Ex­pert tip Choose the per­fect mem­ory card for the best re­sults

Practical Photography (UK) - - Outdoor Adventure -

There re­ally is noth­ing worse than lin­ing up the per­fect shot, go­ing to press the shut­ter but­ton and then re­al­is­ing that your buf­fer is full. That ini­tial stab of frus­tra­tion will only in­ten­sify with each sec­ond that goes by when you can’t take a photo. While it’s not ex­actly the most thrilling piece of kit, your mem­ory card is vi­tally im­por­tant. You want your card to be both fast and ro­bust. As we’re rec­om­mend­ing you shoot in RAW, you won’t want any­thing smaller than 16GB, as oth­er­wise the card will fill up too quickly and you’ll have to swap it out. To avoid long waits for the buf­fer to clear, you’ll also want a fast write speed. We rec­om­mend the SanDisk Ex­treme range, as this has a write speed of up to 40MB/s. These cards are also wa­ter­proof and tem­per­a­ture­proof, so you don’t need to worry about any un­for­tu­nate ac­ci­dents.

Above The ma­jor­ity of SanDisk cards are guar­an­teed to be shock, tem­per­a­ture, X-ray, mag­net and water-proof.
