Hello everyone. Just purchased a Canon 80D and will be needing to purchase an SD Card. Currently had a CF camera. Looking for at least a 32gb card. As far as brand not looking for any in particular. I was planning on purchasing a class 10 card as I read it writes faster. Is this true? Also did read that they don't last as long as the lower class. Anyone had experience with this type of card?

I did see this in amazon:

Thank you in advance.

Some mis-information in what you think.

Go to https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=17235080 and peruse the replies by "eelnoraa". He seems to be "in the business" so to speak as far as solid state memory devices.

When all is said and done, just go to Best Buy and get a Sandisk card, probably an "Extreme". One critical factor is to know your source; lots of counterfeit SD cards in the marketplace. My neighbors son is a regional manager with Best Buy and assures me that BB buys direct from Sandisk...no middleman or distributor. They can do this because they buy thousands at a time and then distribute to the stores.

I would not go larger than a 32GB. That card will hold a 1000 images as I recall (you can look it up) so if something happens to the card you have lost everything. I would perhaps recommend (2) 16 GB and swap them out when shooting.
