Is there an off-the-self way to record video to an external hard drive vs mini SD card using a GoPro Hero 5?
Why? I would like to record more than 256GB of data without changing cards.why would you WANT to do that?
a traditional hard drive....probably would fail in an off road environment. a solid state drive would be my only consideration. but considering micro SD cards (today) can hold 256GB how much memory do you really need?
Thanks for the response. What about HDMI output recording? Does anyone have experience with this?Unfortunately since Go Pro uses a Micro SD Card you can only have 256GB max memory as of now. Keep in mind you can record 12 hours straight of 4k footage on a 256GB Micro SD. If you need more than that you are going to have to look into a professional camera solution other than a GoPro, as it sounds essential for your particular application.
Thanks for the reply. I should have expanded on my original response and question. The GoPro is in an area where access is difficult, meaning switching cards or pressing buttons isn't going to happen. It is also unlikely someone will use the app to trigger the loop mode (if this is even possible).Rather than record hour after hour after hour of footage, do a search for how to use looping mode.
