Check https://bestphotograph​ygear.com/best-memory-cards-canon-t6/ (external link)

The article suggests Transcend, but that I think is driven by price. Either of the Sandisk will work just as well in a T6.


Likely either are fine. But I would use care in buying something "all genuine."

You hashed this topic back in August of 2018 and the replies haven't really changed much. Back then, in reply #12, eelnoraa stated

Between these, just get Extreme if you want to save some money. T6 isn't likely to be able take full advantage of Extreme Pro.

eelnoraa is in the business and typically provides excellent information.

The point is, and this is my opinion, most importantly buy from a reputable source. I would not buy using online sources except for the big reputable sources like Adorama or B&H. My personal choice is to buy from a local Best Buy when what you want is on sale. I know a regional manager and he has told me that BB buys directly from the Sandisk importer by the thousands, and then distribute as needed down to the local stores. The product goes from Sandisk > Best Buy. There is no middle man to worry about and thus the chance of a counterfeit card is minimized. "Yes" the card might be $2 more than it is from some unknown online source, but I know the source.

You can buy direct from Sandisk as well. The 32 GB Extreme is $13, see https://shop.sandisk.c​om …0/varProductID.​5122411700 (external link). However, shipping is additional but print the ad and take it to Best Buy for a price match.

full HD video only require class10 kind of speed, so both Ultra and Extreme and up will do. From reliability point of view, get Extreme. The memory quality is better. But no need spend extra for Extreme plus or pro because for your application, the increase in speed even when compare to Ultra won't matter at all.

In memory tests of the T6, the Sandisk Extreme 95MB/sec tested as fast as 78MB/sec, while the fastest of the Ultra 40MB/sec tested at 41MB/sec.

It must be understood that some Extreme are NOT as fast...the Sandisk Extreme 45MB/sec are measured down to 41MB/sec, so all Extreme are NOT FASTER than Ultra necessarily!
