Which brand of MicroSD card do you use?

I’ve long been a fan of SanDisk but just lately have been having the odd issue or two.

Debating investing in a 64GB MicroSD card - just wondering if any of you have a brand preference?

Looking potentially at Lexar:


Or Samsung:


Or Kingston:


Any thoughts on those three?

Are they all much of a muchness?

My only input would be to get U3 cards if your recording in 4K from those examples the Samsung is the only U3

I agree with Steven The Samsung U3, never had a issue with them not like Sandisk nothing but trouble…

Two votes has convinced me, just ordered the 64Gb Samsung U3 from Amazon.

I’ve also bought an Anker USB3 microsd reader.

I’m determined to get to the bottom of this ‘black frame’ / ‘Error 10008’ issue :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:

I always sandisk cards in all devices, never had a problem with them.

Interesting… Ever had any problems with iMovie or FCP @Creaky mate?

I use windows so never used either of them


In which case, do you want to buy a 64GB SanDisk? It’s only a month old :slight_smile:

I don’t need any at the moment, I’ve got 4 already. Thanks anyway.

Agree with @Creaky, I’ve used Sandisk cards on a number of devices, including my GoPros, and never had a problem. In fact my Mavic Pro came fitted with a 16Gb Sandisk microSD. :slight_smile:

Have you ever used them on a Mac with iMovie or FCP there @Londroner ?

I should perhaps start a new thread on this issue - unless of course my new Samsung card solves it :wink:

No. Like @Creaky I’m a Windows/PC man. I usually use the SD adapter card to transfer data from the microSD to my computer. It’s quick and easy.

I’m a Sandisk user also.

My mavic came with a 16gb Sandisk Extreme

I have since upgraded to the Sandisk Extreme Pro larger capacity (various sizes 32/64)

No problems here

I’m on a mac but it is a pain in the arse to get round the back to the card slot, so I use a usb card reader that I can drop several types of cards in that easily drops in to my 10 port USB hub.

I use sandisk also and always have! but i never buy bigger than 32gb.

Id rather have 2 32’s than a 64 card.
Reason being if i think i’ve shot some good footage at one location ill remove the card from the craft before flying again, this way if i loose the craft i havn’t lost all my previous flight footage :slight_smile:
Plus. A 32 will happily hold upto 1hr 30 of 4k footage… a mavic wont fly that long!

I edit on a macbook pro also and have no problems using the card slot on the side :slight_smile:

I would prob use Lexar also… just because the mavic’s are provided with those cards :slight_smile:

PNY, Samsung & Sandisk
I find the PNY are best for 4K never have any issues. I also only use 32gb

I use the Lexar High-Performance 633x microSDHC/microSDXC UHS-I In my Osmo Pro Combo as it the Cards The x5 Camera comes with from DJI and the SanDisk Extreme Pro 64GB which writes at 100MB/s the SanDisk Extreme 64G UHS 3 that only writes at 60MB/s

I Do Use To stop Black outs, You need a Lexar 1000x Card that Is UHS 3 Class 10 and it must write at over 150 MB/s


The Sony RX10 IV Needs a Lexar 2000x Card that is UHS 3 Class 10 to shot 4K 264fps and above Slow motion and writes at 300MB/s
