microSD Hero6 recommendation

Hi everyone!

I am looking to buy my first GoPro and I am shocked to see how many issues with a brand new camera. I am also surprised to see that GoPro recommends only one microSD card according to their table.

 

So which microSD card should I buy if I decide to get the Hero6? I may need to sacrifice the 4K 60fps and get the Hero5. For the IS I just got a Freevision VILTA gimbal. Once you film with a gimbal you don't want to do it without one.

Thanks a lot!

Re: microSD Hero6 recommendation

4K 60FPS hasn't worked for me on the recommended card anyway when mountainbiking with my two piece of **bleep** Hero 6 cameras. From what I gathered on here, there's some attachment between the board of directors on GoPro and SanDisk, which is probably the reason for the recommendation being limited to SanDisk. That recommendation, however, sucks, because something isn't working right.

Re: microSD Hero6 recommendation

There are some "issues" and should be fixed soon, but I have both and the Hero 6 has a lot more dynamic range and if

you get it set right in post, it blows away the Hero 5. The only issue I have is low light blue grain, but that is easliy fixed

using protune settings and lowering the ISO and manually setting the white balance. I'm also using a Samsung EVO Plus (2017)

microSD card (which isn't on their recommened list), and haven't had any issues with it. I don't like Sandisk, but maybe that

will change since Western Digital finished their buyout last year.

 

Here is a dry run of something i will be doing again early summer next year. It was shot about an hour before sunset.

Re: microSD Hero6 recommendation

hi @callatis8128,

 

at the beginning, I used one similar to the Hero5, a Samsung PRO+

was ok.

hardly ever I experienced some strange like no audio.

and decided to switch to that SandDisk V30 recommend microSD.

since no such issue as frame lost or missing audio.

is there something with these incompatibilities....

 

some reported issue have workarounds, some not, we all are waiting for the upgrade....  Smiley Tongue

 

gimbal rocks, I use karma grip and footages are awesome, I'm with you....Smiley Wink

think at EIS when rains

 

I own both Hero5 and Hero6...6 is more powerful, somehow uncontrolled yet with the actual firmware release.

 

have a good one!

Re: microSD Hero6 recommendation

one more thing!!!!!!...just to have all the data...

 

if you plan using gimbal, please search for the "wonky" in this forum

...seems that hero6 horizontal level is 1degree off...if this bothers you (I don't, as I film mostly on my push MTB bike), till a solution will be available, hold your decision....

Only thing I would add to that is that, EVO+, and EVO Plus are two different cards, the + is about a year older than

the Plus. Samsung has a weird sense of humor and naming the products + and Plus.
