hero 7 crashing in time-lapse mode

Hero 7 black crashing in timelapse photo mode.


After changing ISO (1600 or 3200) and EV settings in timelapse , press record - it crashes after a few images. System Restarts and reverts to original settings. I havent tested the timelapse video or nightlapse photo to see if similar issue occurs.  I'm using a gopro preferred SD card.

 

Also noticed timelapse 2sec intervals also crashes. 5 second not a problem.

 

Anyone else having similar issues?

Hi @djcrashusa

 

What specific SD card are you using?

Let us know if the same thing happens for Timelapse video.

You can also test it with other modes.

 

 

Thanks!

Re: hero 7 crashing in time-lapse mode

I'm having very similar issues with my GoPro Hero 7 Black. Though in my case, the gopro will record in timelapse photo mode for a couple hours then crash. My goal is to have it record for 12hrs but it seems to only last about 3 hrs.

 

My setup is as follows:

- GoPro Hero7 Black (wi-fi turned off, preferences set to never turn off, timelapse photo set for 5 sec intervals with no RAW files, EV set to 0, max ISO set to 400, min ISO set to 100)

- Re-fuel extended battery, plugged in for "pass through" power which in theory should allow me to record for as long as there's space on the SD card (http://re-fuel.com/batteries-for-gopro/actionpack-extended-battery-for-gopro-hero6.html)

- SanDisk Extreme Plus 64GB (https://www.sandisk.com/home/memory-cards/microsd-cards/extremeplus-microsd-a2)

- Joby GorillaPod (https://joby.com/us-en/gorillapod-3k-jb01507-config/)

- All together the above is set up in my kitchen window looking out on the backyard, which has a hummingbird feeder centered in the shot

- for about half way through the shot the gopro probably gets a few hours worth of direct sunlight (I mention this because, well, could it be that the GoPro is overheating???)

 

I set it up in the morning before work, and it starts to record. Usually before I leave it's recorded up to 40+ images. I get home in the evenings, and the GoPro is off. When I run the resulting timelapse (the GoPro indicates a little over 1800 pics were taken), I see that it worked for a few hours then crashed (the very last image looks like what a corrupt jpg might look like if you open it in photoshop). And the GoPro still has about 40% charge (which is disappointing as it shoud be 100% since it's getting passthrough power from the Re-fuel).

 

So is my GoPro Hero7 Black defective or is my setup problematic???

Re: hero 7 crashing in time-lapse mode

 

Hi @ronanm386

 

It's possible that the camera did overheat.

If the camera gets too hot, a message appears on the screen indicating that the camera is shutting down.

 

Try to take the battery out and run the camera off of the external charger.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!
