GoPro Hero5 Black accept 200GB microSD memory cards?

Does GoPro Hero5 Black accept 200GB, 256GB, 400GB, or larger than 128GB microSD memory cards? Does the camera accept the cards but not officially supported? Will there be a firmware release in future that will allow larger memory cards? What are the company plans to support larger memory cards? 200GB microSD memory cards are very affordable when on sale. I only found documentation regarding 128GB microSD memory cards. Using larger memory cards would be convenient when winter hiking mountains in severe temperature and inclement conditions. Would also be convenient when scuba diving or snorkeling in tropical climates. Not easy to swap memory cards when wearing snow gloves or scuba gloves. Granted the battery runs out way before the memory is consumed taking long videos.

Re: GoPro Hero5 Black accept 200GB microSD memory cards?

i used to use a Lexar 633x 200gb, & in the end was more hassle than it was worth. every 2-3months the card would become write protected & couldn't get it to unlock. It did this on 3 replacements before I finally gave up & got a refund. Don't know if it was the cards, or something the GoPro was doing to them but I won't bother again.
