It’s important to use one of the recommended Micro SD cards in your camera, or you may experience freeze-up or video corruption issues. If your camera has had an issue it is probably down to the Micro SD card being used. This applies whether you are using a GoPro, Contour, Drift, Sony or indeed any other type of action/POV camera.
