The longest recording

[ New ]

My hero 8 will only record for a maximum of 11 min and 25 seconds before starting a new recording. Is it supposed to do this?

I recorded a trip on my motorcycle and when I downloaded it it was in 6 segments ranging from 2min 50 sec to 11 min 25 sec.

@peppyhero325  called chaptering, you are on a lower resolution and  every 4gb it will creat a continous file,  Now the question is what if gopro  makes it stop when each chapter fills, or what if they simply do away with chaptering?

 

 

1 you be upset have to hit record and watch the camera each time.

 

2 and the camera just slipped off  the bike or hand, and the file  got currupted and it did not repair, you lost all the footage of one recording.

 

Its a way to protect us when doing longer durations. if 5 chapters are made and the camera crashed, file did not get fixed you lost one part, not all parts. 

 

and that is how gopro works. other companies do longer or shorter chapters and also in a correct filesystem as well, not gopro.
