Frequently asked questions
What size SD card is best for GoPro?
It depends on the length of videos you are planning to record and their resolution. If you are not planning on recording long 4K videos, 32 GB or 64 GB SD cards will be enough. Otherwise, consider buying an SD card with larger storage capacity. For example, SanDisk 128 GB Extreme A2 V30 Micro SD. This SD card is recommended by GoPro in their Works with GoPro Guide.
Can you use a GoPro without an SD card?
There are cameras that have built-in memory that stores videos and photos. You can use them without an SD card. GoPro doesn’t have built-in memory, so it’s not possible to record a video or take a photo with it unless you insert an SD card into your GoPro.
How many minutes of 4K video is 32 GB?
It depends on the frame rate and the bitrate of the video. A 32 GB SD card allows you to record a 4K video with 60fps frame rate and high bitrate for 60 minutes.
Can I use a 128 GB SD card in GoPro?
GoPro cameras from HERO 4 up to HERO 8 support a wide range of microSD cards including 128 GB cards. You can use even larger cards with 256 and 512 GB storage capacity.
