Previously we've done a few stress tests with a variety of action cameras, and put them under fire, ice, and water to see if they would still shoot and uh, vibrate. A YouTuber called Grant Thompson decided to one-up our experiment by putting a new GoPro Hero 5 Session and GoPro Hero 5 into a vat of liquid nitrogen.
He first started by dipping his older Session for five seconds, during which the camera was quickly covered with a layer of frost.
It was still good to go, so he submerged it for over 30 seconds. . . but the results weren't conclusive since he also forgot to charge the batteries. Nice.
Afterwards he was finally ready to use the Hero 5 Session, and it lasted around 60 seconds in the liquid nitrogen before shutting down. Bluetooth connectivity dropped a bit before then.
The rest of the video focused on the Hero 5, so you can check out the whole 12 minutes and see how it fared!. digitalrev.com
