Which SD?

So, the new hero 7 black is on its way, but I’ve no memory cards for it yet. I see a lot of people say they get multiple 64 gig ones. But there is a 128 gig one. Why not that? Just curious here. Any input would be appreciated.

Is it just easier to write to the 64 over the 128?

Hi @bushcraftjoe,

 

 

Please check that

https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/microSD-Card-Considerations

 

I personally use 64GB based on my experience 128 glitches a lot. Some don't encounter that issue but I'd rather use a small SD card that I can replace if something happened.

 

Regards,

-Jay

Re: Which SD?

Thank you so much for this information. The last thing that I want to have happen is try to record, out on a hike and it glitch on me, or to get back and find that I’ve lost everything. That would be very aggravating.

Re: Which SD?

 

Yup @bushcraftjoe,

 

It would be a good habit to test the SD card and reformat before and after every trip. 

 

Just create a back up. 

 

Regards,

Re: Which SD?

I plan on loading everything to my PC after each use, and then formatting. Thank you for that advice!
