Recommended Sd card for hero 7 black

What’s the recommended SD card for the go Pro hero 7 black? My GoPro runs entirely too hot even In a room temperature environment. I think the wrong ST card could be the reason

Re: Recommended Sd card for hero 7 black

Hi @epictree82272,

 

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.  We recommend only purchasing name brand SD cards through official resellers. Check this article to see our list of the most up-to-date GoPro recommended microSD cards.

 

In addition, when using 2.7K and higher resolutions, and/or frame rates above 60fps, it is normal for the camera to become warm and use more power when using these modes. Lack of airflow around the camera and using the camera with the GoPro App can also increase camera temperature and power consumption, and decreases camera recording time. 
 
You can check this article https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/hero7-battery-information for the full list of estimated continuous recording time of the HERO7 cameras. 

 

If your camera is getting a run time that is significantly shorter than the expected battery life, despite you using a recommended SD card and the camera being updated to the latest firmware version, you may perform a short record time test through the instructions here https://gopro.com/help/articles/solutions_troubleshooting/Short-Record-Times


Kind Regards,
Ann
