What is the best memory card for GoPro? GoPro recommends using SD Class 10 memory cards in all camera models. GoPro recommends using Class 10 SD memory cards in all their Action camera models. This type of storage device is ideal for small to medium sized self-adjusting cameras such as GoPro. Normally, the microSD comes with an SD card adapter, for use in the notebook.



Why use the SD Class 10 card in GoPro?

You need to know that SD cards have numbers, corresponding to the speed class - the term determines the minimum sequential recording speed. That is, the guaranteed transfer rate all the time.


Full HD video recording requires a constant minimum recording rate to avoid so-called “frame drop” during capture, therefore, to perform smooth playback. The SD association has set standards for video quality.

  • Class 2: 2 MB / s minimum sequential recording speed;
  • Class 4: 4 MB / s minimum sequential recording speed;
  • Class 6: Minimum sequential recording speed of 6 MB / s;
  • Class 10: Minimum sequential recording speed of 10 MB / s.

So with a Class 10 SD card you can move the contents of your card to your PC faster and you can capture Full HD (1080p) video. Class 10 performance for 4K video is reasonable. For Ultra HD or 8k we recommend using micro SD cards with UHS Speed ​​Class U1 and U3 and Video Speed ​​Class V6, V10, V30, V60 and V90. The latter are usually more expensive in stores.
