Re: Overheating GoPro 7

[ New ]

So, in frustration, I've purchased an osmo action.  Took it out today, connected an external battery, mounted it in the sun, started recording at 4k/60fps, and it worked like a champ for nearly 2 hours of footage.

 

No overheating.

No problem connecting to an external battery.

No lost footage.

 

I know it doesn't have all the bells and whistles that the gopro line has (GPS, etc), but as a working camera, that is reliable, and can perform at its peak resolution and frame rate without silently dying halfway through an important shoot...well, I'm sorry, but I'd rather have a lower feature camera, that is 100% reliable, than something that works brilliantly for random 15 minute increments.
