SD Card Recommendations

microSD Card Classes

  • microSD cards have capacity up to 2GB.
  • microSDHC (High Capacity) cards offer capacity up to 32GB.
  • microSDXC (eXtended Capacity) cards have capacity from over 32GB and up to 2TB, currently.
  • Each type of card has a speed rating of 2, 4, 6, 8, or 10, from slowest to fastest. 

While you can use any class of microSD card in your device, the microSDXC card is recommended for high-resolution video recording due to its large storage capacity and high-speed read/write capability.

For less demanding use, such as still photography, regular microSD or microSDHC cards will be sufficient.
