I have an assignment and decided to order two of these^. It completely slipped my mind about the class speed (my cards have always been Class 10 32gig). These came today and I noticed they are Class 4. I have a Canon 6D Mark 1. I am shooting 24fps 1080p. Will this card work?

I have run some tests, and it seems fine when I throw the footage in Premiere. I don't notice any dropped frames. I also did some continuous shooting and it seemed fine. But, I don't want to get into the middle of the desert and be stuck. I think it is OK, but looking for some advice. Thanks

See https://www.sandisk.co​m/about/legal/hd (external link) which says Class 4 should be OK for HD video but not "Full" HD video.

OK, so the answer is no, since I am shooting in 1080p (Full HD). Damn it. What a waste of $50.

Do you live in Brooklyn like your profile says? Go to Best Buy, see https://www.bestbuy.co​m …d/3142571.p?sku​Id=3142571 (external link) for $29. A much more reliable source than Amazon!

I do live in BK. But, I also have Amazon Prime which delivers within 12 hours. This is totally my fault as the class system didn't occur to me. I can't believe with how cheap SD cards are nowadays that they still have this Class system which was fine for 2009, but seems very silly in 2017. As I was just saying to a colleague, I essentially I bought a car without knowing that I specifically had to order seat-belts. That might have been a thing in 1923, but ridiculous in 2017.

Thanks everyone for the help.

Use care with Amazon. Counterfeits of Sandisk cards are common. Known the difference between

An important distinction: “Fulfilled by Amazon” means that the company is managing and shipping products listed by 3rd-party retailers, while “Ships from and sold by Amazon.com” means Amazon is selling the product itself. Sticking with the latter is a safe bet if you want to avoid counterfeit goods.

There is no middleman with Best Buy. Corporate BB buys by the thousands and then distributes directly to the stores.

It doesn't matter where you buy from, you still have to do your research! BB is sooo expensive but you can have it right now! Until amazon drops in on your doorstep with a drone, BB is the way to go, and you can ask someone that knows about what you're buying so you don't purchase the wrong thing. Yes, I speak from experience so I am not judging, lol!

Losing your photos because of a faulty card is even more expensive.

Best buy will price match with Amazon. Open the amazon app, scan the barcode on the product at Best Buy and show the cashier.

Yeah Best Buy is good about matching Amazon prices. Wow, didn't even know class 4 SD cards were still around. Looks like for the same price, you can get USH-1 cards (which begin to reach the max for SD slot on the Canon slots).

I would suggest don't do it. Speed Class was invented to mimic video recording where incoming data is at certain bit rate in a open ended fashion. So the camera or the card don't know the size of the data as data is recorded. This is very different than still image where each write, the camera or the card know exactly how big the each file is.

In the case open ended write, you usually won't see issue for the first time you write the card because there is no "garbage collection" needed. There usually no issue if you continuously write the card at its full capacity. The issue arise if you start shooting many multiple clips. Some of the clip may not be written as fast as other. After all, the card is guaranteed at 4MB/s only. So sure you may get aways with most of the 1080P clips, but some of them will sure have drip frame. What if that happens to the one you want? If the video footage is important to you, it is not worth it.

Most likely old stocks. As far as I know, Sandisk has NOT produced Class4 card for a long time.
