This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Now that gigabit broadband and 4K streaming are mainstream, it's time for multimedia professionals to push the envelope with the newest in data-heavy video. 8K programming is still a long way off, but that doesn't mean you can't already capture a 33-megapixel image at 30 or 60 frames per second. The right SD card will ensure that your high-end camera can keep up, in all of its 10-bit-color glory.

Editor's Notes

January 09, 2019:

It's not too difficult to find appropriate storage for still photos, even with high-speed burst modes, and 4K recording is also easier to accommodate than ever. When you approach 8K, however, you'll need to pay attention to not just the manufacturer's claims, but also the card's abilities, as tested in the real world. As far as hands-on testing goes, the ProGrade Digital V90 and Toshiba Exceria stand above the rest, with the Lexar 2000X a close third. Speaking of Lexar, their microSD variety blows away much of its tiny brethren, and unlike them, writes at over 100MBps. The SanDisk is one of the most popular lines ever, though it is a bit more expensive than others of similar capacity, and the same can be said for the Sony SF-G. If you've spent all your cash on the camera itself, consider the lower-end ProGrade Digital, which should just barely handle 8K streams, but is half the price of most other options.
