Max GB Size Micro SD - GoPro Hero 9

[ New ]

Dear GoPro, and GoPro users,

I am looking for a new Micro SD card for my GoPro Hero 9.
But I don't know what the maximum GB size is accepted by the new GoPro.
I want to go as big as possible, 1TB, 512GB, or 256GB.
Which size is the biggest one that the GoPro Hero 9 accepts,

or is that also depending on the kind of micro SD card?

Looking forward hearing from you guys, so I can make the purchase!

Hello @megarange8164. To consistently achieve the best results with your GoPro camera, it is important to select microSD cards that are known to work well with the model you have. Check this article to see our list of the most up-to-date GoPro recommended microSD cards. We recommend only purchasing name brand SD cards through official resellers.

I checked the HERO9 Black user manual (page 8) and found that it supports up to 256GB microSD cards.


However, the URL below states that a microSD card of 256GB or more is also recommended.

SanDisk Extreme PRO (UHS-1 U3 / V30) A2 400GB
Lexar 663x UHS-1 High-Performance 512GB

 

Which is the correct information?
