GoPro 5 Black is here!

關注於動作攝影機已有兩三年了吧,一直在Sony 與 GoPro之間遊蕩。為了即將開始的Road Trip,有恰當的理由可以入手了!可以錄起我最愛的運動:衝浪,滑板,滑雪,潛水!

Choice of memory card for 4K recording

SanDisk Extreme 128GB
Samsung Pro Plus 64GB

I bought the SanDisk Extreme 128GB first, then I found out that it is incompatible with GoPro 5 Black. After searching online, it seems that every SanDisk card with UHS-speed 3 has issue.
Then I got another one which is Samsung Pro plus 64GB, which works well.


Whilst using SanDisk Extreme, I had to insert and remove the SD card 4 or 5 times to get it work when the GoPro is on. This is very annoying and it is impossible to do that when you are doing sports.


Updated: After the firmware v1.57 of GoPro5, SanDisk Extreme 128GB works really well!!!

With Mac OS 10.9 (Mavericks) and later, Apple has built their own version of the FTDI VCP driver into the operating system (AN134).

If you have that issues, solution is referred to this site:
