One of the biggest areas that is overlooked when getting a video/camera setup for trips out is the speed of the your SD or Micro SD card. If you have just picked up one of these news cameras you might well be asking what is the best memory card for the GoPro Hero5 Session.
As cameras have become more capable the need for faster cards with greater capacity has become more important.
We have one of the first GoPro Hero5 cameras on its way to Unsponsored HQ. Is this camera going to be a game changer or just another incremental improvement?

Picking the right GoPro for your needs is forever getting a little more challenging. The range is expanding/changing on an annual basis. At the moment GoPro have three slightly different spec’d cameras based on the GoPro Hero 3 and GoPro Hero 3 Plus platform.
At the top of the range is the GoPro Black 3+, closey followed by the Silver 3+ and then finally the White 3 which has been carried over from last years range. There is no GoPro Hero 3 Plus White edition at this moment in time.
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. Buying a good quality fast Micro SD card can make the difference between getting the video or not.
