Re: hero 6 shuts down while recording

@ jussiv680
Only thing I can tell you buddy is to try the latest firmware. It most likely will fix your issue since you are not running a card or battery. If the issue still exists, then there is nothing you can do till gopro fixes the faulty issues, in which I think the issues will be fixed with the hero 7 release. I have a gut feeling the hero 6 is dead in the water, as the problems would have been addressed already.

Re: hero 6 shuts down while recording

Good news! Last night i updated the newest firmware 2.01. Today the camera has stayed on for 8 hours and still going. So i think the problem has been solved for my use at least.
