    Hi I'm thinking of putting a 64g sd card in my camera on my P3S do I need to format it or put any firmware on it before I put the card in or can I just put it in straight from the packet

    No. Most cases it ready to go. Make sure you get one with a card reader or flash drive. Most come with it. Only way to go as 2.7k video files are large. And they will not transfer via wi-fi

    It should work without formatting it. If you want to format it, it would be best to do it from within the DJI GO app.

    Since you have a P3S, you do not need to copy firmware to the memory card to install it. If a new firmware update is available, the DJI GO app will prompt you to install it -- and, download and install the update if you choose to do so.

    Yes, as msinger says, any problems with it. Format with the app.
