I'm not an expert in that but I use my GP in a certain way. Usually I video an outing and then download the files into my editing software, edit, and save the final result to my computer with a backup on an external 1tb HD. After that I erase my gopro memory. So, I need less GB capable cards as I don't store videos on them.

It used to be 2GB was good, Now I have 32GB but... big but.... I still shoot 1080. The new gopros shoot 4K and that takes a lot more memory.

Sorry I don't know more.

Turning the cam on and off to catch highlights (to stitch together later) will save more memory than leaving it on for the whole ride, if its a long one. Short files also help when it comes to editing as downloading huge files takes a lot of processor power, especially in 4K.

You'll have to decide whether you want to edit videos and how you will store the final product. That will guide how much memory you need and how you will shoot.
