Best Memory Cards For The GoPro Hero5

Best GoPro Hero 5 Memory Card

Finding the right memory card for your GoPro Hero 5 or Session can be a daunting task. There are so many different brands with different specs and in different sizes.

So what cards work? Turns out, most of them.

This guide will go over what you need to know about which memory cards you'll need for your GoPro Hero5.

Uncompressed vs. Lossless - Fujifilm X-T2

Pacific Palisades Sunset

Remember when the Sony A7rII was released and we didn't have the option for uncompressed RAW and the Internet almost exploded with nerd rage?

Almost immediately Sony responded and gave us uncompressed RAW and a new trend was born, the option to pick between lossless and uncompressed.

When Fujifilm released the X-Pro 2 and the X-T2, they hoped on the trend train and gave the option between lossless and uncompressed right out of the gate. 

So now that we have the option to choose with the X-T2 and X-Pro 2, uncompressed vs. lossless, the question arises, does shooting with one versus the other actually make a difference?

Canon 1Dx Mark II - Fastest Cfast Memory Card

The Canon 1DX II with its insane burst speeds and memory card write speeds, now supports not only CF memory cards, but also the new CFast 2.0 memory card.

Whenever there is a new type of memory card on the market it always causes a little confusion. So to find out what's the best memory card, CF vs. CFast for the 1DX II, and the fastest CFast memory card, I've tested them all in camera.

And the results are pretty awesome.
