Many people get confused between MB/s megabytes per second and Mbps megabits per second, The big B is byte and small b is bit but many muck these up and Im sure there are times I have written it wrong too
The video bitrates are in megabits but sd cards are rated in megabytes. 1 megabyte = 8 megabits so c10 at 10MB/s can do 80Mbps and faster cards at 35MB/s can write at 280Mbps so a c10 card is enough to write all protune modes, the highest rate I have seen a hero3 black record in was 55mbps in 2.7k so they do at times go above the rate in the specs.
Also hero3 cameras work with micro SD not regular sized SD cards so make sure your aware of that if your getting a hero3 camera.
