hero5 black timelapse recording stops

Hi everybody,

 

I'm trying to make fairly long (approx 24hrs) timelapse recordings with a hero5 black, one image every 0.5s, 1080 resolution.

After a few hours (1 to 10, number of hours varies), the cameras makes three beeps and stops recording, defeating the whole purpose of what I was trying to accomplish.

 

 

- I don't get any firmware update messages when plugged into the computer, I am on 2.60 which I believe is the current firmware

- the gopro is staying plugged in to the supercharger the whole time

 

The only things I've found on the internet about this are the card:

- here is the card I'm using : https://www.amazon.fr/gp/product/B01DYN4USM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

it was formatted before recording. It seems to me it's on the supported list. I need a fair amount of capacity because I'm making pretty long recordings without being able to offload. Is there a better, 100% sure card ?

- overheating ? how do I discreetly cool down the gopro ?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

 

Thanks

 

Sam

Re: hero5 black timelapse recording stops

Hi @greensurf33155

 

The latest firmware for HERO5 Black is v02.60.

 

If you are using the card listed on the link you have sent, I am afraid it is not part of the list of SD Cards that Work with GoPro Cameras.

The SD card may work but it has not been officially tested with the GoPro camera's yet.

 

Using high-performance modes in higher temperatures decreases camera recording time. In addition, lack of airflow around the camera, using the camera with the GoPro App, or in combination with BacPac accessories (HERO4 Black only) further increases camera temperature and power consumption, and decreases camera recording time. 

For additional information please see: Camera Temperature and Performance in High-Performance Modes

 

 

Thanks!

EJ
