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......
