"HD Video SD cards vs Standar SD Cards"


Novi, US
          

I went to buy some 16GB Sandisk Extreme SDHC cards for my D7000. I meant to purchase the standard Extreme cards, but bought the HD Video cards by mistake. Any problem with that for still pictures? Does anyone know the difference between the cards that are HD Video and those that are not HD Video? (I take only stills, no video).

I've looked on the SanDisk website and can't really find much.

Mike

You may notice the buffer clears a bit faster, but that's about it.

I made the same mistake with an 8GB card. I was a bit worried when I read the long saga about counterfeit cards and couldn't get confirmation from the SanDisk site either. I don't shoot video much.

Card works a treat!! I have only filled it once but SO much faster than my class 6. I did Dean's buffer empty test and got 10 seconds which I thought was fine.

Dawn.

There really is no difference between "standard" and "video". They all do the same. In all honesty, all they did was rebadge. Kind of like a gimmick. Hardware wise, its all the same. All they did was change the sticker. Its all about marketing or perception.

Companies slap a "HD Video" sticker on a memory card so people will think its "only" for video or think its better if used for video. Not true.

Same goes for Class such as Class 4, 6 and 10. Although it may be a Class 10, its actually a Class 6. Theres more information about this on the web and how companies place their items in categories.
