Beat me by 9 seconds, LOL.

 

@colst03

Although the list does have the Samsung EVO Plus 256GB, the user manual specifies that the camera is rated for up to 128GB.

Plenty of people successfully use 256GB cards, so they should work.  However, there is a higher risk of failure.

My advice:

 

Do not use one 256 card. Better way is to have 2 x 128 or less. If somehow your one 256 will broke.....you lose all your videos. If you will have 2, one broken.....,second will have some videos.

Thanks for all your great and useful answers. I will go for 256g samsung evo plus because it os tje chapeasr in Europe (70 euros) and I will use my go pro mainly for water sport like skiing bowee and scubadiving so i prefer avoid to manipulate it. I will habe already the luggage of batteries to deal with :-)

Caution... have had intermittent problems with the Samsung EVO plus 256GB. My use case involves taking very long videos, I had a camera crash about once every 20-30h of recording.

 

Am now using SanDisk Extreme Pro 128GB which should give you >4H of continuous recording, much longer than your battery life.

If my recording times supported it, I'd go down to 64GB.
