You never have to worry about your pictures being corrupted anymore!
June 10, 2013
If you shoot videos more than you shoot RAW photos like me, then you know/should know that having a faster memory card is a necessity. I was told before that as long as the card is Class 10, there shouldn't be a problem. I was badly misinformed. Sure a Class 10 card is great, but speed and reliability is another.
I used to have three SanDisk Ultra 32GB Class 10 SDHC Memory Cards for my Rebel, Zoom recorder, and Canon camcorder. It worked fine with the recorder, it also worked fine with the camcorder but becomes inconsistent with constant play/pause. Then with my Rebel camera, whenever I press record, it always stops recording after 3 seconds. I usually have to press record twice then the second press would usually do the trick. I thought it was my camera overheating, or battery, but when I loaded faster memory cards such as this SanDisk Extreme one, I never came across any problems or disruptions while recording. Best part is, I can take continuous photos without the camera buffering too long, or none at all in my case.
I'm not sure how it compares with the Lexar Professional series but I know for a fact that this one is very durable.
Also, word of advice, with a faster memory card like this one, I suggest a faster card reader as well. The Lexar Dual Slot USB 3.0 card reader seems to be the most popular one, and you shouldn't have problems with connection if you're a Windows user. I've been told that Apple users get disconnected for some reason.
