Memory card size

After consideration I've decided to go with 64 GB memory cards.  What have other people done & what did you experience?

Hi @fireypike04471,

 

Me too. I personally prefer using that rather than 128 or 256. 

 

32GB you can consider it too.

Re: Memory card size

I'm curious about your reasoning.  Mine is partially cost and partially expectations.  I don't expect to be a regular GoPro user.  In fact, I've had the camera for over a month & I just got around to buying a small tripod.

Oh, and I haven't shot anything except for short clips, experiementing with various settings.

Hi @fireypike04471,

 

For me I'm always having problem with 128GB.

Freezes, hanging up and other glitches but not when using 32 ot 64.

Re: Memory card size

I've read numerous comments about issues with 128 GB cards.  Enough to scare me off.  Of course, then there's the cost.

Yup @fireypike04471,

 

Let's wait for other user. Some prefer 128 or 256GBs since they want to record a full length coverage of their trip or they want to document everything.
