    Big Problems the Factory needs to look into

    Posted
    OldTango60

    I have had this camera Nikon D5100 for 3 weeks now, I love it but there has been a issue that has driven me crazy. Little background about the issue. Bought the camera and SanDisk 16 Gig, #10 speed memory card and thought I would learn how to use it during a swim meet before we went on vacation. Camera and card give me fits, showed error message “No Storage Card Installed” when I reality the card was installed and formatted. Next weekend I took the camera and memory card back to Best Buy and they were great and exchanged both for another new complete system. Well got home and tried it out and same thing, “No Storage Card Installed”. Removal and re-install the card clears the error most of the time. I called Nikon customer support I thought I was doing something wrong, and they didn’t know what to say beside take get another exchange. Well I couldn’t get it done prior to leaving on vacation. Dropped my old PNY memory card in the bag. Well on vacation had a terrible time getting it to work using the SanDisk. Got back to hotel and changed the card to a PNY 2 gig #4 speed about 5 years old. The camera work flawlessly until the card was full, then back to the trouble with SanDisk for the last day. Got home took the card back to Best Buy and they didn’t have a PNY 16 gig card in stock, so exchanged for another SanDisk and bought a 8 gig #10 speed PNY also at the time. SanDisk did the same thing as the first 2 SanDisk card, PNY worked flawlessly. I set down and actually played with the SanDisk card and camera. It fails when the camera goes into sleep mode when you wake it up by touching the shutter button it shows 1.6K photos, but when it focuses and beeps it won’t do anything and shows the error “No Storage Card Installed”. Remove and re-install the card clears the error most of the time. Let the error time out, about 2 min and it may work the next time you use it without removing the card, maybe not. So in short when you purchase this camera gat a PNY card, not a SanDisk. There is a compatibility issue with the SanDisk, it will drive you crazy otherwise.

    Not compatible with Nikon DSLR

    Normally I love SanDisk memory cards...a good value and reliable. This is NOT one of them. I have a Nikon D5100 and after reading the description of the 16GB Extreme card thought it would be perfect. Well, after 2 cards and 3 trips to Best Buy it was determined that this particular memory card is NOT compatible with a Nikon D5100 or D3100. I don't know what else it isn't compatible with because we didn't test it. This is not Best Buy's fault and they did a good job accommodating my need to find a high speed memory card that works. Best Buy was as surprised as I was to find it incompatible because SandDisk recommends the Extreme card specifically for DSLR and HD video cameras. If you are in the market for a memory card in this speed class go with a different brand until SandDisk has a different product. I now have 2 PNY 16GB Professionals and they work as good as I think this card would have. I use my camera primarily for photos and short video and have not noticed any excessive buffering with the PNY.

    Once I made the switch to the Scan Disk Extreme I will never go with anything else. The speed of shooting in frames per second is the best I can get for my camera. I was informed by the camera sales employee that if I wanted to gain the maximum frames per second with the camera I bought(Canon 60D) that I should use an extreme SD card. Glad I listened. It is obviously more expensive than regular cards, but well worth it. He also informed me that when I transfer pictures to my Macbook Pro it will be much faster, and he was right. Comparing the time it took to transfer with my old camera and SD card set up and my new setup it is fractions of seconds. I can literally transfer 200 shots in under 5 sec. Now for high resolution shooting, my wife does a lot of commercial shoots with the camera for her company. She is very happy with the quality she can get when utilizing the card at its highest resolution. She has processed photos into 20x30 posters with excellent clarity. No grainy resolution at that large an image. Overall, after shooting with this SD card I will never change. I would recommend buying these cards whenever you find them on sale at Best Buy. This last Black Friday Best Buy had them on sale for over half off. That was awesome, so I bought two for the price of one.

    I ordered 16GB and 8GB of the "HD VIDEO" cards online and picked up at the store. I put the 16 GB card in my D5100 camera but "No SD Card Inserted" message was displayed in the camera. Tried a few times taking out and inserted again. Didn't work. Same message. Took the cards back to the store and exchanged for another 16GB. The salesperson tried the new card. The camera showed the same message at the beginning but started working fine. Came home and deleted the photos. Took some more test pictures. THEN without doing anything else (other than changing Auto to Manual mode) it stopped working. Same message "No SD Card Inserted". Since I don't trust these cards any more, I took back to the store and asked if they would exchange for same capacity but NON-"HD VIDEO" cards. The customer service person refused - although the card without HD VIDEO label is priced at the store much lower than the card with HD VIDEO label on it. So much for customer service and my THREE trips to the Best Buy store. My suggestion: Don't buy these cards! May stop working unexpectedly.

    Cheap Card, Slow Write

    Cameras are getting better and better, but companies keep pushing low write speed cards for them. This does NOT work well for events where EVERY shot counts. If you've ever experienced a shutter freeze you know what I mean. My word of advice is to ALWAYS pay attention to the write speed of the cards you buy. That 90mb is not doing it for me when it comes to Panoramas and events. Constantly I see stores take advantage of the less knowledgable and have 32gb and 64gb capacity cards on sale as great deals, however they have a 20mb write speed. Get educated on your memory cards before you buy. It's not always a deal. Newer cards also show a video symbol (camcorder with a number like 60mb) to let you know it can handle HD recording. This is also important. Be aware.

    I purchased this today because the PNY class 10 (20mb/s) card just quit working on me yesterday after about a month of use. I have a Canon t3i that I use for a good mixture of still shots and video so I need something that can handle both. After putting this card though a rigorous test of both today, I was not only pleased with how it handled everything but how quickly the camera performed between buffering. No issues with video buffering either. After trying out the 20mb/s card, and this at 30mb/s, its a no brainer. Put down some more money and get this card. I will update this review if I have any issues at all.

    Two different cards have this same model number

    In Same bestbuy store they had two cards from Sandisk with SAME exactly SKU/Model number and barcode number. One is a class 6 one is the class 10 listed here. Both ring up at same price and as same product in their inventory system. If you google the model number online most sites show up as a Class 6 card and not the "extreme" model but other sites list the class 10 extreme model. So make sure if you purchase this card that they give you the class 10 as SanDisk has two products with the same SKU/Model#.

    ANYONE WHO SAYS YOUR NOT GETTING WHAT YOU PAID FOR DOESN'T HAVE A CLUE TO WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT. I BOUGHT A 8GB CARD TO TEST THE QUALITY OF THE CARD. I PUT MY CANON T3I ON CONTINUOUS SHOOTING MODE, HIGHEST QUALITY AND IT SHOT 70+ PICTURES BEFORE IT SLOWED DOWN. IT CONTINUED TO TAKE PICTURE, BUT AT A SLOWER PACE TILL I STOPPED AT AROUND 105 PICTURES. I WAS SO IMPRESSED THAT I WENT RIGHT BACK TO BESTBUY AND BOUGHT A 16GB CARD. I ALSO DID SEVERAL HD VIDEOS AND NEVER HAD ONE PROBLEM. THE CARDS A BIT PRICEY, BUT WORTH EVERY PENNY.

    Good SD card - but get it price-matched

    For years I wasn't knowledgeable about SD cards and how companies lie about read and write speeds. I honestly thought my Canon 60d was broken. Turns out after doing light research on the internet you'll find out that companies LIE about read/write speeds when they market their cards. If you don't read the fine print then you'll be conned into buying a card that may WRITE at 30mb/ps but READS at 10mb/ps. After buying this card I haven't had ANY issues. Best Buy has it listed for more than it's actually worth though. Just do a simple search on amazon and get it price matched at your local best buy. Truth be told after buying this I went back and bought a 32gb of the same card. LOVE them both.

    Upgraded from a 4GB card

    I bought this card to take pictures on vacation and give me more space to store pics & video. I have a point & shoot camera and had an old 4GB memory card. The larger capacity was nice, and the read/write speeds were faster than my older card. I didn't do a comparison, so I can't say for sure that the write speed was drastically better, but I didn't notice any lag when taking pictures. I took hundreds of pictures with plenty of room for more. The capacity was great. I'm happy with it, but didn't really do any research or comparison to notice any dramatic difference in performance. I gave it 5 stars because I have no complaints about the product. It performs well.

    Excellent Memory Card for DSLR Cameras

    This memory card is great for DSLR cameras. I was previously using a slower memory card for my DSLR camera, and I noticed that reviewing my photos on the camera's LCD screen right after I took photos was very sluggish. I also noticed that my camera would record only around 30 seconds of HD video before automatically stopping. I came to the conclusion that my memory card was too slow and ended up getting this card. Wow, what a difference! Now there is absolutely no sluggishness when reviewing my photos, and I can shoot HD video without the camera automatically stopping the recording.

    I purchased this memory card for one specific purpose: to create a backup of my Chrome OS on the Asus Chromebox I recently purchased. I had a number of cards and flash drives sitting around that I thought I could use for that purpose, but each one of them failed before the backup completed. I was starting to think there was something wrong with my Chromebox, when someone suggested purchasing a new good card from a reliable manufacturer like SanDisk. Research on this card indicated many satisfied users, so I bought it. The backup worked flawlessly on the first try, and so I am completely satisfied with the product.

    Great memory card for my Dslr.

    I purchase this card in the store after reading reviews online stating confusion on Bestbuy's part with the Extreme version vs. Ultra version of sdhc cards offered by Sandisk. The card has performed better then expected even when writing large files in Raw and JPEG to the card using my A55 camera taking an unnoticed amount of time leaving me to only worry about picture taking. The lifetime warranty is a major selling point for this card as well as the fact its waterproof. Very pleased with this memory card.

    SD for Video

    We shoot a lot of video from Camcorders and DSLRs and a good dependable SDHC is a vital part of our equipment. We use the Extreme mainly for video that's produced for clients that will be hosting from Youtube or vimeo and or used for their webpage and through social media outlets. The Ultra is a great card for photography, but the speed of the Extreme and Extreme Pro have yet to disappoint. The speed is great when dumping footage, (large files). This is the best card to use if you are having a problem with more entry level DSLRs cutting off (stop recording) automatically while shooting 60fps.

    Nikon D5100 and SanDisk - "NO SD CARD INSERTED"

    The Nikon D5100 and the SanDisk Extreme get an error message - "NO SD CARD INSERTED"... I have been running into the "NO SD Card Inserted" issue even after replacing the Nikon D5100 and then the memory. Obviously, Best Buy is not aware about this issue. After researching this issue, I have found that Nikon has a firmware upgrade, see the Nikon link for more information: http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/17547. The camera has been working fine since the firmware upgrade.

    Works great in my Canon 7D Mark II

    The 7D Mark II can shoot 10 frames per second. It can save images to 2 cards at the same time so I got this SD for the jpegs along with a faster CF for the camera to save the raw files to. Absolutely no problems shooting to this SD card, it keeps up great. Also it will hold a ton of jpegs so you can keep them on the card for quite a while after each incremental offload to your computer. Kind of like a poor man's back up. All-in-all it's a super-fast fantastic SD card. I almost always buy Sandisk and they have never failed me.

    Good card at an excellent price

    I purchased this additional memory card for my Nikon D7000 DSLR camera. The D7000 Best Buy bundle came with an 8GB card which was not enough memory for shooting large format photos, so I purchased this 16GB card. (The D7000 has dual memory slots, so I now use the 8GB card as an overflow memory card.) The card has worked great so far--but, as I intend to start using the HD video feature on my camera more often, I'll probably want even more storage space. So, next on my wish list is the 32GB card. But, all in all, I'm very satisfied with this card's performance.

    I recently bought a new Canon SX170 IS and I decided to use my older 8GB SDHC card with it; however, I noticed that the write speed was slow and there was a noticeable lag when reviewing pictures. I decided to buy this card in order to get more storage and more speed. With this card I can now take over 2,200 pictures at full resolution. What's more, the lag time has all but disappeared! Shot-to-shot time is markedly improved, and playback has almost no lag time. Sale price of $24.99 is a good price for this level of performance. Highly satisfied!

    Product is dyno supreme. Awesome. BUT... This is a U1 rated card. the speed is generally the same as a U3, but the difference is that the minimum speed is only 10 for this one and 30 for the U3 when using a UHS-1 compliant device. If you use this for video or multi-shot fast action, get a U3. This is not what it is described to be and they are supposed to be fixing it. In general you may never know the difference unless you are doing the afore mentioned high demand video. Just a warning that you are not getting what you are paying for.

    Very good choice for GoPro Camera

    I bought this card on Black Friday for use in my GoPro camera for the Class 10 read/write speed. It works great for 120FPS footage that you need to slow down during editing. I was using a Class 6 card and the video would get extremely choppy if you were recording anything fast paced. I expect that this card would work very well in any DSLR camera especially in burst mode (10 shot burst mode shots come out great) or in a camcorder recording 1080p or sports. Would recommend, try to pick it up on sale.
