GoPro fans are lining up for the latest GoPro camera, the HERO11. As with older HERO models such as last year’s HERO10, the HERO11 camera is packaged with a smaller capacity microSD card that will quickly fill up. If you have a GoPro you’ll want to upgrade your card so your camera doesn’t run out of storage capacity while shooting your 4K UHD videos.

What are the best microSD cards for the GoPro HERO11?

Due to the HERO11’s impressive processing, GoPro recommends a fast micro SDXC card with at least a v30 or UHS-1 rating. Slower cards may cause noticeable “lag” in any high-def recording, so go with the faster cards. Fast write speeds are crucial!

Also consider how many hours of 4K video you’ll be recording. Capacity makes a BIG difference! A 32GB card will only store about 45 minutes of 4K (60fps) video, while a 128GB card can store over 3 hours. Make sure your card doesn’t run out of storage while you are recording your latest outdoor (or underwater) adventure!
