Hero 6 - Filming duration on Sandisk Extreme Pro 64gb

Hello all

 

Planning a trip to Paris, how many hours of filming (in 4k, maybe 2k..) fits on Sandisk Extreme Pro v30 64mb?

Gopro Hero 6.

 

Thanks all.

Hi @johnnys41423

 

Though we have not yet published an information specific to HERO6 Black, you may use this article as guide.

 

In addition to this, you also need to consider the camera's battery life. How Long Does the HERO6 Black Battery Last?

 

Enjoy your trip!

 

Best,

Ej

Re: Hero 6 - Filming duration on Sandisk Extreme Pro 64gb

He should turn on his camera and look if asked highest setting  w/o protune on I have 2 Hr 5 min. in 4k@60fps HEC. Unclear  if I am on 4K@30 with out HEC its 2 Hr 01 min

 

2K7@30fps 3 hr 51 min, 2 hr 2 min at 60g.

 

add protunes 

 

4K@60f 1 hr 37 min

 

 just thought I share what I see off A camera

Re: Hero 6 - Filming duration on Sandisk Extreme Pro 64gb

HEVC is a more efficient recording format so that's why you get a little more time recording with it. However, you do want to make sure you have editing capability to use this format or use handbrake to convert the footage.

@fishycomics is correct. If you turn the camera on it will show you the max recording time for your SD card.

H265 vs H264 prefrence.    restrictions using H265 HEC and  we need that released  we no longer--- Like said if you have to purchase a card make sure its the one you want  do not go cheap, a few 64gbs will be thesame as a 128gb but the thing is  if a 128 crashes you lose it all,  not  on the 64gbs.
