Wondering which microSD card sizes work with the GoPro Fusion – GoPro’s first dedicated 360° camera? You’ve landed at the right spot. In this post, you’ll learn about all the microSD card sizes that are compatible with the GoPro Fusion, and how long each size variant can record.

So, let’s get started.

 

MicroSD Card Specifications for GoPro Fusion


Before proceeding to the size, it’s essential that you first know the basic specifications of the SD cards compatible with GoPro Fusion. Fusion features two micro SD card slots and uses two microSD cards to be able to capture 360° shots. So, you’ll need two SD cards with this 360-camera.

Moving to the specs, Fusion supports minimum Class 10 or UHS-I micro SD memory cards. You can also use the newer and faster UHS-II micro SD cards with Fusion as these cards are backward compatible. However, you won’t really get the advantage (in terms of extra speed) of the UHS-II technology when the card is in the camera.

GoPro Fusion SD Card Size


As per the official GoPro website, the GoPro Fusion supports microSD cards with storage sizes up to 128GB. However, I’ve used the camera with 256GB microSD cards, and it works perfectly with that also.

So, you can use the following storage size variants with your GoPro Fusion camera:

  • 16GB
  • 32GB
  • 64GB
  • 128GB
  • 256GB

However, I recommend that you use at least a 32GB SD card pair with Fusion if you don’t want to end up with low storage space frequently.
