In today’s article, we would like to talk about memory cards of form factor SD (Secure Digital). If we want to buy an SD card, what is the first thing we think about? What is the main purpose of the card going to be? Some of you will probably start to think about the brand, but apart from that it is important to look deeper, or in other words, we need to check the specifications.
Let’s take a look at the specifications of SD cards from TEAMGROUP and understand for which group of users these cards were created.
The most common and popular types of SD Cards are SDHC and SDXC formats. SDHC ( High Capacity ) ranges from 4GB to 32GB, and are the most common format today which means that most devices are compatible. SDXC (eXtended Capacity ) ranges from 64GB to 2TB, which also have more speed in transferring data compared to the aforementioned SDHC.
Let’s talk more about data transfer. In today’s article, all the Four SD cards of TEAMGROUP have UHS (Ultra High Speed) technology. The cards are also in the category of Video Speed Class (V) from V10 to V60. TEAMGROUP’s SD Cards are the answer to the increasing demand for high resolution and high-quality video recording. These SD cards are all waterproof, X-Ray proof and dustproof which makes them the best companion for travel bloggers and outdoor photographers.

What Capacity should I choose for my Camera?
Recommended capacity will vary based on purpose since everyone has different needs. For example, if you use your camera only for taking pictures, a capacity of 32GB-64GB should be enough for you. However, if you take pictures but also shoot videos, then 128GB-256GB may prove more beneficial. The Classic and Elite Card is a perfect solution for this.
What card should I choose for 4K or 8K resolution?
For professional photo and videographers who shoot up to 4K resolution, you can also use The Elite Card. If you need a higher data transfer speed however, TEAMGROUP recommends buying The Pro SD Card that has R/W up to 100/90MB/s to save your time.
While shooting in Full HD and 4K is becoming mainstream, shooting in 8K resolution is also now an option. In terms of file sizes and storage, 8K is four times the number of pixels as 4k, which leads to very large file sizes when shooting. This makes it ever more important for the videographer to choose the right SD card. With this in mind, The XTREEM Card is here to save the day. With the technology of V60 and up to 250/120MB/s data transfer you can focus more on doing what you love and spend less time transferring files.
