SD Cards and readers!

Not the most interesting topic but definitely an important one! We carry multiple SD cards and we learned a lot from trial and error. First things first never purchase an SD card larger then 128GB due to failure or losing a drone or camera. We have lost a ton of footage by having a large SD card and it sucked, almost two weeks of footage gone. We stick with what we know SanDisk has been on point with the SD cards , this is not a post for everyone but hey if you wanna learn more read a long.



For the Osmo Pocket and Mavic Air we use the SanDisk Extreme Plus U3 A2, it seems to be fast enough to record all of our 4k videos and has not given us any issues.


For our Sony RX100m3 we use the Extreme Pro first than fill up the Ultra Plus. We don't really notice a difference but than again we aren't filming video on our Sony it's mostly for photos.(though that is changing)


The Samsung SD card came with the DJI Osmo Pocket expansion kit. It's a good SD card but it's a spare for now, we also have two micro ids Ultra Plus U1 from Sandisk and it's a last resort for our drone or Osmo Pocket.

Now onto the readers. We work on Apple devices strictly. We have an iMac and a MacBook Pro both running Lightroom and FCPX. For that we use the Cable Matters USB-C adapter since both computers use USB-C, this adapter has a micro SD slot and standard SD slot so you don't have to fiddle with adapters. For the iPhone we use the lightning to Sd card adapter, it only accepts regular SD cards so we use the Samsung reader which has been great.


We will link below the links to all of our SD cards we use.
