  Solid and reliable, but not great for full HD video

| | See all Scotty81's reviews (3)

I'm a Director and photographer who uses D-SLR cameras to shoot with. I have two of these cards, and for photography they are great. They look like they can withstand more-than-average damage and impacts and according to the manufacturers specifications, they can.

However, if you're shooting full HD video I've noticed a few times that the camera will buffer and then display a message saying the recording has been stopped. This is because the cards are not fast enough to record such incredible amounts of data. I'd say one out of 10 times it's done this to me (once during an interview where my wide shot stopped recording during the shoot).

If you need an SD card that will record FULL HD video, you need the SanDisk Extreme Pro cards that record up to 45MB/s. Bear in mind these are SDHC cards that aren't fully compatible with older model cameras, phones, etc.

If you're a photographer and need an SD card that can withstand a burst of photos with little need of buffering, these cards are perfectly acceptable.

For the tech geeks, I use a Canon 7D and 550D running the Magic Lantern firmware supplement.

Got the card for my camera and was not let down. Read and write speeds are quick (perfect for HD recording.) Love the brushed aluminium look just a shame I dont see it with it being inside the camera.

  Quality item at a good price.

I wanted a SD card to use in my car stereo and this fits the bill perfectly. This is clearly a quality branded product made by Samsung. It comes complete with a rubber card holder and the card itself looks as it is would withstand bangs and knocks. Nice item!

This is an excellent hi-speed card for capturing stills and HD movies on modern digital cameras. The card is also very robust and comes with a silicone protective sleeve. Altogether a product that performs exceedingly well and oozes quality. Therefore, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

* Since writing the above I have just tried this Samsung product with the Pentax K-X DSLR and can confirm that the card has coped with over seven minutes of HD video from that particular camera with no bother at all.

  Excellent SDHC class 6 with Silicone waterproof card holder

I was not disappointed and now using it in my new Panasonic ZX3 camera. The product is fine.Remove it from my camera and plug it into Panasonic 42" TV perfect Avchd Movie and Pictures. Silicone Holder is excellent Idea Well done Samsung keep it up.

A note of warning however and that is to read the instruction booklet with your camera well BEFORE purchasing this item since it might not be compatible with your camera.
