Gopro 7 Black with 3.5mm mic adapter - switching off

[ New ]

Hi folks!

 

I'm using Hero 7 Black in my race car mounted internally to the rollcage.Purchased a mic adapter and installed 2 microfones inside of the car to boost up engine noise and 1-way communication with my box team. However even when I am taking out the battery from the Gopro 7B and connecting only to the powerbank, which has a charging capability of 5V-2,7A it, the camera itself got overheated after 14-17 minutes and its switching off. Even I have tried with another powerbank the problem remains. How could I have footeage of 4 hours without having such issue?

I'm using only OE Gopro equipment with Samsung 256 EVO Plus SD card and recording in 2.7k 60fps

Thanks for the support.

Hello, @szakcsa. This may have to do with the resolution settings used for the recording. For cameras that feature unique high-performance video modes: 2.7K and higher resolutions, and/or frame rates above 60fps, it is normal for the camera to become warm and use more power when using these modes. These tips will help.
