GO PRO HERO 6 EXTERNAL POWER SOURCE

With my new Go Pro 6 i'm limited to a 3 hour time lapse as you can only use the internal battery. If you add an external battery or power source the camera will charge the internal battery but will not allow you to record footage at the same time. Can anyone help me resolve this limitation on time lapse shooting? Many thanks!

Hey @simonwebbphoto,

 

You can actually take the battery out of the camera and just run the camera from an external power source. This should allow you to recored for as long as you have available memory.

 

Cheers,
