Hi I bought a GoPro 7 two days ago. A few questions?
 
Hi, I bought it to replace my old fuji waterproof camera, as I wanted the steady shots, and the 4k @ 60fps was too good.

Now this is my first go pro. Can I get screen and lens protectors for it? And will older models suck as the 5 fit? They look like the same design specs. Also has anyone any idea how long a battery lasts recording at 4k 60fps? And how much recording time I'd get running at that with a 128gb memory card.

Big thanks to anyone who can help school a GoPro newb.

No, I already have the camera! Lol. It was thr other questions I wanted answering. Thanks.

With battery at 100% and camera ready....aim it at a clock and hit go.

Report back the elapsed time here.

Thanks.

Wow can't believe no one on here has any experience with go pros. Lol. Either that or people would rather be awkward then helpful.

You said you bought a GoPro 2 days ago.

It's unclear, but are you saying you have it now...if so then do as suggested.

It should be a bit worse than the Hero 6 since overclocked same processor and 1 gb additional ram.

Thanks. I'll Google the run times and mem usage for the 6 then.

@Furyan

Did the camera come with a Manual https://gopro.com/help/productmanuals

if not here it is. On or about pg 88 offers video info not what you're asking:

HERO6 Black Camera Battery-life
Video Mode Time (Minutes)
4K 60 70m
4K 30 95m
2.7K 120 60m
1440p60 75m
1080p240 60m
1080p120 65m
1080p60 100m
720p60 110m

but this is what you wanted correct?

Do you have your Hero 7 now, it's not clear from your posts.

Or is it just on order and you are waiting like many others?

The 7 has the same imaging chip as the 6. Same battery as the 6. Same ~case as the 6. Same GP1 processor, but running at a faster clock speed than the 6. An additional 1 gb of memory over the 6. More processing going on than the 6.

So...if you physically have one, you can try the simple clock test.

For now the best estimate may be a bit less than the 6.

But other things like shooting outdoors in the sun in a hot region at noon hence overheating shutdown if you run it continuously.

What kind of shooting do you do?

How many clips per shoot?

What modes for these clips?

How much playback and mode changing?

Good Luck to you and bye.
