Which card you need for your recordings depends mainly on the reading and writing speed of the memory card. Storage size is not always a good guide. Look at your device to determine which card to buy.
If you have a device from after 2008, you can assume that you need an SDHC (or SDXC) card. An SDHC (SD High Capacity) card does not work in devices that are older than that. This subtype SD card has a capacity of between 4 and 32GB and is usually used in compact cameras and cameras that film in Full HD quality. But before you buy a memory card, always check which type of SD card is recommended.
SDXC stands for Secure Digital eXtented Capacity and has the largest capacity of the 3 subtypes. An SDXC card has a storage space of between 64 GB and 2 TB. This type of memory card has the largest possible capacity of all SD cards. Not every device supports an SDXC card. So carefully look at your device before you purchase one. This memory card is most commonly seen in cameras with which you can photograph in RAW format and film in 4K.
