Question regarding recording capability on a 256 gig card for Go Pro Hero 6.........

How many minutes of video can I expect to get if I have a 256 Gigabyte SDCard if my GoPro Hero 6 is set at 1080 Quality?

Re: Question regarding recording capability on a 256 gig card for Go Pro Hero 6.........

Protunes turned on will record at a better quality at the expence of larger files.  I'll assume it's on.

 

In NTCS areas (e.g. USA) the base frame rate is 30 frames per second and in PAL/SECAM areas its 25fps with multiples of that number giving crisper images or slow motion

 

25 / 30fps  - about 9.5 hours

50 / 60fps - about 9.5 hours

100 / 120fps - about 7.5 hours

200 / 240fps - about 6 hours

Thanks for your reply...I haven’t gotten a chance to open and play with my Go Pro Hero 6 Camera therefore I am unaware what Protune is......
i do suppose I will be recording at 1080 P frame rate within a 256 Gig SDHD Card inorder to get as many performances as possible in Camera video during those 2 days of music Festival....... I have yet to learn y’alls terminilogy....... lol
