memory card

Posts on memory cards

Even if the memory card is ultimately just a small part of a camera or drone, you should still pay a lot of attention to it, because it is the medium on which all video and photo recordings end up in the first step.

Unreliable memory cards can cause problems in a number of ways:

  • Error messages when recording
  • Video recordings aborted due to insufficient speed
  • Waiting times between taking individual photos
  • long waiting times when transferring the image material to the computer
  • Frame drops due to insufficient writing speed
  • unreadable files due to defective memory card

All of these points can be ruled out if you decide on a sufficiently large and fast memory card. In my posts, I try to help with the selection in this regard.
