  1. Ultimate share!!

    They are very compact size cameras so they work well on helmets, helicopters, and other areas where a larger camera can’t fit well.

  2. i bought the samsung EVO sdx 64gb for my gopro4 black, after giving me endless sd errors and re formating the card varios times i looked into it further, this card has a memroy rate of 48mb/s apparently you need a lot faster memory rate for the high quality settings, like the sandisk ultra pro (90mb/s). look carefully at which card you buy, as not all class 10 micro sd will work correctly with the gopro hero 4 black!!

  3. […] Not upgrading any time soon? We have guides for the GoPro Hero5 here and an overview of the best memory cards for the other GoPro cameras too. […]
