SD card max write speed for Hero 4/3+

Hello,

 

What is the maximum write speed for still images for the Hero 4 and Hero 3+? I am taking still images in rapid sequence, and am curious of the maximum write speed allowed by these two cameras for still images. If I have a V90 SDHC card (>90 MB/s write speed), will images be written at those speeds, or is that just for video?

 

Thank you!

GoPro doesn't provide that information (this is a member to member support community), however, I really doubt you'll see any noticable difference with a v90 card. It's best to stick with the recommended SD cards. https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/microSD-Card-Considerations#list2

They  more or less  go into the Internal memory first,
