Over heating? Send it back for a replacement if it seems abnormal.

Re: Today i buy gopro 6 when cam turn on its heating continusly

using 4K video makes hte chip work out heat is the work out  so make sure you understand why the camera gets HOY

 

  • sd card
  • usb file transfer
  • battery charging
  • higher resolution recording
  • standby

to simply leave the camera on does it get burning  hot???

to simply record in different setttings how hot does it get

 

camera should be aout 1245 degrees. if not as high as 145 degrees/
