There are a lot of different types of memory cards to choose from, and this video helps you in choosing the right SD card for video. The video tells the differences among SD, Micro SD, Compact Flash, and CFast cards, but the main focus is on understanding what all the symbols and numbers on SD cards mean. The difference between bit vs byte or Megabit vs Megabyte (Mb vs MB) is that there are 8 bits in one byte. Also covered is the difference in the various speed class ratings such as UHS1 vs Class 10, UHS1 vs UHS3, and UHS – I vs UHS – II bus speeds as well as the new V class ratings for cards. All this information will help you decide what is the best SD card for DSLR video whether you are shooting HD video, 4K video, 8K video, 3D video, or 360 video. I hope the video is helpful.
