    Big Problems the Factory needs to look into

    Posted

    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.

    Nothing for trouble

    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.

    Very Good, Very Fast

    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.
