Memory card bestseller list

at Amazon, note the further information when purchasing:

Speed:

Each memory card tells how fast it is transferring data. The number in the broken circle is the SDHC tempo class (1 – 10). It gives the transfer rate in megabytes per second [MB/s] that the card can reach at least. With a 10 it is at least 10 MB / s. Class 10 is sufficient if you want to save video recordings up to full HD resolution on the card.

The number in the U-shaped symbol indicates the “Ultra High Speed” (UHS) class of the card. If you want to record 4K video on the memory card, you need a UHS class “3” model. The addition “V30”, “V60” or “V90” indicates whether the card can write data at up to 30, 60 or 90 MB / s. If you want to save video recordings in 8K, you need at least a “V60” card.

The SD format (32 x 24 x 2.1 mm) is found in many notebooks and digital cameras, the much more compact Micro SD format (11 x 15 x 1 mm) in mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
