pretty sure they follow the temperature specs as our other cameras. Generally though, the cameras operate fine in the cold. The main issue in cold temperatures is reduced battery life.

 

On the other end, the cameras will shut off if operational temperatures get above 125 F.

 

Thanks,

Jeff

Re: Operating temperature

I have the Hero5 and I have been using it filming at 2.7k/30fps and 1080p/30fps with photos every 10 seconds in cold temperatures between 10-35 degrees farenheit. My battery life is between 1 hour and 45 minutes to 2 hours with those settings. 

 

This far surpasses my Hero4's battery life which I have a battery back pack for. Using similar settings in cold temperatures on my Hero4 I'm lucky if I get about 45 minutes to an hour and 15 minutes. Hope this helps!

 

Cheers,

Mike

Re: Operating temperature

Forgot to mention I'm using the Sandisk Extreme Plus UHS 64GB card not sure if that makes too much of a difference or not.
