Before you leave, we also wanted to mention one last thing – for most people the best option would be to get a 128 GB card or two, but even 64 GB cards are a pretty good choice. You can also get a 256 GB card if you think you’ll shoot a lot of videos and don’t want to swap cards, but don’t buy bigger cards than that because 256 GB is the limit for this GoPro.
