CAPTURE RESOLUTION, FPS, AND FOV
With Omni, each HERO4 Black camera captures video at the following resolutions:
FPS (NTSC/ PAL)
High-Performance Video Modes, Camera Temperatures, and Battery Performance
When capturing video at 2.7K 4:3, it is normal for the cameras to become warm and use more power.
If a camera gets too hot, a message appears on the screen indicating that the cameras is shutting down. The camera stops recording, saves your video, and powers off. If this happens with a camera in Omni, let your camera sit and cool for 20 minutes before attempting to use it again.
For extended recording time, capture shorter video clips or remove the batteries from all cameras and use an external power source with the power connector on the rig.
