If you have a new tactacam v5.0 camera and want some extra storage space on your device then buying an SD card may be something that interests you. This can help with transferring files from PC or Mac to your mobile phone as well as increasing the amount of pictures you take per day.
However if you’re not sure which one to choose then in this article I’m going to explain everything you need to know – What is an SD Card? Why are there different types of SD Cards? Are there any other factors to consider when buying an SDCard? Let me start by explaining exactly how they work.
What is an SD Card?
SD stands for Secure Digital Memory Stick. These days most cameras come with built-in flash memory but it isn’t always big enough to store all the images taken during a holiday (even though it might look like plenty). To solve this problem manufacturers created SD cards which allow users to expand their internal memory through removable media. The size of these cards varies greatly depending upon manufacturer and model however common sizes include 16GB, 32GB, 64 GB and 128GB.
There are also two additional formats often used for even more extreme photography enthusiasts such as CompactFlash Type 1 & 2, Micro Flash etc…
Why are there different types of SD Cards?
As mentioned above, SD memory sticks vary widely in terms of storage capacity. This means they aren’t suitable for every purpose. They were originally designed as small portable devices that could hold around 4MB worth of data but now many people use them as external hard drives due to their large storage capacities.
Another reason why certain SD cards exist is because they support specific features within the camera. Some models offer Wi-Fi connections so you can connect directly to your computer via USB while others have special functions such as “Secure Storage” technology, GPS tracking systems and even remote control capabilities.
Most newer models have dual voltage compatibility meaning they operate at either 3.3 volts or 5 volts and therefore require adapters/converters before being inserted into standard computers. It should be noted that if you purchase a high end SD card than don’t expect to insert it straight into your laptop without first purchasing an adapter!
What Is The Best SD Card For TacticaCam V5.0?
Choosing the right type of SD card for your needs requires careful consideration based on several variables including price, functionality, storage capacity, durability and brand reputation. In order to make things easier I’ve divided my recommendations up according to each category below:
Best Overall Value: Kingston microSDHC Class 10 UHS-1 80+16GB Video HD Camcorder Memory Card(s)
These particular memory cards are manufactured by the world famous company known for its reliable products and great prices. As soon as I saw this product I was really impressed by its impressive range of features. Not only does it boast a massive 160 gigabytes of storage capacity but it also comes equipped with a ‘Video Motion Jpeg Engine’ which allows photos to be recorded in 1080p High Definition video format! However, despite having such amazing specs, the price remains relatively low compared to similar brands.
160 Gigabytes Of Storage Capacity
1080P HD Videos Can Be Recorded
High Speed Read And Write Capabilities
No Longer Available Due To Stock Issues
Pricey Compared To Similar Brands
Cheapest Choice If You Only Want A Basic Functionality
Best Budget Friendly Option: SanDisk Ultra Plus 64Gb Class10 UHS-3 8MP Black Touchscreen Camera With Built-In Bluetooth
I think everyone knows who SanDisk is and if you do too then you’ll certainly recognize this entry. Although it doesn’t come packed with as much awesome as the previous option, it still has quite a few useful features and offers better value for money than many of its competitors.
8 Megapixel Photos And Full Resolution 1920×1080 videos
Built-In Bluetooth Technology
Great Battery Life
Quick Response Time
Only Has 512 MB Of Internal Memory Per Chassis
Not Quite Enough Storage Space On Its Own
Average Quality Images
Verdict: After comparing both options I would recommend taking out the second memory card slot and putting it towards the back of your tacti cam unit where it will easily accessible. Also keep in mind that if you plan to buy multiple cards for backup purposes then you won’t get full performance until you install software updates available online.
Are There Any Other Factors to Consider When Buying An SDCard?
Yes, just one more thing. While choosing between higher priced items and cheaper ones, you must remember that quality tends to be sacrificed along with lower prices. Take a closer look at the components involved in making the card and ensure that they meet all necessary requirements. One final note, please avoid using cheap knock off versions of popular brands. Most companies wouldn’t dream of offering substandard products to consumers and neither should you.
