Found 4th Jan
Just been looking around for the cheapest U3 speed 64gb MicroSD card I could find to use in my new action cam. This seems to be the best I could find.

Free delivery and 2% Quidco too.

Not a bad card, but my previous experience with Samsung micro sdcards makes me wary. Specifically, unmounting itself from multiple devices and speed far lower than quoted. YMMV.

Would this be any good in a hd dashcam? (Nextbase 512gw)
Any good for Gopro Hero5 ?

It says ideal for 4k videos etc...

Yes, yes & it is :-)

Got these in a Yi 4k Plus [thanks mrsmith for hukd post!] & mobile and they work tiptop.

Read is about 60-90 & Write is about 60-70 and cards have not failed once on format, re-format or writing to.

Also works faultlessly in dji's drones #4k# and android tablet for OTG#Editing.

Just ensure card is genuine Samsung prior to use and not a guppy clone from China
Think these are in my Tescos for £18 ATM, and 32gb are about £11... Will check later if I remember...
I might be mistaking it for the usb stick version instead..
suitable for 4k videos. Not suitable for dashcams or anything that constantly rewrites
gearbest have 64gb UHS-3 for about £17

Ummm, why not? Why do you think writing 4k as a constant stream would be any different to writing 1080p dashcam video? Dashcams don't re-write, they simply loop round when the card is full. If this is OK for 4k video it'll definitley be OK for dashcams

Read carcamcentral.com/gui…rds

Note that Samsung void warranty for memory cards used in dashcams.

When the card capacity is reached the dashcam writes over the earliest footage. That is re-writing.

You write in ignorance. It is not as you say. If you don't know something don't use terms like "definitely".

My nextbase 412gw can take 128gb card. So i presume the newer 512 should too.

If you are going to pretend to be intelligent at least get your facts right and be specific. Firstly what happens in the oldest file is removed from the File Allocation Table, and the new data is written to the newly created space, nothing is 're-written', it is overwritten.
Secondly, let me make this really easy, assuming a 60 second youtube video, a 4k file would be 84.4mb and a 1080p file would be 60mb, therefore if the card can write 84.4mb in 60s it can obviously write 60mb. And if you still can't understand, then any idiot knows if you have 4x the number of pixels, the filesize will obviously be bigger.

Bottom line, if this is good enough for 4k, it's good enough for a dashcam at 1080p.

If you cant be bothered to read the link I provided then its not surprising you post this rubbish.

It is nothing to do with file size or the speed it is written to the card, it is to do with the type of memory used and the number of times you can write to the particular type of flash memory. Samsung themselves do not advise to use these cards for dashcams as it seriously reduces the reliability of the card. Read the article then decide. I provide good advice in response to a query. You do not.

I don't pretend to be clever, just informed when I answer a question. It is easy to be informed. I use google.

Assuming TLC nand P/E Cycles of 1000, and if you fill the card to capacity every single day (1 P/E write on every single cell every day - very unlikely), then this card will last ~3years, it'll be worthless in 3 years. There's no need to pay 3x the price for an MLC card, save you money and replace the card after 3 years with a higher capacity one.

Anyone can google, not everyone can understand.

Your assumptions are wrong - the write cycles for these type of cards are closer to 400 or 500. Its all in the article.

And as the cards are not made for this purpose they will be unreliable before then. The warranty will be void. Just read the article and get one of the cards recommended.

The card is fine for general use, just not suitable for dashcam use.

I've noticed my quality being very grainy using this card recoding on my Yi in 4k 30 fps, could it be this isn't fast enough write speed or is it settings maybe?

Interesting, glad I read this.

Have this card in my phone and DJI Mavic.
At same time also purchased 2 which were put in 1440P IP cams as a backup to my NVR.

The 2 cards in the cams stopped writing after 4 and 6 months and was unable to format.

Still working great in phone and mavic.

That might explain it.

Thanks
I was right, £18 in Tescos, both this card and the usb3 sticks, 64gb for £18 each.

If you're shooting outside at iso 100-400 you'll find the quality of this cam is pretty damn awesome. Inside, in low light/high iso conditions these (and any other action cams) are pretty rubbish. The iso is what determines the cameras sensitivity to light. The lower the number the less sensitive it becomes and the better the picture quality. The higher you push the iso setting, the more sensitive it becomes to light but at a trade off for picture quality and grain. Shutter speed and aperture won't directly affect the quality of the picture you're capturing but the iso setting will. Certainly don't push it above 800 (ideally keep it below 400) and you'll be happy with the quality.
Is this gonna work with 3DS? Anyone try put 64GB instead of 32GB which is officially supported by Nintendo?
Ordered mine today.
Would these cards be suitable with an IP camera like the Yi Home Camera? I would have thought those work similar to a dashcam with over-writing once it gets full.
