Can anyone share their experience on Spark video file sizes? I estimate a 64 GB card will hold between 5 and 6 hours of recording. Is this correct?

It will all depend on the resolution you choose. I guess i get about 3 hours at 2.7K 30 FPS

Spark is 24fps and 1080p. No other choices.

DJI GO shows a 16 GB memory card can record 1:35.53 hours of video. So, a 64 GB memory card should be able to record 6:20 hours.

1080p @ 30fps with 24mbs per sec.
Which means about 1 minute = 200megs.

Its best to invest in multiple 16g cards than to put all your eggs in one 64gig card basket and lose it all (in the case you havent backed up).

Thanks all for your answers. Good idea to use multiple smaller cards.

I was calculating 64 GB / 24mpbs / 8 = 21.333 seconds = 355 minutes = 5 hours and 55 minutes

This. I still have a few 32GB cards if I'm filming in 4k, but 16 is plenty large in most cases, particularly a Spark.
