512Gb MicroSD card with Hero6 Black?

I know similar questions have been asked before, but this one is more specific: 

 

Has anyone used 512 Gb cards with the Hero6 Black? Successfully? 

 

512 Gb cards have become available recently. I'm looking at the Samsung EVO Plus 512 Gb. The 256 Gb version is listed by GoPro as compatible with the Hero7, so I guess part of the question is if the Hero6 will work with 512 Gb cards in the first place (provided they are fast enough, of course)?

Re: 512Gb MicroSD card with Hero6 Black?

I have now used a Samsung EVO Plus 512 Gb card and a Samsung EVO Select 512 Gb card with a Hero6 black recording in 2.7k 50 fps with pt, twice filling up both cards almost completely, with no issues.

I have four 128 Gb cards. 

 

That's not what I asked though.

Re: 512Gb MicroSD card with Hero6 Black?

Hi @bluejump5503,

 

Thanks for reaching out. The SD cards in this list are the ones we've tested and known to work well with GoPro cameras. As of right now, we're unable to attest if the 512GB SD cards will work with the cameras. Anyhow, the article list will be updated once further information is available.


Kind Regards,
Ann

Re: 512Gb MicroSD card with Hero6 Black?

 No hard feeling we ask  because we do not see it noted. right.

 

https://gopro.com/content/dam/help/hero6-black/manuals/HERO6Black_UM_ENG_REVB.pdf

 

pg 8 on about each manual you look at of a gopro.. your option to go bigger .. 

 

Welcome to your new HERO6 Black! Let’s get started.
MICROSD CARDS
To capture video and photos, you need a microSD card (sold separately).
Use brand name memory cards that meet these requirements:
• microSD, microSDHC, or microSDXC
• Class 10 or UHS-I rating
• Capacity up to 256GB
For a list of the recommended microSD cards, visit
gopro.com/workswithgopro.
If the memory card becomes full during recording, your camera stops
recording and displays FULL on the touch display.
NOTICE: Use care when handling memory cards. Avoid liquids, dust
and debris. As a precaution, power off the camera before inserting or
removing the card. Check the memory card manufacturer’s guidelines
for information about use in acceptable temperature ranges.
Inserting the microSD Card
1. Hold down the Latch Release button on the battery door, then slide

Re: 512Gb MicroSD card with Hero6 Black?

When I go on motorcycle trips, each 128 Gb card only lasts for 1/3 of a day. I need to keep very close attention during the day in order to fill each card, yet not miss footage. This is a nuisance. I should keep my attention on the road and the views along the road instead.

 

And it's very fiddly to handle the small cards while at gas stations etc, not to mention on dirt roads. I run a high risk of losing a card to the terrain (the risk of a faulty card is definitely neglible by comparison). I also run two cameras = twice the fiddling.  

 

Thus, 512 Gb card compatibility is a big deal

 

Thanks for the note on 256 Gb cards. I suppose the manual was updated.

 

I did order one 512 Gb card, figuring the advantages would be worth the risk of it not being compatible. Unfortunately it never turned up and I got a refund. Now I'm debating trying it again.
