Micro SD Cards is usually referred to as TF or SDTV cards, there’s no major difference in functionality, they’re all the same tiny little card. The most basic specification of these tiny little cards is that they can only hold digital pictures and can store up to 200 songs (yes songs). Now this is a great thing as music is one of my favourite things to collect. The other cool factor about these cards is that they can also be used to capture videos, this means that you can capture your holiday memories on an unsuspecting friends mobile phone!
Which is the Best Micro SD Card to Go For?
Now here’s where the differences start to become obvious, the larger the memory cell allocated to your micro SD cards the more storage you’ll get per card. This of course will also affect the cost, which as I’m sure you can imagine is a big factor for most people when making their purchases. So here are my recommendations for what size of micro SD card to get, the higher the size the more you’ll be able to store on it, but at the same time it will also be cheaper to buy.
My recommendation would be to go for the lowest size that you can afford, this way you get to keep your budget down and you won’t have to worry about throwing away the card after a few uses, the highest memory size available for micro SD cards is 16GBit which is far too much for most people to be buying on a regular basis so keep it low and don’t overdo it. As for which is the best micro SD card to go for, in my opinion the best is the one manufactured by Samsung, their micro SD card is perfect for shooting photographs and videos and comes with a whole host of features. If you want to transfer videos to your smartphone, then the SGH-I8B20 is recommended, this card has an HDMI port allowing it to be connected to your smartphone through the USB cable so you can transfer your videos directly from your camera to your smartphone without having to connect the camera to the computer first. The SGH-I8B20 also contains auto-stabilization technology meaning if you’re using the card to shoot the video it will have no effect on the pictures taken thus improving quality. The SGH-I8B20 also has an anti-shake feature so you won’t have to be disturbed when the shot is not quite straight and has some shake, which can make a difference when taking some images.
