You Will Need
- Storage space
Check the compatibility of older digital cameras or camcorders to the newer SDHC that have become the standard over the old SD cards.
Determine how much storage space you need. If you are buying an SD card for a still camera, a 4 GB card is sufficient. For video, 8 or 16 GB is needed.
Pick a speed
Assess your need for speed. Stated speed is how fast still images are written to a card, whereas Class ratings are how fast video is written. Check the specifications of your product.
Choose the right features
Choose the extras that are right for you. For example, SD+ cards have a built in USB connect so that when flipped down they can double as a thumb drive.
