Patriot LX Series SDXC 64GB Flash Memory ReviewPosted on 2011-12-08 12:57:27 by Thomas De Maesschalck
There are some hobbies you should never get into. Ever since I got my first digital camera in Grade 6 that cost me a life savings to buy, I was hooked on photography ever since. (That was back when film cameras were still the standard, and if you owned a 1.3 megapixel digital camera, that was quite the baller thing to have.) Many years have passed, and many more life savings later, it is interesting to see how far we have come. I am not talking about me having a flash that costs more than several compact point-and-zooms combined, and lenses that are worth more than my friends' cars, but simply the performance and amazing amount of features found on modern dSLRs. If you told someone ten years ago that a digital camera can produce photo-quality prints at over 18" x 12", and make better videos than a high end consumer camcorder, you probably would have been laughed at for more than a few minutes. Nowadays, it is just how things are. Unfortunately, with all the big megapixels and 1080p videos -- not saying sensor resolution and image quality are directly related or anything -- your once massive 8GB SDHC card from 2008 is no longer as massive as you have once thought. That's not to mention shooting in 1080p will require not only a big card, but also a fast card. So if 8GB is no longer considered uber, and anything less than Class 6 won't do the job, what should aspiring videographers and RAW shooters look into? Try a 64GB -- yes, sixty four gigabytes -- SDXC Class 10 card from Patriot Memory.
