The best memory cards

What is a memory card ?

The memory card is a removable digital data storage unit which replaced the film of old cameras, on digital cameras.

The operating principle has been put in place after an agreement between the three giants :

- Panasonic, 
- Toshiba,
- SanDisk.

Cards exist in three formats :

- The SD,
- The miniSD (practically not used),
- The microSD.

These formats exist in three standards

- SD cards (Secure Digital),
- SDHC cards (Secure Digital High Capacity),
- SDXC cards (Secure Digital Extended Capacity).

Cards SD have capacity between 128Mo à 2Go. Its default format is FAT16 and works with all SD, SDHC, ou SDXC compatible devices.
The SDHC card has a capacity ranging from 4GB to 32GB, Its default format is FAT32 and works differently than standard cards. 
The SDXC card has a capacity ranging from 64GB to 2TB. Its default format is exFAT.

The UHS-I specificity defines two bus architecture options of up to 50MB / s (UHS-50) and 104MB / s (UHS-104) data transfer rate.

UHS-II specificity defines bus architecture for 156MB/s and 312MB/s options. 
Write / read speed and class of SD cards

Write and read speeds are important for users of high-end devices.

The class is displayed surrounded by a C or placed in an U.

There are four speed classes and two U :



defining the minimum write rate.

Class 2 (resp. 4, 6 10, U1, and U2) is equivalent to 2 Mo/s (resp. 4, 6, 10, 10 et 30).

Some manufacturers use the MB/s as a unit while others opt for the X which is worth 150 KB/s, so 600X is the same as 90 MB/s.
