"Which SDHC card?"



Hi,
There are so many cards out there and I'm a bit confused. I shoot mainly photos, but occasional videos. Shoot JPEG Fine/Large. I know it's best to use class 6 or 10, but which brand and type? Thanks for your help. Have a great day.
Phil

We don't know which camera body you use but the instruction manual will tell you the brand, size and type of the cards you can use. For example the D3200 Approved memory card table shows cards in class 6 or faster and from 2 GB SD cards to 128 GB SDHC cards and SDXC cards from 48 GB to 64 GB from SanDisk, Toshiba, Panasonic and Lexar. I'm sure there are cards made by other companies that work but these were tested by Nikon when the manual and camera were released.

The D5100 manual pretty much lists the same cards as the D3200. The D5100 is a slightly older body so the manual is lacking a couple of the higher capacity cards but I would expect it would use the same cards as the D3200.

I ended up getting a Lexar Premium(in U.S. it's Platinum II) 32GB Class 10 200x 30MB/s High Speed SDHC Memory Card. That should be more than sufficient for our trip next month.

Hi Philip,

Welcome to Nikonians!

I would recommend getting at least one extra memory card to add to your kit. especially if you shoot Raw or plan on shootinng video.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

I actually bought two Lexar Premium cards. Had a SanDisk Ultra SDHC 16 GB from my last camera. Well prepared now. Thanks for your help.

According to Nikon, the largest card the D5100 supports is the 64GB Sandisk Extreme. I've verified that this card works on my D5100. I'm not sure about other 64GB cards. Most people seem to stick to getting a few smaller cards to limit losses from cards getting lost or damaged.


D5100
AF-S 18-300mm 3.5-5.6
AF-S 10-24mm 3.5-4.5
AF-S 50mm 1.8
SB-700

Thanks for taking the time to supply the info. I agree with you about smaller cards. 32Go is enough for me.

I'll try the Amazon Basic, but for everyday photos at first. Thanks. Have a great day.

Bought a SDXC 64GB card for my D3100 last month for $14 free shipping. Took 3 weeks to receive it in the mail but was worth it. Great card:
