What SD Card For The GoPro Hero7 Series? It super important that you use the best memory cards possible with your GoPro camera whether it’s the GoPro Hero7, Hero6, Hero5 or indeed any of the GoPro cameras currently available. The following SD micro memory cards are approved for use in the GoPro Hero7 Black, Silver and White editions by GoPro themselves.
All of the cards listed below are fast and you’ll need fast and reliable if you are shooting at high resolutions. We are currently running the Lexar, Sandisk Extreme and Samsung EVO cards in our GoPro Hero7.
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. Now this doesn’t matter if your camera is a GoPro, DJI, Contour, Garmin, Sony , Nikon or whatever because without a good memory card you may struggle to capture the video footage you want.
The Speed Class Rating is the official unit of speed measurement for all SD cards, including both full and micro sized versions. Speed Class is a minimum speed based on a worst case scenario test and represents the minimum transfer rate of data that the card is capable of.
It’s no great surprise that GoPro have a new camera coming out as it was all over the net a few weeks ago when a store display unit was photographed showing the promo shots for the new series of cameras.
Replacement parts are available for all of the GoPro range but I prefer to try and prevent any damage particularly when the camera and case are in my bag. One of easiest parts to damage is the lens of both the camera itself and the lens area on waterproof case. Damage to either of these will ruin footage.
I’ve been looking at the range of GoPro accessories I currently have to assess whether or not I would buy them again. Here is a very quick run down of the “Keepers” and the “Binned”. There has been fair bit of trial and error over the last few years but I think that I have narrowed things down to kit that works and is actually worth getting.
Most accessories will work with the entire GoPro range.
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.
One of the biggest areas that is overlooked when getting a video/camera setup for trips out is the speed of the your SD card. Many ask what is the best SD card for my GoPro camera? The GoPro HD Hero3 and 3 Plus series of cameras support Micro SD cards up to 64GB.
The choices of GoPro Hero 3 And 3 Plus micro SD cards is huge. Hopefully my trial and error over the last few years will point you in the right direction.
I have updated this post to ensure that the best cards possible are identified. This post also now contains references to the Hero 4 range of cameras.
The camera is the Silver edition which is essentially the Hero 2 but with built in Wifi. You may therefore ask what is the point of changing. Well for me its down to weight and it is this that prompted the purchase. As I wear my GoPro on my Sweet Strutter the less weight the better. I have received a great deal of stick in the past about weighing kit, but I make no apology in taking the time to weigh the GoPro 3 both with and without its case. If this offends you please leave this page now. Continue reading
