Here’s a question we’re asked a lot on our facebook group “GoPro Hero Community”: Which MicroSD card is the best for a GoPro? Well, there’s no simple answer to this question. This is because not all SD cards match the requirements to ensure a fast playback and recording of high-resolution and high frame rate videos (eg. 4k at 60fps). Also, when it comes to size of the SD card, different GoPro models support different storage size ranges.

In this article, we have tried to make things easy for you if you’re looking for an Scheda SD for your GoPro Hero camera, but are confused about which size and model to choose from.

GoPro Recommended SD Cards


Nella scelta della scheda microSD più adatta alle vostre esigenze è necessario tenere conto di varie considerazioni, tra cui: capacità, velocità di scrittura, affidabilità e costi.

La capacità (o il tipo di carta) comprende due opzioni rilevanti: SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) e SDXC (Secure Digital extended Capacity). L'unica differenza importante tra le due è la soglia di 32GB. Le schede SDHC si trovano in 32GB e inferiori capacità, e SDXC sono tipicamente 64GB e oltre.

Next, you need consider write speed or speed class of the microSD card for your GoPro. While the company recommends a minimum of Class 10, the newer Class 10 cards may also have a UHS (Ultra high Speed) or VSC (Video Speed Class) classification. However, these multiple ratings can prove to be a bit confusing.

Parole finali


I hope that this article answers your question: What SD card size is best for my GoPro? Short answer: it really depends on the model you’re using and the length of videos you are planning to record along with their resolution and frame rate. If you are not planning on recording long 4K videos, then 32 GB or 64 GB SD cards will be enough. Otherwise, consider buying an SD card with larger storage capacity (at least 128 GB).
