what is best micro card to use for Gopro 6hero black

Is this card the best for the GOPRO Hero6 Black SanDisk Extreme 128GB microSDXC UHS-3 Card - SDSQXAF-128G-GN6MA [Newest Version]

 

Or is it better to use a bigger GB card? and is this the best brand?

Re: what is best micro card to use for Gopro 6hero black

I personally wouldn't use SanDisk due to their reliability issues with the Ultra line of cards. I also wouldn't use such a big card unless you need to record that long at once or cannot switch cards (ex. the camera is mounted out of reach). It's safer to use multiple small cards to prevent losing all of your media in the event of a data corruption or lost card. Many users recommend the Lexar 633x line, and I find it works perfectly.

Hi @loyaldawn38483,

128 should be good enough. 
Don't go higher than that.
