Memory cards for smartphones, drones and cameras

Memory cards are used in many devices to back up image, video or audio material. The selection of cards available on the market is correspondingly large. For this reason, well-known manufacturers such as Sandisk, Transcend, Samsung, Hama, Intenso, Sony, PNY, Fujifilm or Lexar offer SD cards in sizes of 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512 GB, 1 TB or 2 TB.

The first cards with 1024 GB or 1 TB are now also available on Amazon. Here, however, you will mainly find no-name products, which I personally would not put much trust in. Data loss from an SD card can be very problematic under certain circumstances if it has stored photos or other data that cannot be recovered. For this reason, I only use branded products and in particular SanDisk memory cards, as I have never had any bad experiences with them.

types of memory cards

Most devices use SD cards, but there are other types of memory cards that I should briefly mention here (the SD card is also in the list):

  • SD cards (SDXC/SDHC/microSD cards)
  • CFexpress cards (CF/CompactFlash)
  • XQD cards
