Sony 32 GB Class 10 SDHC
Advantages: Large capacity, Fast speed, Fine design, Reliable so far
Disadvantages: Bit pricey
I have used this SD card mainly for my camera but also for a camcorder too. It has an enormous capacity - one much larger than most other SD cards you will find on the market. This means that you can store thousands of photos and 960 minutes of high definition video to be precise. Made by Sony, you can expect it to be pretty reliable too.
The card comes in a little box with a plastic covering over the SD card. This covering is transparent so you can see right through to the card. The card itself has a blue plastic coating and a mostly yellow sticker on the front with a rainbow pattern along the top. You can clearly see that it is the 32GB version from the card itself as well as the box. You can also get 8GB and 16GB versions of this product if you don't wish to spend as much money and think that'll suit your needs.
The card easily comes out the box once you rip it open and it can then be inserted into any portable devices such as cameras or camcorders for use. It can hold over 13,000 photos, which makes it excellent if you are a keen photographer. I used to have to delete photos off my SD card every now and then but with this new one I find myself keeping the same photos on all the time as it hasn't yet got near to full up! I have also had no issues using it with a camcorder, which happened to be a Sony one too. The video quality once played back has turned out to be excellent and it's all there thanks to the large capacity of the card.
You can transfer all your media to a computer by inserting the card in the SD card slot. My Macbook I am typing on now has a slot in the side and most modern computers will have one, whether it is under a little cover or not. It's about 3cm wide. Sometimes you will have to get the SD card in position and then quickly slot it in as the computer will only recognise it then. If you slowly put it in, it is sometimes not recognised and you will have to take it out and try again. It should always be safely removed like other devices to prevent any corruption of files on there.
The SD card can transfer material at a rate of up to 20MB/s on devices supporting SD 3.0, which is the latest technology for SD cards. This is super quick and makes loading photos and especially long movies onto your computer a lot faster and more efficient!
You can store music on the card too - around 8000 songs in fact. It is currently priced on Amazon.co.uk at around £37, which isn't a bad price for the capacity. I have had no problems with it and it generally seems to be highly rated amongst other reviews. I'd certainly recommend this for all your storage needs, especially for cameras and camcorders.
Thanks for reading
