Settings: I want to capture an entire 1.5 hr softball game, what is the best settings to allow this?

I want to be able to capture a 1.5 hour game on one battery for the Hero 8 - any recommendations on what settings to use to make this happen? It does not need to be best quality, just good enough quality. thanks in advance!

Hi @matobesman

 

Check out https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/HERO8-Black-Recording-Time-in-Each-Video-Setting/ta-p/438095 for information.

Other users suggest taking the battery out and letting the camera run off an external power source.

If working with this setup, please note that removing the side door on the camera will leave the USB ports exposed which compromises the camera's waterproof ability. 

 

 

Thanks!
