This article discusses how to choose a suitable memory SD card for your Insta360 One R camera and provides a recommended list for you. If you want a quick overview, here it is:
Before you buy any new sd card, the first thing you need to check is the system requirement:
- UHS-I V30 speed class, exFAT(FAT64) format SD cards with a max storage of 1T are recommended.
That is to say you can only use Micro SD cards with a V30 (30MB/S of write speed) or above write speed, and you need to format the card to exFAT(FAT64) file format.

Insta360 One R SD Card Buying Guide
Here are a few things you need to consider before buying a new SD card for your Insta360 One R.
1. Follow the Manufacture’s Recommendation
The first thing you need to consider is what Insta360 recommends you to use. Before releasing, Insta360 has tested some micro SD cards to make sure the camera is compatible. For the One R, there are 6 compatible Sandisk SD cards you can find in the list. If you don’t have a specific brand preference, it’s recommended to choose from the list.
2. Write Speed
The most important thing when choosing an sd card is the write speed. Normally, we don’t pay attention to the write speed rather than the read speed. When recording 4K or 5.3K videos, the write speed should be at least 30MB/S. If you use a card that has a lower write speed, your footage will probably be damaged or the shooting may just stops.
SD cards issues are pretty common. It’s better to only use a card from a known brand in this aera. Failing to use an approved memory sd card may lead to slowdowns, stopped recordings, glitching video, corrupted files, total data loss, camera freezes, and other issues.
4. How many SD cards are enough?
According to our experience, Two SD cards makes a good balance for your Insta360 One R. If one of your card is full and you forget to download the files, you will have a spare one to use. There are also cases that your sd card may throws an error. If you only have one card, you will not be able to use your camera.
5. How to choose the SD Card capacity?
It really depends on you. When shooting in 5.7K, a 32GB sd card can hold a footage of nearly 43 minutes long. If you don’t often use your Insta360 One R, then two 32GB SD cards are pretty enough for you. Otherwise, you should get a larger one.
