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.
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.
