Although the GoPro Hero 8 is out now, you can still buy the Hero 7 Black and for some people, it may be worth getting the older model. Sure, Hero 8 has better stabilization and some other features, but a lot of specs are pretty similar. When it comes to videos, the older model is still very capable and shoots 4K at up to 60 fps, as well as 1080p at up to 240 fps. Of course, there’s also the option to shoot 12MP stills. This means that with GoPro Hero 7 Black you still get a very capable action camera, but you’ll also save a decent amount of money. With all this in mind, let’s take a look at some of the best memory cards for GoPro Hero 7 Black.

First of all, we should mention that the GoPro 7 Black has a single microSD card slot, which supports UHS-I cards. Just as we mentioned earlier, this camera offers a variety of video recording modes. When you’re shooting in 4K at 60 fps and 1080p at 240 fps, it uses a codec that requires 78 Mbit/s (9.75 MB/s) of data throughput. This isn’t too demanding and all SD cards we’re about to show you are more than capable of handling this bitrate. Here are the best microSD cards for GoPro Hero 7 Black.

We want to leave you with the last bit of advice – don’t buy microSD cards larger than 256 GB, as they are not supported by this camera.
