one more contact point, one more thing that could fail IMO...

the cards have extremely favorable reviews, 11000+ reviews with 4.6 rating. Fakespot shows they're legit reviews as well, so that's pretty safe.

SALT water proof, xray proof, extreme temp proof, they make pretty big claims, and have a nice warranty and reviews to back up their claims. Certainly worth a shot.

They'll work just not at UHSII speed thats all. Same for the A7III

I currently only have a 64gb Sony M which is R260/W100, so far so good, bought with the camera... I want to get a 128gb one though as i underestimated the file size from my A7III vs the 7dII (64gb on the A7III gets me about the same as the 32gb CF card i used in the 7D) I also have a Transcend 64gb card somewhere from my GX8 that i could use in a pinch but its a lot slower

TBH I would stick to Sandisk or Transcend because over the years both have been very good for me. I bought the Sony card because it was on special but i dont have as much personal experience with the cards to confidently recommend them...I'd also stick with full size SD for things that need full size SD because thats me and i dislike fumbling and messing with adapters.. MicroSD is very difficult for my hands to handle sadly :/

Which is why my phone has some absurdly fast 128gb Sandisk MicroSD stuffed in it so i dont have to muck about changing it...

dont ever take it out of the adapter!

I had the microsd from my drone, I used as a test to see how it would work in a camera. it's sort of hard to put it in and remove from the adapter....... and that's a good thing. The adapter essentially acts as a regular SD card, there is no operation that's different. If I had to fumble with the microsd, I simply would not recommend it. In practice, it behaves like any other SD card, it stays very secure and no way of accidentally removing it.

Eh i know its just i guess a quirk of mine, Full size SD = use a full size SD card to me... Im not criticizing you about it to be clear

Also its been a while since i posted ANYTHING so... Corgis

I use the try it, you might like it approach ;-)a

Tried it, performed well, bought some more

hard to argue with the costs, my uhs-ii card costs 8x more, but in practical terms, performs no better due to camera limitation. Only thing you need to be careful is the sizes, the 32 and 64GB sizes write at a significantly slower rate, posted in the specs. It's too bad the 256 card wasnt for sale, I would love to have a pair of those, 128 seems small when I'm machine gunning the A9 :-P

Was this taken with your FE 85GM Carlo? I like the thin DOF isolating them from the background.

I've been using a new polish, the one on the left, since I bought a pair of shoes that require polishing and I'm very pleased with the results I've gotten from it. So, I was inspired to try the Mirror Gloss polish too. It arrived in the mail this afternoon and I'll check it out tomorrow.

TY Gene.

Yes it was the 85GM. I'm up to my neck in fall family photos, and this lens is handling probably 90% of the work. I've had the lens for two years and am way past the honeymoon phase, but it never fails to disappoint.

Interesting, I never considered using adapted micro sd before

Charlie wrote in post #18764192 (external link)
yes, I know it's microSD, and I think that's the way things are trending these days. I was skeptical, but specs will be specs, 90MB/s write seems to keep up as expected. On top of that, it'll work for my drone interchangeably, so I decided to go that route. At worst, I can return it if it didnt live up to the spec.

I didnt have issues with it, handles highest bitrate video (my 64GB older 45mb/s couldnt handle). It stays secure in the adapter, been using for a few weeks now on a daily basis.

Personally I'd be very uneasy about them. For camera use.
I've experienced failures to connect to a micro SD in an adapter.
A simple bump that doesn't hurt the device but is enough to temporarily cause it to lose contact.

The good thing is it's only a connectivity issue, not a card failure..

I've also had my Samsung tablets with micro SD on board say no card inserted or similar. A reboot normally fixes that.
Only rarely remove and reinsert (whilst device off)

One less set of contacts to mess with.
Dollar savings aren't so great (here) to justify it.

After a couple of light applications of the Mirror Gloss...not bad so far. I did polish my shoes earlier today with the Pate de Luxe.

Again, not applicable. I keep it in the SD adapter at all times. There is no reason to remove the bare micro card.

The way I use a micro SD in my camera is different than in device use like a drone. With the camera, it's permanently in the adapter. That means that it can be inserted directly to any SD card reader. And unlike many adapters, the SD card adapter is not the ejecting type and it takes effort to remove the card, not happening on accident.

Think of it as a full sized SD. Exactly how it is used in practice.

It's certainly very unconventional, but since it works better than my older cards, more compatible, very highly rated, I'm giving it a shot. It's not like these are junk no name brand cards, samsung makes tons of SSD products.

Charlie I was referring to use permanently in the adapter.
In case of tablet - yes its not in adapter, but still a connectivity matter.
And I'm referring to Samsung cards - Pro and Evo

I just don't trust them and only making a comment.
We all have different experiences. I'm just sharing mine.

I do know the grief in losing a whole days data (surveying) when a card spits the dummy unexpectedly. Happened when I just let the pole drop 100mm onto the bitumen - not the recorder, but it was attached to the pole. They are made to stand 1.2 metres drop onto concrete and keep going. The jolt was enough to upset it.
It's a bit shattering to say the least and costly when you have to repeat all again.
Photos - you can't repeat.

I don't have a problem with being unconventional - whilst it works.

Just another thought. If I had a camera under warranty I wouldn't put myself in a place where they could refuse a claim.
Even a non legitimate refusal (where they say it's probably not the card, but we can't discount a non standard use.....) can't be argued with if they refuse to honour their warranty.
I'd be more concerned about that than how well it works.
