    does anyone know if it's possible to transfer 4K footage directly from a GoPro hero4 black to an iPad Pro 9.7?

    Yes, easily possible, but you WILL want to invest in an SD card to lighting adapter. The transfer rate and speed via wi-if is quite unreliable

    Btw microsd > sdcard > lightning

    That would be over USB 2 speed. If you want USB 3 transport speed it has to be iPP 12".

    Do you happen to know what speed I'd get with USB 2?

    I've done it on a 6s plus while on vacation and found the wifi speeds acceptable. I don't have an empirical number to quantify the speed but I wasn't complaining.

    Was that 4K 60fps over wifi using the GoPro app? I thought it wouldn't let you transfer that large of file via the app?

    USB 2.0 has a theoretical speed of 60MB/s (480Mb/s).

    Ah, crap. Not sure. It was a combination of video clips (not sure what quality I was recording) and 600+ pictures.
