SD Eject Sticking With Lexar Card?

Well, I just received my new 6D back from B&H after having to return the first one and noticed something strange. I pressed the SD card to eject it, but it didn't pop up fully. It remained mostly inserted, but if I grabbed and pulled up it came right out. I thought that this may be an issue with the SD card, so I tried my SanDisk and there was no resistance and popped right out. Has this happened to anyone else? I just don't want the card to get stuck there.

Thank you,

David

The Lexar card was probably a little swollen because it had so much information stored on it. Format it and it should slim down. ;-)a

Pretty sure you know I'm kidding.

I've had the same thing happens a couple of times, not just in my cameras. Never really gave it much thought. Just make sure there are no burrs on the edges. If it continues to do it I'd probably just replace the card.


Remember what the DorMouse said.....feed your head.

If it slides in and out easily until it latches the side edges are probably OK. But I've had to very slightly kiss the edges at the contact end with a nail file.

Just don't let your better half know.

I hate SD cards. I wish that my new 6D Mark.ii camera used CD cards instead of SD types. The CF is indestructible...

I just got a 5D4 two months ago and the first time I went to remove the SD card it didn't pop out normally like in the OP's situation. So I pulled it out too and there was a slight resistance. This only occurred the very first time I removed a card and hasn't happened since. I don't think its anything to worry about. Now that I think about it my Lexar 2-slot card reader did the same thing (and again only once). I'd guess SD devices come with the internal contacts "leaning" a bit for tightness. Again - just a guess.
