I don't see how it will help except make the GoPro hotter IMHO.

None of the tests I saw were outdoors, everyone was indoors in a cool room, stationary.

Even DC Rainmaker's overheating tests of full of hot YouTube air because he was not engaging hypersmooth - being stationary. Simulating air flow with a fan is nice, but not moving the camera is pointless.

DC Rainmaker's tests were valid. Hypersmooth consumes full power even when the camera is not moving.

I have not tried a metal cage myself, but it is very reasonable to think it help. First it increases the cameras thermal mass. Secondly, it increases the surface area for convective cooling.

Full disclosure: I work for GoPro

Well, there we have it right from GoPro. Tell me Jon, will the upcoming 11 rectify the heat issue? I'll put aside some $$ for it if it does.


I'm not at liberty to discuss future products.

I understand. Just had to try 🙂.
