Recording Length

Hi All,

 

First time out testing new Hero 7, camera mounted on bike.  I started recording and just let it run for awhile.  All my videos are exactly 8:51 in length and then it starts a new recording.  Is this normal behavior for the GoPro?

 

Thanks,

John

Re: Recording Length

Called chaptering. changing resolution may increase the chapter time.  Older gopro's they were 12 min-30 min chapters,  Also the filse sizes are 4gb as well. so a lothas to play with why it is that way.  Imagine a file is currupted, would you want the whole 1 hour bike ride  file or chapters and a crash  occured,  you at least lose a chapter not the whole.

 

 hope that  helped out.

Re: Recording Length

GoPro has been that way  the larger the bitrate goes the less record time for chaptering.
