We have been using an old SD card for our camera. It is a 16GB SDHC class 4 card. Class 4 requires that a card has a minimum sequential write speed of 4 MB/s, which is not very fast. We have been running out of storage very often lately and decided now is the time to upgrade. We choose a card that would would for almost everyone of you and are bringing this review to you. But before that,
So, What Card Did We Get?
We need up buying a Kingston Canvas React 256GB SDXC UHS-I Class 10 Card. This card provides us with 16x the capacity of the old PNY card in the same form-factor.
We tested our new SD card using Blackmagic, just like the one, using a 2GB stress. The card was observed at 75.3 MB/s write and 90.6 MB/s read (these numbers are within our margin of error to the speeds claimed). This is fast enough to run a VM off of or even Final Cut Pro X. These speeds also can allow some 8K footage to be recorded.
According to Blackmagic, this card can handle recording 2K DCI 25 format in ProRes 422 HQ and Cinema DNG RAW and for most general purpose cameras (video and pictures), this card can handle 4K video recording.
Yes. We recommend this card due to its high capacity, write and read speed, and good price. You can get the card off of Amazon by going here.
