Does your camera need a fast SD card?

A look at just whether your phone/tablet or camera NEEDS a particularly fast speed of SD card, despite common belief. The short answer is – generally no. It certainly won’t hurt, but you might be better served getting a larger card rather than a faster card. Graphs included.

“It’s a similar story when it comes to apps. A fast microSD card will make games and utilities load more quickly, but in many cases the difference won’t be noticeable. Of the top ten Android apps in the Google Play store at the time of writing, the largest was Disney’s Where’s My Water, weighing in at 48MB (most are much smaller). Even the slowest SD card in our tests would be able to load this entire game into memory in around three seconds. Unless apps grow considerably in size in the near future, there isn’t much need for superfast media.”
