Hi @quickpike34448

 

Yes :) 

You can use your old batteries for HERO7 Black.

Re: Gopro 5 and gopro 7 black

What about batteries from Hero 4 Black, will they work with Hero 7 Black?

Hi @jrychter

 

HERO4 Black's battery is different and will not work with the HERO7 Black.

Re: Gopro 5 and gopro 7 black

Thank you!

 

I just ordered double battery charger with extra battery for my new Hero 7. Quite few reviews I read mentioned Hero 7 heating when recording in 4K. Is this related to FPS setting and problem is not so noticable when recording in 4K 24fps vs 4k 60fps?

Yes, it does. Thank you!

I don't plan to use app and already using remote with my Hero 4, hope the remote will work fine with new Hero 7. Thanks again.
