> I like the low visual profile from inside the car, and the adhesive instead of suction mount. Also, with built in screen, I can show others halfway decent video without having to mess with other hardware.

Not really, the screen is too small, and most users don't understand how to play video from it anyways.

Most would have a Micro SD card reader to Micro USB (for cell phones) and copy the video files, then play on their cellphone, as it is a larger screen and easier to use.

> Another is if I have to give up a card as evidence for some reason (Lawyer, Police, Insurance, etc).

You never give a Micro SD card to the police, they likely wouldn't know what to do with it. Same for insurance, or lawyer. They could lose it, break it, damage it, make it unreadable, "accidentally" format it. It is always in your best interest to keep the original and send them a copy via youtube, or dropbox, or some other email service or video linking site.

Also send the part of the evidence you want to send to those people. You can remove audio, or show only the clip in your best interest, sometimes remove GPS/Speed indicator. It is your evidence, you shouldn't even mention that you have a dash cam until you are ready to show evidence in your favor.

> TRANSCEND INFORMATION 32GB High Endurance Microsd Card ~$30 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01BDKTQY6/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

Many shy away from Sandisk products because Sandisk Ultra is a common fault with most dash cams. Not made for dash cam use, controller can no handle constant write cycles of a dash cam. Also Sandisk Ultra seems very heavily recommended on Amazon for some reason, not really sure the reason.

Transcend High Endurance is highly recommended, however 32 GB will have less storage than one would suppose. The A119 v2 video quality and resolution comes at a cost of space.

> Circular Polarizing Lens for VIOFO A118C2 / A119 /A119S Dash Camera ~$13.00
This reduces glare, at the expense of letting somewhat less light in at night (such is the nature of a polarizing lens).

So this is a nice addition, but I would really hold off on purchasing it until you actually want to see a difference. A119 v2 is fine w/o it.

> Mini USB Dash Cam 10 Foot Hardwire and Fuse Kit for A119 A119S G1W G1WS ~$13.00

> So I can hardwire it to the fusebox to let it record in parking mode. This also lets me have on hand the cable that came with the camera to be able to show other people footage without having them sit in my car, or having to undo my cable routing. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N0GR4ON/ref=ox_sc_act_title_6?smid=A8IQBBGLCSUJ7&psc=1

Minor and very livable annoyances of this hardwire kit: 1) Vulnerable to cold, in cold weather it will struggle to supply the dash cam with enough energy. - Once car warms up it is fine. 2) Short cable lengths - that little box (the low voltage cut off) will most likely end up on your dash board. - Does not bother most people. 3) 2nd 5amp fuse for Tap a fuse not included. Purchase seperately from any auto store, $1-5 USD.

> Total: $187.16

> A little more than I thought I would be spending at the beginning of this venture, but still an acceptable amount for what quite possibly (but hopefully not) could easily pay for itself in the future.

I would consider purchasing the Thinkware F50 ($90-110 USD) or BlackVue DR450-1CH ($119.99 USD).

Cost = Dash cam + Micro SD card + Hardwire kit

The Thinkware F50 from Blackboxmycar has a lot of options and comes with everything included to set it up. - If you can live with the video quality of the Thinkware F50 of course. - Excellent Park mode, Excellent build quality, fair video quality 1080p.

The BlackVue DR450-1CH is a little more pricey but still has good options. - Excellent Park mode, Excellent build quality, good video quality 1080P.

The A119 v2 - Lackluster parking mode, good/fair/poor build quality, Excellent video quality 1440p. - This is the standard 1st time dash cam purchasers dash cam. Built for Video quality, and price, there is a reason why it is A119 v2, v1 had failure to record events - caused by GPS mount/Dashcam connection pins, either bending, or sheering, or failing to supply the dash cam with enough power. Common work around was to plug the power into the dash cam it self (less desirable side plug - more visible - vs GPS mount top plug). This worked for some, others found Quality Assurance/Build quality problems in the A119 v1 side power plug. This caused many RMAs, and annoyance. The A119 v2 gets marked down for the faults of the v1 sadly. Lackluster parking mode: not buffered, not automatic, no low voltage cut off feature built in. Buffered recording - a few seconds before the motion sensor is activated Excellent parking mode dash cams are able to record. Automatic - Some dash cams are able to detect when you are parked, A119 v2 is not. Low voltage cut off feature - Built in ones can generally change voltage/timer of cut off. Cheap hardwire kits like you chose are preset, and unchangable. (Works for most not all.)

  • Thinkware F50 1-CH ($69.99 USD) - Fair video quality, Excellent build quality, Excellent parking mode. - Lacks a Wifi/cell phone app, but format free technology helps and reliability is top notch. ($69.99 USD) - 2nd vendor. ($90-110 USD) - 3rd vendor. - There is a coupon code for this one in the video description.

  • BlackVue DR450-1CH ($119.99 USD) Excellent build quality, Excellent parking mode, lacks wifi, optional gps, lack of reviews.


    For the money you are spending, I would pick the BlackVue DR450-1CH with - $10 USD discount code: Receive $10 off with "top5blackboxmycar" when shopping for a dash cam over $99.99 at BlackboxMyCar.com - From Top 5 Dash Cams of 2016 - video description. I would like to see more reviews, but BlackVue is an excellent name, and has put out quality products in the past.
u/FunnyBunny1313 · 2 pointsr/DSLR

Yeah, the amazon kits, for the most part, are just junk, and the stuff you do really want is bad quality. It's substantially better to get stuff as you get more experience.

For a camera, I definitely think that you are good with a t6i or t7i. I agree with the other poster to make sure that you get an "i" because they have the swivel screen that makes life so much easier. After a quick check, you could get this referbed t6i for about $500 which is not bad. Don't worry about it coming with a kit lens, sometimes those lenses can be useful, and for the most part, since it is an "amateur" camera, they are hard to find body only. So you should be good there.

I'm not entirely sure what the "tutorial" mode is, but really do read up on the exposure triangle. It's not super difficult (there are TONS of great graphics that help explain it), and it will make your photos/videos SO much better because you will be in control, and more aware of the capabilities and limitations of your camera than if you shoot in a mode that's not manual.

Also a few quick notes about filming with DSLRs that you aren't going to see if you just look at photography sources. One, try your darnest to always shoot ISO 100 when filming. Bumping the ISO in pictures is fine because the grain is either not recognizable or is easy to remove in photos, but it is SUPER noticeable and hard to remove in video. This is because the grain changes every frame, effectively animating it. The other thing is that if you shoot higher than 60 fps, you might end up wanting to add motion blur or something because the video might look a little odd. On the contrary, for photos you'll probably want to shoot more like 200 so that handshake doesn't introduce motion blur.

The other thing that is SUPER IMPORTANT for video and just like "nice to have" for photos is a good memory card that has a high write speed. This is the one that I personally use. If the memory card doesn't have a high write speed, then your camera will just stop recording because the write speed of the memory card can't keep up with the data coming from the camera.

Also, side note, there are tons of articles that will say that canons can't shoot more than 12 minutes of video at a time because it exceeds the 4gb file size (which it can't go past due to stupid copyright laws. I don't get it either). This isn't entirely true. All the canons that I have dealt with (everything from a t3i to 70D) record fine past the 12 minute mark, just when they get done recording it will split it into 4gb files. Only one canon have I ever seen ALWAYS shut done at the 12 minute mark no matter what, so I suspect it was just broken. However, even with my own trusted camera that I have never had problems recording more than 12 minutes has recently stopped at about 30mins (my guess had to do write speeds), so just always be aware.

As far as lighting kits go, this one is pretty good for a beginer. Most people do a basic 3 point lighting which is probably fine enough for what you want to do. So with that in mind, and since you want to do green screen, you might want to get 2 of those kits. The key to doing green screen is to have a really well- and evenly- lit screen. TBH you really don't need to get a green screen kit unless you just want to. All it really is, is just a large piece of fabric anchored in such a way so that there are no wrinkles. Of course, the kits are nicer, but you may want to see if you can DIY that part.

As for a tripod, this one is probably fine for what you want to do. Just keep in mind that if you continue to do more in video/photography you will probably need to get a better one later on. I personally have one like this that I use like as a back-up, so they aren't a complete waste of money.

Hopefully this helps! If you have any more questions feel free to ask!

u/JulieGrenn · 1 pointr/WeddingPhotography

So here is my wishlist for Camera things I sent my husband:

Think Tank Bag

I actually just got this for our anniversary on Halloween and it's freaking amazing. I love Think Tank everything because a) they're so incredibly thoughtful in their design and b) they're made incredibly well. This bag is replacing the current bag I carry JUST lenses and accessories in on the wedding day. On that note their rollerbag is what I use to carry everything and it's also amazing.

Helios Lens

This is basically a trash russian lens that provides really interesting bokeh and intense, awesome sun flare.


I have one of these already, there's a lot of reviews about camera straps, but as a woman it's been the most comfortable strap I've had. I have the American Bison one, it's very soft and incredibly well made. I get compliments on it at weddings all the time, it looks super professional!

Apple Watch

So nice for checking time, texting, and keeping track of timelines on the day of. I love it.


If she needs any computer upgrades that would be a great option too. I need a new mouse because mine is a piece of shit, but monitors, monitor calibration, wacom tablet, etc could be nice too.

All the Microfiber cloths, batteries and SD cards

I buy all these things like candy every season. You can really never have enough of any of them.

As far as her home studio, the first thing I would look at is her chair. Art is nice and everything, but loving her chair and workspace makes such a huge difference. It's hard sitting ALL DAY, my back and neck hurt after a full day. I re-did most of my office and bought a bunch of plants and a new desk and it's made my days much better. Next purchase is a chair.

Hope this helps! I'm sure she'll love whatever you get her :).

u/cptdungle · 3 pointsr/Filmmakers

Well, If filmmaking and video is your goal with these cameras I wouldn't recommend either.

If you're just starting and serious about video production here's a pretty effective starter kit that's just a tad over your $400 budget.

[Camera: Canon Vixia HF R400] (http://www.amazon.com/Canon-VIXIA-R400-Advanced-Camcorder/dp/B00AWZFJ22/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1395594961&sr=8-1&keywords=canon+vixia+hf+r400)
This is a decent starter camera. It's got a decent range of focal lengths, optical stabilization, microphone input, progressive frame-rates and most of all designed with video in mind. You'll need a SD Card

I noticed the cameras you picked resembles DSLRs but keep in mind that these in particular are not and with fixed lenses which defeats the purpose of having DSLR for video. Trust me, learn how to be effective with a camcorder first! Then, when your skill requires more artistic control you can upgrade.

[Microphone:] (http://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-ATR-6550-Condenser-Shotgun-Microphone/dp/B002GYPS3M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1395595673&sr=8-1&keywords=shotgun+microphone)
Having clean audio is probably the most important part filmmaking! The key is to get the mic as close to your subject as possible and away from your camera. You'll need a cable. If you need to mount it to your camera use this [bracket.] (http://www.amazon.com/Heavy-Photography-Bracket-Standard-Mounts/dp/B005Z4ROIW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1395595189&sr=8-1&keywords=flash+bracket) This bracket will also help keep the camera stabilized when you go handheld.

Keep in mind this won't deliver perfect audio but it will be a MASSIVE improvement to the on board microphone and learning how to record with decent audio in mind is your first step into becoming a pro.

[Lighting:] (http://www.amazon.com/Bayco-SL-300-Clamp-Aluminum-Reflector/dp/B007RKKEHA/ref=sr_1_17?ie=UTF8&qid=1395595354&sr=8-17&keywords=can+lights)
Lighting is EXTREMELY important. A couple of these can lights will not only help with your image quality but put in you in the right direction for learning how to properly light your scene. You could start with daylight equivalent CFL bulbs.

[Tripod:] (http://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-60-Inch-Lightweight-Tripod-Bag/dp/B005KP473Q/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1395595413&sr=8-3&keywords=tripod)
You NEED a tripod. This one is cheap and cheerful. Looping the ends of a couple rubber brands around the pan handle and the other end around your finger will help deliver some smoother pans!

Total: $425/£258

Some things to keep in mind:

  • These are far from pro tools but if all used in conjuncture you can deliver a much more effective production than just merely using a camera on a tripod.

  • Build a crew of friends. Although you can "one man band" it I don't recommend it because one of coolest things about film is that it's almost always a group effort towards an artistic goal!

  • Most importantly, the equipment are just tools. They don't tell the story; you do! Your film/video is only as powerful as the story you want to tell!

    Best of luck to you!

u/fzammetti · 5 pointsr/Surface

I can tell you it works great as a desktop replacement because that's EXACTLY what I did!

I run mine with two external monitors using this DP hub:


...and I also have this USB hub:


...which has a built-in gigE port. I also picked up a 64Gb uSD card for a little expanded storage:


On top of that, I picked up a 1Tb external USB3 HD from Best Buy for around $50, though I'm not actually using it now.

I of course have a proper keyboard and mouse attached. The only thing missing from the equation is the docking station, but that's pre-ordered.

Yes, the whole setup was pricey (around $1700 all-in for the 256Gb i5 model, plus $200 for the dock later) but it's allowed me to replace my desktop AND laptop that I sometimes used with one very portable and capable package. I'm VERY happy.

I use it primarily for various forms of software development, which tends to be more demanding than typical use... I can tell you it has performed flawlessly in this role for me the past few weeks. Everything I've thrown at it so far has worked as expected and with excellent performance. I've done some video editing on it too and that's been fine as well.

It's also not bad for the somewhat limited gaming I do. I still play the original Halo and Postal 2, but nothing more demanding. I've run all the 3DMark demos on it too and it perform well up until about two versions ago, so my take is if you're looking for games no newer than about 2-3 years ago you're going to be fine, anything newer might not work out as well (at best you'll likely have to crank settings down). If you want better gaming I'd suggest the i7 is what you want... better GPU in addition to the CPU bump. I originally planned to get that but I got impatient :) The i5 has been fine for me though.

u/AShavedApe · 2 pointsr/bmpcc

Hmm, alrighty.

• First you'll need a nice micro four-thirds lens. Since the BMPCC has a crop factor of around 3x, you'll need a pretty wide lens to get a reasonable focal length. I'd recommend either:

  1. Panasonic Lumix G 20mm f/1.7

  2. Panasonic Lumix G 14mm f/2.5

    Either of these lenses would be nice portrait length lenses on the camera and will give you a nice shallow depth of field. The first will give you shallower depth and will be a bit more tightly zoomed. Both of these will fall into the 50mm range which is ideal for a first lens and are rather sharp.

    • I'm not sure what memory card you've already bought but it should be something like this. There's enough space for a decent shoot and it's fast enough to record RAW if you want to delve into the true hype of the camera. The image is incredible either way.

    • Because the camera is so light, you may need something sturdy to attach it to. Tripods that are worth anything at all are a bit pricey but they will last a long long time and if you bargain on one you might not get a steady shot at all. This is the best budget tripod I've found to be honest. It isn't dirt cheap but you'll be glad you have it. If you want to do handheld stuff, please at least use something to weigh it down or your footage will tear and look awful. Slide all the legs in and use this badboy as a monopod!

    That should about do it! The tripod and the SD card are both future-proof and you can use these into the foreseeable ether of time. The lenses are great too and will serve you well until you can get a nice set. I chose a prime over a zoom because, honestly, learning with a prime is infinitely better. Sometimes being a bit limited helps you understand what you're doing a bit more. Also, images are always sharper on primes.
u/possiblydaydreaming · 4 pointsr/dogs

It's not problem! I love photography & talking about it :) I'm just a hobbyist and have had the 6D for about 2 years... but took a year off from photography after my recently passed dog sick and I lost the desire. Puppy is helping bring it back :) I just did nature stuff before... so I'm learning how the heck to photograph moving puppies.

Oooh, I bought the 1.8 just a few days ago specifically for puppy pics (yeah, I'm obsessed!) because I read it had one of the fastest AF and I agree, it's the fastest I've used. I noticed a difference in my captured shots immediately! It focuses SUPER FAST. The 6D is known to be a bit funky with the AF system but I believe the 7D is great and often used for sports? So maybe picking up that lens would give you the bokeh you love with better AF. :) I really want to get into photographing shelter dogs someday. Puppy is good practice!

I also shoot in raw. I also picked up a new SD card that allows photos to write much faster to the disk and helps with burst shots. I was using a pretty generic one before and picked this one up and I have to agree it is writing faster to the disk now.

I do... well, Missy does have an insta! It's HelloMissMissy. Fair warning, it's just photos of her and I post way too much :P

u/kelsor815 · 3 pointsr/Filmmakers

Not an expert either, but I'll give suggestions anyhow.

Camera: I currently have a T2i, it does everything I'd ever want when it comes to that "line" of Canons. The T3i and T4i don't seem that worth it for an upgrade to me. The hardware is the same, and I don't NEED a swivel screen, or touch screen. You may be different, so keep that in mind. That all being said, the T3i body is a good deal.

Lens - I don't personally use this, but I've heard nothing but good from it. Not much more to say I guess. If you want a zoom lens for more versatility during these shows, but it's all relative. I get by at the moment with a nifty 50mm.

Memory Card- I have the 16 gig version of this, and it's been reliable so far.

Audio Recorder- This is where there may be controversy. Most, if not all, people on this subreddit, suggest the Zoom recorder. Its more expensive, so it's up to you. Based on reviews, they are basically the same.

Microphone- Not sure if you WANT this. It depends on what "live audio" you want to record. If its a loud concert, getting audio to sound good will be extremely difficult. The loud volumes, and usually boosted lows, don't make for the best sounding live recording. Recording off a mic isn't the best in any live situation in a venue anyway. If this is the only thing you'd use a mic for, then I may hold back if I were you, if you know you can get a direct line-in to your Tascam recorder. That is the best solution. If not, the mic is great and I recommend it.

Rig Setup- Might want to make a PVC stabilizer, but try and make it look as classy as possible, to look professional (Is that possible with PVC?) If you want to record your Mic audio to your recorder, you'll need this and this to let the DSLR hold both at the same time. You'll need a couple quarter inch converters too. Maybe an XLR as well, if you want to get direct audio feed from whatever the venue is playing.

I think I typed enough. And I probably forgot about something. Anyway, try and make sense of my wall of text, hope it helps.

Edit: Forgot to say, this'll add up to about $1450 if I did my math right. Not including shipping and stuff.

u/BillyTheRatKing · 3 pointsr/photography

SD Cards

According to Canon's website, the t3i can record about 22 minutes to an 8GB SD card. So a 32GB card should be about 88 minutes.

When shopping for an SD card I would always suggest a name brand for reliability. For your specific camera, any card labeled SD/SDHC/SDXC should be compatible. For shooting 1080P video you want at least Class 10 speeds (the little C with a 10 in it). Faster cards are still backwards compatible.

I would suggest something like this SanDisk 32GB Class 10. And I'd probably buy a couple, you never want to be without a spare card!


I'm no expert when it comes to video lighting, I only do photography, and even then I'm not an expert. But as a techie, before buying expensive lights, I would just try to use some LED light bulbs in those stands you already have as they're a standard lamp socket, to get more light and less heat.

Perhaps something like these 20W bulbs? You can try any bulb as long as it has an E26/E27 base is no more than 45 watts.

Something like these LED flood lights might work since they're directional, but they're probably too wide to fit with the umbrellas on.


Getting that bokeh may be difficult. There are five factors that affect background blur, one of which is sensor size, obviously you're not going to buy a new camera, so the sensor size is a fixed value.

To get more background blur you need one or more of the following, a lower fstop on your lens, a higher focal length, to get as close to your subject as possible, and to get the background as far away as possible. So your desire for a wider lens is conflicting with your desire for background blur, and it sounds like space is an issue.

Additionally, since you have a crop sensor camera, lenses are really more zoomed (by 1.6x) in than they would be on a full frame sensor. So your kit lens, I assume goes down to 18mm? So on your camera that is more like 29mm (about the same as a smartphone camera).

I don't necessarily know if I would recommend a wide lens for your application since it will lead to less background blur and will exaggerate facial features when up close, as shown in this example. Although background blur may be impossible if you're in a cramped space anyhow. So if you're going to attempt a wide angle lens, the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 looks like the best, most affordable option (I use Nikon gear myself, so I don't have personal experience), which is equivalent to a 16mm-29mm on your camera. However, that fstop number is higher than both your kit lens and 50mm, which means it lets in less light, which could be an issue.


Hopefully that information was useful and not too confusing. Feel free to ask for clarification if needed. Good luck!

u/abluecolor · 2 pointsr/themountaingoats

Of course!!

It's a bit of an investment, but the equipment I used was the Zoom H4n Pro. Did some research and the Zoom H4n has been a standard for awhile- phenomenal device, and they recently put out an updated model (the Pro) which is identical save for some upgrades to the guts inside (the preamps and the onboard mics). I plan on using it for many years to come.

I took nigelewan's advice and set the h4n in my shirt pocket- it fits snug and perfectly. I kinda hated how it sticks out a bit- the mics are silver and shiny so I have to imagine JD notices it, but the fact that he's currently binging Grateful Dead tapes makes me feel a bit better. Still, I kinda want to paint them black or something. Not sure if that's possible though. The shininess is definitely gaudy, but oh well.

Try to position yourself as close to a speaker as possible. Your recording will end up being what the room at large hears mixed with the crowd audio from around you and also feintly capture JD if he goes off mic which is awesome.

The h4n has a bunch of quality options- I did some research and opted for 24bit/48khz . Apparently that's a sweet spot of making the bass sound really nice and juicy and being high quality but still allowing for a lot of recording time (depending on how big a card you get. I used this 32g card. I used a fresh pair of batteries for each show since I didn't want to take any risks.

You have to set the mic level- I was pretty freaking close to some speakers and it seemed like between 20-35 was the good spot. 20 for most songs, and I'd try to turn it up a few notches when a quieter one came on (and then I'd often forget to turn it back down for the subsequent songs so they'd be louder haha).

Wish you the best of luck! Let me know if you have any other questions.

u/HybridCamRev · 5 pointsr/Filmmakers

/u/might_be_jesus_idk - I have the BMPCC, and if your budget includes $995 for the camera and about $375 more to get it up and running (batteries, LCD viewfinder, etc.), it is still a great camera.

If you really want to learn color grading - and you don't need a still camera, I recommend the BMPCC. It is the least expensive interchangeable lens camera you can buy that has 13+ stops of dynamic range, a built-in 3.5mm headphone jack, can record to 12-bit RAW and 10-bit ProRes straight out of the box - and sets the shutter in degrees instead of fractions of a second (cinema cameras use degrees, still cameras use fractions of a second).

Other cameras in this price class have about 10 stops of DR, no headphone jack, record to low bit rate h.264 codecs and set a 180 degree shutter by dividing 360 by 180, multiplying the answer by the frame rate and then taking the inverse. It's less complicated than it sounds, but it's a pain.

Here is what this little cinema camera can do:







Music Video


Travel/Low Light




There are lots more examples in the [Pocket Cinema Camera group] (https://vimeo.com/groups/pocketcamera) I moderate over on Vimeo.

This camera is terrific, but its ergonomics and battery capacity leave a lot to be desired. You will also need to address the camera's high data rate storage requirements (especially for RAW).

But it doesn't have to cost a lot of money to get started. Here's the setup I use [Referral Links]:

u/bondjaybond · 1 pointr/Filmmakers

As a Youtuber who's invested in the wrong gear before the right gear, here's a quality list that I've found works for my needs and will likely be great for you.


Panasonic GH4: This is a great camera that shoots 4K. If you are shoot in 4K, downscale to 1080p, you have the option to reframe and zoom into a closer shot without losing quality. It has a flip out screen so you can see yourself, focus peaking to show you on screen if you're in focus, and can record longer clips (in select modes) than the Canon T3i to make syncing easier. This camera is also great for when you want to deliver in 4K one day.

AC Power adapter: No worrying about batteries for the indoor shooting. $20


Panasonic 12-35mm: Versatile lens that gives you great range. $1000

14-42 kit lens: Cheaper alternative. $120


Zoom H4N: Great recorder for your mics. Monitor each mic's level independently. $250

Rode NTG-2: Shotgun mic. $270

Sennheiser Wireless Lav: Expensive, but great quality. $640

Audio Technica ATR-3350s: Cheap corded lavs with long wires. $30

You'll need one long XLR cable, a light stand to use for the boom, and some kind of shotgun mic shock mount. $60 for all.


3-light softbox kit: Great kit, been using it for a year with no issues. I don't use the over head light, as I don't have the space. I can use the light stand to boom or for another light. $170

Neewer CN-160: Small LED light to help light certain situations or to use as a hair light. $30


Manfrotto Tripod w/Fluid Head: Great set up, worth the investment, but there are cheaper alternatives. $350

Memory Card

64GB Sandisk Extreme Pro: Great card which will allow for smooth 4K recording. $100

Sure. I have tried it out in day and night, and the video quality at 1920x1080 is awesome in the day, and good at night. It's still pretty dark on rural roads with the exception of what's lit up by the headlights, so it's not perfect. I read during my research that, unless you want to spend $300+ this is as good as it gets for night-time recording. On city streets and other well lit areas like parking lots the night recording is great.

The camera and mount are incredibly light, almost to the point of feeling fragile, but I haven't had any issues. The suction cup has one of those levers, and has not come unstuck from my windshield. The camera attaches and detaches from the suction cup mount by sliding on.

It comes with USB, HDMI mini to HDMI output, and car charger cables (I purchased from this seller on ebay, which took about two weeks to ship out of Hong-Kong, but I was wary of counterfeit products from Amazon sellers). The USB cable is standard mini, and is pretty short so you may need to swap it out. Mine reaches my cigarette lighter just fine (with a 12v to USB converter). The battery seems to be crap, so expect to have it plugged in while recording, which is perfect because it turns on automatically and starts recording when you plug it in, and there is a setting to have it auto power off after a few minutes without direct power.

It has settings for different resolutions (including a lower resolution at maybe 1280x720? not sure) with 60fps vs 30fps at 1920x1080. There are also settings for motion detection (car is bumped in the parking lot), wide dynamic range, infrared lights (I hear these don't really help), auto-shutoff (power disconnect) time, auto-screen-shut-off (still recording) time, etc. I haven't really fiddled with the options much, as it works pretty much out of the box.

You will need a micro SD card. It says it only supports 32GB, but if you buy a 64GB (and maybe 128GB, haven't tested this myself) micro SDXC card and format it to FAT32 with a program like guiformat32, it will allow the camera to record to all 64GB of the device (actual capacity found is something like 59.2GB). I got this one from Amazon.

Let me know if you have any other questions. Hope that helps you decide.

****Do any of this at your own risk or hire a professional to do it for you.***

Here are the parts I ordered to put mine together. I'm posting this bc of PMs.

Mobius or [Cheaper Mobius but longer wait from China] (http://www.banggood.com/Mobius-Action-Camera-1080P-HD-Mini-Sports-Camera-Wide-Angle-Edition-p-917817.html) I wanted the Wide Angle Lens for a better shot

Capacitor You don't want the battery sitting in the sun. A capacitor can handle it. So you replace the battery completely with this capacitor

Windshield Mount My mobius came with a mounting bracket that fits on this mount. The mount itself is very small, but the 3M sticker is very strong.

Hardwire Kit When hard wiring this in to the car via fuse box, this knocks the voltage down from 12v to 5v, which is what the camera needs. I used some wire strippers to expose about 5" of the red and black cables. Then stripped about an inch off each cable to expose the actual wire. The red wire goes in to the add-a-circuit mentioned below, then you crimp it closed with pliers (wasn't super easy, I must be weak). You partially unscrew a metal bolt that is attached to the metal car frame as a ground ( I used the one on top of my fuse box).

USB to Mini-USB This connects from the hardwire kit to the camera or 90 degree elbow mentioned next, for a better angle. If you are setting up the auto record when external power is on, which is what you want to do for a dash cam, you need to cut a piece of electrical tape width-wise and cover the two middle pins inside the USB cable. This is because the two middle pins (2 and 3) are data pins. Leaving those exposed makes the camera think its connected to a computer and will only do data transferring. By covering them, it only get power from pins 1 and 4 and doesn't think it's connected to a computer and will actually record.

Right Angle Mini-USB to Mini-USB Adapted This just helped keep the USB cable from sticking out too much (better angle)

Add-a-circuit This is the ATO (bigger fuse), but I ended up using the ATM (Mini) because my car has both and the fuse I wanted to use ended up being a Mini. It'd be best to look through your fuse diagram and find something non-vital (meaning don't tap in to a fuse that controls ABS or airbags, etc) and switchable (meaning it only comes on when the car turns on. You don't want the camera running 24/7), figure out what type of fuse it is, and buy that size. I ended up getting my new add-a-circuit (Littlefuse) from Oreilly auto parts for $6.99 and it came with 3, 4, 7.5, and 10A fuses. Also take note of the amperage (Never use a higher amp fuse than your add-a-circuit supports because the wire gauge may not support it and melt/burn. When adding the circuit, I removed the original fuse from the fuse box, a 10A fuse and put it the first slot(my add-a-circuit supports up to 10A) and for the 2nd slot, I used a 3A fuse because the camera and radar don't draw much. You don't want to use a higher amp fuse than necessary. Also, in my car 2011 JettaSportwagen, the add-a-circuit points down or it doesn't work. Make sure it's plugged in the correct direction or it won't do anything

32GB MicroSD Card Works fine, just make sure to format it through the camera.

Unofficial but awesome Mobius Configuration Tool Use the tooltips(hover over each option) to figure out what each things does. I set mine to autorecord when external power or the button are pushed.

You can find a lot of info here: dashcamtalk.com

To summarize the connections are:

Choose a fuse from your car's fuse diagram (non-essential and switchable), pull it, place it in the correct slot of the add-a-circuit (don't go to higher amps than is supported), plug in a fuse from the add-a-circuit kit in to the other slot to protect your camera (I used a 3A), strip the hardwire kit's cables mentioned above, put the red cable (+) from the hard wire kit in the the red end of the add-a-circuit and crimp it closed, attach the black cable (-) to a screw attached to the metal car frame, tape the two middle pins (2 and 3) in the USB cable with electrical tape, plug the USB in to the female USB on the hardwire kit, run the USB cable from the fuse box around the edges of your cars trim, up by the rearview mirror, attach the right-angle mini-usb adapter, choose where you want to mount the camera (make sure to check using the USB plugged in and camera mounted to the mount, in case it bumps the rearview mirror) (I held it on the windshield about where I thought I wanted it (to behind and to the right of the rearview mirror and took some test footage, watched it on a computer, decided it looked ok, pulled the sticker cover and attached it), clean your windshield with glass cleaner, attach the mount.

u/Jespy · 2 pointsr/3DS

Hori Screen Protectors - easy to apply and gives you the assurance of not scratching your screen.

Better Stylus - the one that comes with the 3ds is fine but I find getting a better stylus works wonders when playing a stylus heavy games. Rocketfish sells stylus similar to the ones that came with the dsi xl in packs of 2 and I think can still be found at bestbuy.

Carrying case - if you like bringing your 3ds around for streetpass then putting it in a carrying case and tossing it into a bag will prevent wear and damaged to the system itself. I'm currently using a Hori carrying case and I find it pretty handy and it can hold 3 games.

Bigger SD card - if you plan on downloading from the e-shop then a nice 32gb sd card is great.

Assist grip - coolclown makes a nice assist grip that I find really comfortable if you plan on using your 3ds for long periods of time.

Crystal clear case - some people don't like the extra bulk but I like them for protecting the outside of the 3ds. If you purchased a limited edition 3ds then a hori tpu casing doesn't add too much bulk and protects your handheld.

u/mjconns · 1 pointr/travel

I'm one of those people that carries a lot of DSLR gear with me. I take a Nikon D800 and 3-4 lenses. You can check out my most recent travel album here. Photography is my passion, so I can't bring myself to take less. I love it and want to take loads of pictures. So for me, it makes sense. However, to anyone not into photography like I am, it isn't what I advise.

I recommend that you don't get a DSLR. If you're not very comfortable/familiar with shooting a DSLR, you'll use it on auto a lot. If you're using it on auto, you're paying too much for the camera you're getting. Instead, get a smaller/compact micro 4/3 sensor. They can let you change lenses (like a DSLR), have good quality, are small, cheap, and still take excellent quality photos for Internet use (they won't print as big as some DLSRs can, but that's rarely done with travel photos and your average traveler). They won't be as good in low-lighting, but that will be a non-issue for many.

In your price range, I recommend the Olympus PEN E-PL6 Digital Camera with 14-42mm II Lens. It comes with a zoom lens range that will be good for travel; you'll be able to do landscapes or walk-about shots in cities. It won't zoom far out, but you could buy another lens for that. However, I find that zooming far out is rarely done in my travels so I don't plan my setups around that rare need. A recent post with good pics using this camera can be seen here.

I would then get TWO 32 GB memory cards. Back them up often to your PC (if you're taking one).

Get a very small travel tripod. It won't be perfect for all situations, but it's better than none and it's very easy to travel with. If you want a night shot, you'll need a tripod. Or if you want to do a selfie that doesn't look like a selfie, put the camera on a timer and go stand in front of it on the tripod. It's cheap and light and adds more options.

Lastly, get some kind of camera bag that can hold all of your camera equipement + a laptop/tablet. It's nice to keep everything together, they usually have lots of pockets to store caps, SD cards, misc items, etc that are easy to lose in general travel luggage.

All of this should be within your budget and you'll get great photos out of it.

u/SaraphXIII · 1 pointr/miniSNESmods


Order Number: #20837 here. I've been trying to reach you unsuccessfully since April 19th. Please reply.


Original e-mails:





Thank you for getting back to me, these did arrive shortly after your email. I am experiencing some issues though. I wasn't able to get one of them working so I removed it and tried the other with some success. I'm able to see the expanded storage and use it some of the time, but more often than not the system will lock up not allowing anything to be done with it. Is this an issue you've run into at all? 

I'm going to try the other one on a different system but if that won't work can I send this back for a replacement? 

Thank you for your time.




Yeah I apologize, this is something that happens with some cards. I've dumped at least 40 hours into this issue and as far as I can tell it's only an issue with larger cards, especially SDXC cards. I've determined that there's something wrong with the way Hakchi2 prepares the system for SD compatibility. I've been in close talks with the devs and have supplied them with hardware so they can test. They are able to replicate the issue, so it's really a matter of time until we find a solution.

Since you've confirmed you're having the same issue, can I ask when you purchased your system? I'm having a hard time nailing down which systems are affected, whether it's a certain release line or across the board.

Once a solution comes out I will be sending a message to anyone who has bought a Super Storage and notify them to update to the latest version of Hakchi2.

Thank you!





This system was just recently purchased. As for the other board, I did install it into another SNES classic and it acts the same as the first. It will flicker a bit but eventually go dark. I did swap the SD board and both are fine, is there any way I can send this back to get a replacement/refund? While one does partially work and as you've stated, is being worked on to overcome the issues you're having, I may not be able to use the other one since it was for a friend.

FYI this is the SDHC card I purchased. It was the smallest one I could find that was a decent price:


u/jam6618 · 5 pointsr/videography

For starters, I'd be glad to help you find the right camcorder!

Here is an option:

  1. Camera: Panasonic HC-V770K Full HD Camcorder - A fantastic camcorder for the price, just about the cheapest still with good features. It is pushing the budget a bit but i think it would be worth it. 5-axis image stabilization, 1080p with slow-mo, wide aperture for low light, timelapse mode, and more.

  2. Shotgun Mic: Rode VideoMic GO Lightweight On-Camera Microphone - A good small shotgun mic that does not require a battery (uses very little power from the camera).

  3. SD Card: SanDisk 32GB Ultra Memory Card - 2 32GB memory cards should get you plenty of record time and allow you to off-load the footage from one card while being able to use the 2nd card.

  4. Camera Bag: Ruggard Commando 25 Shoulder Bag - A great little camera bag that should fit everything you need in it. If you think it is too small, just step up to it's bigger brother the Commando 36.

  5. LED Light: Genaray LED-2100 36 LED Compact On-Camera Light - A great little on-camera LED light to add more light if you think that is going to be an issue. It can totally be removed if you need to cut down the budget and you dont think you will need it. (a smartphone light would work in a pinch if you rarely need extra light)

  6. Extra Battery: Panasonic Lithium-Ion Camcorder Battery Pack (3.6V, 1940mAh) - This is another battery of the same size as the included one. According to product specialists, it will get you ~1.5 hrs per battery. If you need to cut down on the budget, I would recommend cutting the extra battery and using the included AC adapter more often or using a USB battery pack to power the camera.

    For attaching the mic, slide the included detachable cold shoe mount into the slot at the rear of the camera until it clicks, slide the mic into the cold shoe and tighten the knob to secure it in place. For attaching the LED light, screw the bar into the bottom of the camera and attach the LED light to the bar similar to attaching the mic.

    If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to ask. I hope this helps!
u/breachmallow · 68 pointsr/raspberry_pi

I made this Pi controlled irrigation system. The goal was to make it as user friendly as possible. It is not finished yet. I had to get a working proto going as soon as possible because I moved to a different state and my parents are selling this house. Not to mention fall semester starts on Monday. I plan on working on this as much as possible on my free time and then make a guide and share my code with everyone so others can benefit from my work. If you want my current code and want to improve on it please PM me. Also, I would love it if you shared your version with me as I will implement it into my code. I want to share my best with everyone.

P.S. I did not document my code at all. I mainly hard coded all of this in the past few days since I was limited on time. I am also a noob on Kivy and this is my first big Pi project.

Edit: Below are the hardware

Landzo 7 inch touch panel - 40.88

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B - 39.99

32 GB flash - 15.69

DS3231 RTC Clock Module - 5.99

4 channel relay - 6.99

Uxcell enclosure - 9.99

M2.5 hex spacer screws - 9.98

Modified internal panel - 8.30

Total: 137.81

PS. Definitely could be cheaper. For me it sure was because I had some of the parts already available that came in a some sort of kit.

u/AlexAinsworth · 1 pointr/videography

I currently own a 6D, I was one of the ones really excited for its release. AN AFFORDABLE FULL FRAME DSLR RIGHT?

So I bought it over the holiday and I am loving it. I've been using on and off for school projects for the past 5 months, and have 2 weddings over the next 2 weekends.

Keep in mind, because it takes SD cards instead of CF cards, the write speed will be a little slower. This was the biggest issue when I first purchased it, I thought I had fast enough SD cards but my footage told other wise. I purchased the fastest SD card that I could find, a SanDisk Extreme Pro and it makes a world of difference; especially at the All-I recording speed.

Your Rokinon lenses are going to change as well, if I'm not mistaken they're not made for an APS-C sensor, so the 35 will be wider on the full frame, and the 85 will be as well. Canon's APS-C sensors have a crop factor of 1.6x on lenses not made for APS-C; so you've essentially been working with 56mm and 136mm lenses.

BUT, just remember to buy really fast SD cards, and great glass. She'll treat you great just as she's treated me.

u/rolfraikou · 1 pointr/sandiego

Wasn't there, but as a dashcam owner, I must suggest what you do for the future. I recently had a super easy time with an accident, in part because I think the at-fault driver noticed my front and rear dashcams. Or he was just honest and cool.

Anyway, I have two of these, Aukey DR02 dashcams. And besides the image clarity and ease of use, I also suggest these because they are using capacitors instead of lithium ion. The perk to using lithium ion is that the camera will stay on for a minute or two after the engine is cut. The downside is that in hot california weather, lithium ion batteries will expand and even explode. I lost three lithium ion based dashcams to heat before I discovered that ones with capacitors would solve this issue.

I purchased even longer cables than they provide, and routed them in all sorts of nooks and crannies, under the rubber on the trim, under parts of the trim, so that you can't see or trip on the cables anywhere.

They are powered via the cigarette lighter plug. There are options out there with multiple usb ports, including crazy ones like this one

Since it has flat sides, you can adhere it somewhere out of the way with double sided adhesive tape. If you have a compartment in your center console, for example.

I would also suggest you use something like these sandisk microSD cards but the important part is that they be high endurance, as the dashcams are constantly writing data to them. This is a lot more than most MicroSD cards are expected to endure in a camera or on a phone, and it doesn't cost that much more. I think the peace of mind is entirely worth it.

u/quantum-quetzal · 1 pointr/photography

Generally speaking, any SD card will work. However, if it's too slow, you might not be able to record video for very long, and writing images to the card might take longer.

That said, the T6 isn't a particularly demanding camera for SD cards. A card like this won't limit the camera in any way, and is quite affordable.

You might also want to pick up a few accessories. I personally would suggest getting a lens hood. They help prevent flare, and can even slightly protect your lens against impacts from the front. There's no reason to buy the official ones, though. Here's a third party one that will work on your lens, and is way cheaper than the Canon one.

You might also want a tripod, so you can play around with long exposures and low light shooting. It doesn't really make sense for you to buy anything super fancy at this point. I've heard good things about the Amazon Basics one, and it's less than $20.

Beyond that, you might want a camera bag. I don't really know much about what is out there right now, but there should be plenty of options. It might be a good idea to go to your local electronics store and try out a few, since you want to make sure that it's comfortable.

Let me know if you have any other questions, and good luck shooting!

u/johnnywahl · 8 pointsr/dashcams

Dashcam is a cheap way to have an extra peace of mind. Definitely recommend it. Also they are low maintenance. I don’t ever notice mine because it sits in front in rear view mirror.

Regarding the price, I say go for a mid range. The cheapo ones can be unreliable and low build quality. The expensive ones tend to be too much and more than what most people need. A good mid range dual cam is the A129. Make sure to get a good SD card too, one that is optimized for video. Fortunately they are pretty cheap.

Installation is easy if you just plug it to your cigarette lighter. Then you just run the cable in your trim, which is super easy to tuck into at the edge.

The next level is hardwiring it to your fuse box. That takes about an hour and can be done with a YouTube video instructional. Or take it into a car audio shop and they can probably do it for $150 or so.

Hope this helps!

u/Tuscan_Computer · 6 pointsr/WiiHacks

First off, read my info here against utilizing a flash drive for maintaining your softmod. You do NOT want your only NAND backup on that thing if it fails.

Besides this, my best recommendations are:

  1. Use a portable SSD over a traditional portable HDD.
  2. A great portable SSD that I would recommend is this one. It's a medium-sized 256GB SSD that's around $45. If you're interested, their page also hosts a 1TB drive for $119 but that's completely up to you.

    The reasons I'm recommending a mid-triple digit megabit transfer rates are not for your Wii or even future Wii U system, it's for backup ability and higher transfer speeds to copy from a PC, or other device with extreme ease.

    My next recommendation is a C10 ultra speed SD card averaging in at 128GB. With a micro to standard SD card adaptor, you can even use a mobile device to begin softmodding your Wii via Letterbomb. Check it out here

    The reasoning for such an unnecessary amount of space for your SD is for the predictable inability to utilize the GameCube's Nintendont software. Pretty common to have this fail in various areas.

    Software recommendations: Wii Backup Manager (x86/x64). This will be helpful for back and forth compatibility between your pc (if you have one), and your Wii. Without it in front of me, I can't remember the GameCube iso prep tool for expanding and shrinking isos, but if you're interested in that I'll pull that data from my old external for you to utilize (of course if you decide to play GC games).

    Hardware recommendations: simply get a GameCube controller. Though it's hard to spot an official GC controller on Amazon for a decent price, it's worth searching.

    I've had my Wii modded for almost 6 - 7 years and have played it forever. Before that, I had another Wii that I had modded for 3 years. I've never had more fun until my Wii U came in the mail a few days ago.

    Hope this helps! ✌️

> RAVPower batteries, and the little charger unit. How do these compare to the o

  1. i've had good experience with those same RAVPower batteries, another user posted saying he got very poor battery life and suspected he got dud's. Definitely try them a few full charges before your trip .

    2)you need SDXC , at least 64GB and it should say UH3 on it. I bought a lexxar one off amazon but it rated no where near the speed it should of been so returned and got a sandisk extreme. Which works great.
    link here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01J5RHD58/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

  2. That's a tricky question, as I personally like to keep the RAW files and would backup via a laptop, you don't have that luxury. Copying to the iPad via the direct wifi connection everynight is an option, im guessing it doesnt transfer raw. from there you could upload to somewhere like dropbox for extra security and peace of mind. 64GB is pretty huge for photos, if your not taking video you might be fine in terms of capacity, however still recommended to back up in case you loose the camera whilst your out.

    EDIT: It should be noted that memory card spec , is minimum for video recording in 4k XAVC, if your just doing photos then your fine getting something cheaper.
u/downshiftnow · 2 pointsr/Surface

Read speed wise, most microSD cards are comparable so if that's your only concern, the 200gb SanDisk Ultra is your best bet. If you care at all about write speed, you should look elsewhere. Also, be wary of UHS-II spec cards that claim 150mbps read speed (along with a laughable 20mbps write) that require an adapter to achieve such speeds such as this one https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00U77V5KU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_ep_dp_5BxzybEV9MBMT

If you're looking for the best microSD hands down, it's the Samsung 256gb EVO+. MSRP is $249 and Amazon has it for $139. Quite the bargain. A ton are in the wild considering that many people such as myself chose this as the freebie for purchasing a Note7 (or S7/S7 edge). https://smile.amazon.com/Samsung-256GB-EVO-UHS-I-microSDXC/dp/B01JNGCWHU/ref=sr_1_6?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1483139819&sr=1-6&keywords=evo%2B+256

If you're looking to spend a bit less and can do with half the storage, the Samsung 128gb PRO Select is your next best bet. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01DOB6YUQ?ref=emc_b_5_t

Both of those cards are rated at 90mbps write and read with real life usage hitting within a couple mbps of that.

u/Silverfin113 · 1 pointr/gopro

the best place will be online on amazon.com or people on this subreddit may point out places that are having especially good deals, right now this usually applies for the hero 3 black.

Depending on which camera you get there are certain micro sd specifications. If you plan on getting the white I believe you need a class 8 or above but considering the deals available for the newer models I would advise against this.

Getting the Silver you should get any micro sd that's class 10 I think this was the best deal when I got mine.


for the black you'll need again any class 10 but avoid using sandisk as there have been some problems where the gopro limits the bitrate for the very high resolutions.

For the black + you'll need one of the micro sd cards specified on this list


you can find micro sd cards in store at best buy or radioshack or office depot but they will be more expensive than they will be online, and if you need to get one of the micro sd cards specified on the list, youll probably have to buy it online (I didnt see any in store).

If your getting the black or black+ this is the micro sd I got


let me know if theres anything else, best of luck

u/flxgssler · 2 pointsr/mac

using the exact same model for that kind of work as well, and it works like a charm 👌🏼
The display panel looks great and the size is very comfortable while doing some work on the ride. I would also recommend those SD card expansions for macbooks. It finishes flush with the housing and offeres a cheap storage expansion :)

Transcend JetDrive @ Amazon

u/PaperJesus · 3 pointsr/photography

So, when I got this camera, I was also in the same situation where I needed to get an SD card for it. The two most important things I considered were SD card size and write speed. Well, I guess price played into it too.

This is a pretty good resource for learning the difference between what's on each SD card. I also would recommend ordering it via Amazon if possible instead of getting it from Best Buy because you'll save a lot of money.

I ended up getting this for my camera. I've been happy with it except that I still find that there is some delay after I take a bunch of shots. The ones recommended by u/rideThe seem to be a lot faster than this card and not too much more expensive. If I were to choose again, I would probably go with one of those.

u/hooperre · 1 pointr/RetroPie

Man... I wish I could be of more help.

As far as the ROM... I've had it for years so I honestly don't remember. The site I used back in the day was pretty cool but I think they removed their Nintendo ROMs a while back.

I wish I did something fancy, but I didn't. It was just a clean RPi 3 and RetroPie install (4.1) on my new Pi with a wired PS4 controller, I think I used the Rice Plugin, my SD card is the Samsung EVO Plus (I was running the ROM off the EVO plus), and ummmm I think that's it. I wish I could be more helpful.

ETA: If I can be of more help, just let me know. Goldeneye was the game I went to first as it's an all-timer, so I don't mind helping out.

u/provideocreator · 2 pointsr/videography

iPhones shoot decent video, but the manual control you get over these cameras and their lenses allows for more creativity, and that's a major limitation for the phones.

The G7 is one of the best choices in this price range, but I would like to provide you with one alternative to consider. That would be the Panasonic GX85. With that kit I linked, you'll get the GX85 with the 12-32mm lens, and the 45-150mm lens. The price is $50 cheaper than the G7, but you get the additional lens, instead of the microphone and SD card. You can pick up a SanDisk Extreme Pro card for $23 and still be cheaper than that other kit.

Here's the differences you need to consider with this setup:

  • Compared to the G7, the GX85 has no microphone OR microphone input, so you can't add an external microphone without using a separate audio recorder and syncing it separately. It does have internal audio though.

  • The GX85 has in body image stabilization and the G7 does not. This will make any handheld shots quite a bit smoother. Similar to what you would get on the G85 or GH5. Without this, the G7 footage will be pretty shaky if you don't use another stabilization rig, so that's pretty limiting.

  • The GX85 screen also doesn't flip out in the same way as the G7

    In my opinion, both these cameras are a good value for the money and the two best available options for around $500. It just depends on your personal preference and how you'll be using it.

u/Phdeznuts · 1 pointr/SonyAlpha

I thought the same, but I have fallen in love my used 2.8 with a polarizer on it (also, highly recommend). Mess with that and see what else you need. For instance, I use that and the 55-210mm zoom; I think those 2 lenses allow me to do everything I want, with the 30mm being on my alpha 92% of the time. Maybe a 12mm for wide landscape are in my future? Nonetheless, 30mm is a great start, then take your time to discover what focal length you need for what occasions!
Get a strap that’ll be comfortable for you, I got this 2-in-1 strap for casual carrying and I switch to the wristlet for when I’m actively shooting. A nice card, maybe a hot shoe cover, and maybe a Gorillapod hybrid

>So I've got this charger. It's a new charger, cable all looks good and is about 1.5m long.

That looks like the official power supply and I trust that seller not to sell fakes.

✔️ Power OK

>This SD Card

✔️ SD Card OK

>unplugged the fan ... external drive is self-powered via AC

✔️ Peripherals OK

>I haven't overclocked the Pi myself, and a arm_freq gives me 1400.

✔️ Clock probably OK

>I'm on the LibreELEC 9.0.1.

✔️ That seems to be the latest. It's still possible something could be messed up on your install. If a fresh image doesn't resolve the problem, you could try rolling back one version to LibreELEC-RPi2.arm-9.0.0.img.gz.

>I forgot to mention that when you power back up, it has updated the library with the new media!

⚠️ That's odd. Does it completely finish the library update, or just part of it?

>it doesn't crash when the external drive isn't plugged in

⚠️ That seems like a strong indication that the USB drive has something to do with it, but I can't imagine what. It has its own AC power adapter, so it probably isn't pulling voltage down when it spins up. If the drive isn't too full, would you consider reformatting it? I'd be interested to know if it behaves differently after formatting as a different file system, like ext4. You can go a step further and wipe out the whole partition table. I think LibreELEC should have the commands you need in order to format a drive from the terminal/ssh.

u/rootchino · 2 pointsr/asmr

You're in luck V! There is an A/C Adapter available, Nikon did it kinda weird and didn't include a simple power port on the camera so you need two items. The first is an adapter that looks like your normal battery pack but has a cord off of it and the second is the actual power cord you plug into the wall. Connect those two together and you can record until the next ice age! I've double checked, both of these items are compatible with your model so you're good to go. $62 and free shipping sure beats buying a new camera! :)


Power Cord:

You also might want to throw in a larger SD card to give you more recording time, not sure what you have now but it has to be pretty small to only give you 20mins. This 16GB card should give you close to 4 hours and is only $13:

Pm me if you have any questions!

u/Galen640 · 10 pointsr/Switch

First of all: Screen Protector. Once it's on you never notice it, doesn't hurt to get that extra safety!

I've bought 10 games so far, and I'd say get all of these because I have enjoyed them. BOTW, Splatoon 2, Sonic Mania, Rayman Legends, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 (assuming you like DBZ,) Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Pokken Tournament DX, Street Fighter 2 Ultra, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and Yooka Laylee.

If I had to pick 3 for you to get to start out then I would pick Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. I think that's enough variety to keep you busy for awhile.

A carrying is always a good thing, I'd recommend This case because it's the one I use and does its job.

Accessory wise I have joycon grips which are AMAZING when playing with one joycon.

Also, the grip it comes with is trash. Get the Power A Grip it feels A LOT better in your hands.

As for SD Cards, it depends. I have a 32GB SD card. I mainly buy physical games, The extra space is for screenshots and videos, and download only games, like Sonic Mania, Yooka Laylee, etc. If you're going for digital only then get a 256GB. Sure you won't use a ton of space now, but you might a few years down the line. Also, do NOT get the official Nintendo ones. They are a RIP-OFF! Here are some nice alternatives that will get the job done for A LOT cheaper: 32 GB 64 GB 128 GB and finally 256 GB

If you have any other questions feel free to ask OP, and other (potential) switch owners!

Quick edit: sorry that some links won't be put with the text, no idea what the issue is

u/IM_THE_DECOY · 3 pointsr/gopro

As someone who has recently spent a lot of time researching SD cards for a new GoPro. Allow me to save you a lot of time.

Don't bother with anything less than class 10. Anything lower will not work.

Avoid Sandisk, they work fine for some people, but lots of people have issues with them.

A single 32GB card will provide more shooting time than a single battery will give you, so if you don't have extra batteries and don't plan on getting any, 32GB is fine. However, extra batteries are relatively cheap, so I opted to go for 64GB.

Long story short:
This is the one I went with

That is about the best bang for you buck your going to find.

There are a few (slightly) better cards out there, but they are over 100 dollars.

Hope this helps.

u/MrMcPickle3000 · 2 pointsr/Dashcam

My response is probably tl;dr, lol. But I made the response more detailed because of your continued interest and because I wish I had this info available to me prior to purchasing dashcams.

Have you had any overheating issues? No, never had this issue with the 55's and I used to drive rideshare on average of 30+ hrs per week in the scorching summer months of LA. Although, I don't know for certain if the dashcam 25's had a notification that states "overheating" or something like that; however, my 25's did fail repeatedly and may/may not have been as a result of me not using the original manufacturer charging cables. Having a dashcam from a reputable manufacturer, like I commented before, has its advantages like customer service, firmware updates, replacements, reputation etc.

Example: When my 25's failed, Garmin stiffed me by sending out refurbs and those had the same issues. So, I played my hand by going through the Dept of Consumer Affairs and the District Attorney's office because they would fail mid-drive and so I stated this was due to poor manufacturing and dangerous as it is a distraction and failure to record in case an incident did occur. They contacted Garmin and I got a call from a personal number of a Garmin rep that does damage control. I sent them the failed 25's and after they tested them, they sent me brand new 55's free of charge. Of course, I had to show them proofs of purchase of the 25's.

Do you have lane departure and forward collision turned off because of false readings? I do not have it switched off. Whatever helps keep me focused on the road is helpful. You may think, "well, it takes your focus off the road", but I don't really look at those notifications; I only listen for them. I use them to let me know that something of crucial importance is happening in front of or around me and so I focus more acutely on the road rather than the notifications themselves.

I've never tried other dashcams outide og the Garmin 25 and 55, but, whatever dashcam you are going to go with, make sure you do not plug them into the basic usb charging ports. I've personally had issues with those ports not providing enough power and the dashcams failing as a result. My '14 corolla has only 1 lighter port, but I have 2 dashcams and my phone plugged in and passengers phones when I used to drive rideshare, so I bought this to remedy the issue and haven't had problems since: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078HMYV7G/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I haven't tried hardwiring them into the car's fuse box. Maybe i will, maybe I won't. Don't know as of yet.

Also, dashcams have a high overwrite frequency that lends to reduced life spans/reduced memory of sd cards causing them to suddenly stop recording mid-drive, so go with these and they should remedy that problem: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07B9KTLJZ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Imo, as driver distractions have increased over the past 5 years with smart phones, in-car apps, etc, dashcams are crucial for everyone. Think about it, as driver accidents go up, insurance companies profits go down as a result of them having to fork over money for repairs, so they are constantly trying to absolve themselves of financial responsibility by concluding that both parties are responsible for collisions, therefore, reducing their expenses as a result of insured parties paying their deductibles. If drivers had video evidence, i.e. dashcams, drivers would instantly save on the cost of their dashcams in case of collisions. Car manufacturers may eventually build dashcams into cars as a result of consumer demand, but they'd face some backlash from insurance companies because of potential collusion. I think I'll post about this just for fun.

u/DronesWorkHard · 1 pointr/cade

on a side note. your most inexpensive way to get playing third strike while learning the programming part, before making a big commitment to the cabinet parts would be to buy the raspberry pi (canakit) and hook it up to a TV until you have the software where you want it. Then you can build a cabinet around it and you know it will work.

if you want to go this route you will need

RP3 canakit

SD card you dont need one this big but it will allow you to upgrade your library forever. I bought 3 cards on the way to this one. Should have got the big one to start

and any controllers. PS4 controllers work best in my experience, although i have used ps3 as well. You can check a thrift shop or buy these sweet controllers although i have not personally tested them

u/saaatchmo · -1 pointsr/PavlovGame

OG Vive with TPCast here too!

You'll need to use "Open TP Cast" to have wireless Mic functionality.

It's what I use and more importantly it also has huge performance benefits over the normal TPCast software.

Basic Guide:

1.) Buy a $5.79 16GB Class 10 Micro SD card from Amazon then download and load the latest TPCast software onto it. Also, install the latest OpenTPCast Drivers from the same site.

2.) Use a small Phillip's head screwdriver to quickly take apart the receiver from your TPCast and swap the SDCard out for your newly loaded one. (Keep your old MicroSD, in case you ever need to go back)

3.) Download VirtualHere and pay the one time $25 for your OpenTPCast key(which you will get in email afterward). Open VirtualHere and paste the key you bought into it.

4.) From now on (to start VR) you just start "VirtualHere", wait about 5 seconds until it connects to your TPCast and shows your Vive and controllers "In Use"(if they dont show "in use" you can right click each one and click "Use"). Start SteamVR and play as normal. ("VirtualHere" just takes the place of your old "TPCast" software which connects to the TPCast/OpenTPCast prior to starting SteamVR).


  1. Noticeably better framerate and also no "gray screen" moments during gameplay (which sometimes you may get on the normal TPCast).

  2. Mic works flawlessly!

    Note: Front facing camera still doesn't work, as normal with TPCast

    P.S. Do NOT "Backup and Flash" the original SD Card from your TP Cast! (Save your old one which can be swapped back into it at any time.) The software on your original Mirco SD is specific to your device and can NOT be retrieved/re-loaded to go back.

    The new $5 Class 10 16GB Micro SD is a cheap zero-risk choice and also performs better giving you a better experience, no slow-down of framerate and gets rid of "grayscreens" or loss-signal crashes forever.

    Here's the full guide I used which will walk you through it in no time at all.

    If you have any questions, shoot me a message and I'll help walk you through it.
u/DevinOlsen · 2 pointsr/gopro

So what's the best deal on the camera and memory card? I imagine since the product is brand new it'll be pretty much the exact same from everywhere, right?
I was just going to buy it off Amazon (once it shows up as in stock) with this memory card.

Any reason not to? Is that a good memory card? It's one of the recommended ones on GoPro's website so I figure it's a safe bet.

u/CaspianX2 · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

You should definitely look into a decent MicroSDXC card to store digital games, since many of the games worth playing on Switch are only available on the eShop. Plus, you'll want to take advantage of good sales when they come up.

Be sure to get a card from a manufacturer with a good reputation - there are a lot of phony cards out there that claim to be bigger than they actually are.

Here is a decent 128GB card for $18

Here's a 256GB card for $38

Here's a 512GB card for $71

Hope this helps!

u/CoppingFreeFeels · 28 pointsr/BMW

UPDATE: (no video until I've worked this out)

GO BUY A DASH CAM. THIS IS THE ONE I HAVE AND ITS $21. Just needs an SD card. And an optional better mount. Mine is mounted behind my rearview mirror so you don't notice it and its hardwired in the same spot as my V1 so it automatically turns on with the car and starts recording.

UPDATE (cont.):

I seriously had to take a few hours to cool off and enjoy my vacation. Unfortunately I got back to the hotel after the managers had left.

Just spoke with the front desk manager who runs the show at night while the actual hotel managers are on during the day. He was super professional about it. Albeit, he's completely powerless in the situation but he took control, called everyone and setup a meeting for tomorrow morning.


  • He was completely shocked by the video.
  • I had to tell the valet how to drive the SMG tranny is on tape.
  • When another gentlemen comes up to the car and asks if its his, he responds with a laugh and says "Nope, but its mine for now!"
  • He peels out of the hotel.
  • The car goes airborne twice. Once entering the garage. And again as he goes down a slope and launches off a ramp that meets a right turn entrance a parking level.
  • The wheels are burning at least 3-4 times.
  • The valet laughs at the end to cap it off.

    New things:

  • The valet turned out to be the supervisor.
  • The valet is outsourced by the hotel and carries its own insurance.
  • The other valets all knew about my car.
  • The ramp he flew off, leads to another garage that I was able to park in tonight with another valet. Meaning that, he intentionally launched it off there instead of slowing down.

    Possible Solutions Discussed:

  • Hotel
  • Valet
  • Food/Beverage
  • BMW Inspection
  • Repairs
  • Future Stays

    The conversation went really well but again he's not the person in charge. Anyone capable of doing anything knows about it and will have a night to figure out how to appropriately respond.

    Sorry guys, no video yet until I have an answer. Another update will come tomorrow morning.
u/-Deluded- · 2 pointsr/raspberry_pi

The elinux wiki's list of Verified Peripherals is pretty nice to look at. It has a nice list of things that have been tested to work, and what haven't.

The gist of it is you need a SD Card (Most should work fine) and a Power Supply (micro USB) that supplies 5V / 700mA should be fine for most needs.
More info on power here

If you're going to hook your raspi up to something that draws a fair bit of power you might want to get a Powered USB hub.

> but can anyone give me a comprehensive list of the products (including the prices and specs) that the board needs to function?

Generally comes down to the power supply being $2-$10 maybe (depends what you buy). You can find SD cards easily under $10s as well depending on capacity and speed.

For my setup I have this for a power supply and a 16GB SD card, you could certainly do with less capacity depending on what you're doing.

u/hallflukai · 2 pointsr/canon

Nothing I can think of, it's always worked fine at 1080p 30fps, I even tried resetting my camera settings to make sure it wasn't some obscure settings I forgot about.

I benchmarked the two cards I have on my person right now, This Class 10 Sandisk and This Class 4 Sandisk.

I tested both with a program called USBDeview. The Class 10 card clocked in at 12.65 MB/Sec, and the Class 4 card at 15.51 MB/s. So it looks like you're right and my dumb ass was wrong. Interestingly though, there's obviously a discrepancy between megabits and megabytes but even so, if USBDeview was in megabits the Class 10 should be 80Mb/s and the class 4 should be 32 Mb/s. If it's supposed to be in megabytes the Class 10 should be 10 MB/s and the Class 4 at 4 MB/s. So it seems like both cards aren't in good shape.

I was shooting video yesterday and got a similar issue happening on a friend's SD card (same as my Sandisk class 10) as well though. Maybe something's up with the camera body that's messing up cards?

I didn't know Sandisk had a warranty! I'm going to file a warranty claim and hopefully get a new card out of the deal. If that card shows the same issue then there's something real funky going on.

I was thinking of giving you gold for putting up with me being a dickhead but I know some people would rather that money go to charity. Is there a charity you'd like me to contribute to in your (user)name?

u/Meltdown00 · 1 pointr/UniUK

I would strongly, strongly recommend you have one. You can get by without one, but given the pressure you'll be under the last thing you need is to worry about this as well. Your iPad Air might suffice though, particularly if you have a wireless keyboard for it (Logitech generally have good ones) but in order for a tablet to be the best it can be it needs to support the Apple Pen and I suspect yours doesn't.

You can get a decent laptop for like £300 or less. HP is currently selling their HP Stream 14-cm0038na for £199 (and includes 1 year of Office 365 and 1TB OneDrive storage) which is a good deal. It's not particularly powerful (4GB RAM, and only 32GB eMMC storage but it has an SD/Micro Sd storage slot, and you can get a 256GB MicroSD for £37.98 on Amazon) but you'll be able to browse the web, write papers etc. on it. Or with the Apple Student Discount you could get a new iPad Air for £454.80 (£55.00 AppleCare+, £80.40 for the Pencil)

The main downside of not having your own is you'll be relying on access to the public ones at the university library, and particularly during exam seasons that's very far from guaranteed. Plus in general it's just really useful to have one - there's all sorts of barrier you might come up against with an iPad, especially if the public library ones are in use.

u/Sheilamainbattletank · 2 pointsr/dashcams

Having a CPL filter actually reduces glare on daytime videos but has a slight negative effect on nighttime recording generally. So not having one will actually improve it.

I'd go for a 64 gb card, and spefically a high endurance once like the Sandisk one. They are only a few bucks more than normal ones but apparently better for the cycles that video monitoring systems place on the cards.

As for buying on Amazon vs Viofo, i'd go with the one that's cheaper or has better shipping options. Also, Amazon has easy returns if something happens. Not sure about the Viofo store.

u/iwrestledasharkonce · 4 pointsr/3DS

I just got this one in the mail.


  • reputable brand
  • Unscrupulous brands may sell very small cards and label them as very large cards; some brands also spontaneously dump their information and stop working. Read the reviews! Brands commonly sold in physical stores such as SanDisk and Kensington are usually trustworthy.
  • reputable seller
  • If you're buying on Amazon, make sure it ships from and is sold by Amazon.com, not SUPER AWESOME ELECTRONICS EXPRESS. If you're elsewhere on the web, make sure it's a very reputable online dealer (TigerDirect, newegg) or has a physical store counterpart (BestBuy.com, Radioshack.com). I'd definitely recommend buying online from a web-only retailer; the prices are MUCH better online.
  • 32 GB or lower
  • It's possible to go higher than 32 GB, but you have to do some special formatting tricks and 32 GB is a ludicrous amount of space anyway. Consider that a very large game still only takes maybe 2 GB; you need 16 very large games to fill that puppy. 32 GB is totally fine and pretty cheap.

    Other notes:

    The "class" of the card refers to the read/write speed. Apparently it doesn't make any difference in gameplay and the system itself, but when you transfer files from your SD card to your computer (transferring to a different SD card or uploading a screenshot to Facebook for example) the higher the class, the less you have to wait. I'd recommend a class 4; it seems to be the most common class and works just fine for me.
u/vonsmor · 1 pointr/assholedesign

Pi 4 is overkill, a 2 would work fine, but I'd recommend a Pi 3 for $34 cause it is better hardware and will probably last longer. I tried a PiHole on a Nano just for fun but the PiHole GUI preformed abysmally.

and don't cheap out on the SD card, splurge and get a $5 - 16GB SanDisk or something reputable. I have about 9 active Pi's now running 24/7 for years and the only problems I ever have run into are due to corrupted or failed sd cards, because I used old crap laying around my office, or the cheapo ones they put in those Pi bundles you see on amazon. All the other stuff in the bundles is fine (power, usb cables, hdmi adapters, heat sinks cases, etc) but the cards always blow.

For a Pihole all you should need is a 16GB micro SD card(8 would work, but good companies don't seem to make them anymore) a micro usb cable for power, and an ethernet cable to attach it to your router. If you don't have a laptop or something with a micro SD slot, you may need something like this for the setup process(setting up the sd card is done on a computer)

well it's only 32gbs which is pretty low, It's a U-1 or a C-10 both basically the same thing speed wise. the fastest on the market atm is a U3. It's most likely a Re brand as well, so no real idea what company makes it.

u/commiecomrade · 2 pointsr/raspberry_pi

The Pi doesn't use micro SDHC cards, just SD or SDHC cards (the larger kinds in DSLR's). So unless you have an adapter, I'd get something like this.

I have the exact same Edimax USB adapter, and I can say it installs and runs flawlessly.

My major weak point is electrician stuff but from what I see the battery looks good. 5v is exactly what you need. I haven't tested my model B 2.0 Pi but from what I've heard, it will probably draw about 700mA so you're looking at about 16 hours of life, accounting for realistic expectations.

EDIT: just read the reviews and it seems that it performs well with their Pi. Seems like a good choice!

u/oBLACKIECHANoo · 0 pointsr/photography

Well I think 32gb can have around 2000 RAW files, so 16gb is 1000 and 8gb is 500, maybe take a few pictures in RAW and see what the file sizes are and calculate it, but even if it came out to like 300 photo's on an 8gb card it would still be worth it as I doubt you would shoot that many in a day. But you can get even 32gb sandisk/lexar cards really cheap now so I would upgrade to those if possible, and if you want to do video you would need a decent write speed to keep up with 1080p 60 fps. This card for example is a really fast card with a lot of space and it's pretty cheap.

And if you have he option to shoot JPEG but a button will keep the RAW of that last image, that would be a good option for now, but you may also get photo's which you think aren't so great at the time but turn out good and then you may not have the RAW for it, which is why even a 16gb card would be good as that would be more than enough space for 1-2 days of taking a lot of pictures.

A good memory card always helps, e.g. this, that's big enough for approx. 1.1k shots at max quality on my d3300.

Also a remote shutter is useful if you have a tripod, or you just want to set the camera down and pose, the amazon basics model works great for me, here it is.

Those are two cheap essentials for me.

u/chriskmee · 1 pointr/GearVR

This is the one that comes with the S8 (at least I am pretty sure). Only one picture that has speed, and the read/write looked like it maxed at 92/85. One review mentioned around mentioned 82/74, another said 85/72.

I saw one review that mentioned this generation had better read/write than older ones, so your opinion might be based on previous generations of the card?

edit: I would test it myself, but I honestly wouldn't trust my SD card hub plugged into a USB hub plugged into my PC to be the best test bench.

I have a 128GB Jet Drive in my 2011 256GB MacBook Air. Seems to work great. I have all my home video on it and Backblaze is backing both my regular SSD and the Jet Drive because it is always mounted. Music and Photos on the SSD and the home video on the Jet Drive. I wanted to be sure they all the music was in one place only, all the photos are in one place only, and all the video was in one place only for organization purposes. Seems to be working great. Backblaze backs up anything new each time I open my laptop and am connected to the internet and I also occasionally do a backup to an regular external drive. I want to buy an external SSD though because these regular ones seems to be acting funny after a few years. Which is to be expected I guess. But, I would like something a little less failure prone.

Viofo A129 with rear camera is $200 all in with hardwire kit and is one of the better, cheaper cameras out there (Includes CPL filters to reduce glare). You can read license plates with it and it doesn't get as susceptible to heat distortion like other cameras do. Also, get a High Endurance SD Card that can handle high temperatures.

I have the A119V2 and it's pretty great so far - I wish I had actually waited for the A129 to come out because it has Wi-Fi to download videos direct to phone instead of using a computer (i.e. you can show cops the person who hit your car right away or that Biomom was the instigator instead of fiddling with a USB adapter or plugging it into a computer or looking at it on the 1" screen.)

u/spyder93090 · 3 pointsr/gopro

Get a Class 10 MicroSDHC, the Class 10 is the important part; this is the speed at which the memory card can read & write. Too slow (a lower class) and it won't be able to keep up with the HD video that your camera throws at it.

I recommend 32GB at the minimum. This will net you about 4.5 hrs at 1080p/30p.

Edit: I personally have the SanDisk 32GB Ultra Class 10 MicroSDHC. Got it on sale at Staples for $15 when I got my H3B. But $22 is still reasonable IMO. Comes with SD adapter.

Edit 2: In reply to Dubkingben's comment. I am on a Hero 3 Black. The highest I have recorded is 1080p 60p with ProTune on on RAW WB and haven't experienced any cutting out, personally. But obviously, if you plan to record in 2.7k+ or any of the higher-res settings, probably best to go with their Extreme series.

Thanks guys.

The Nyko Power grip is an amazing piece of technology. It's a shame that it's so bulky, since it's hard to carry around, but damn, doe it make the Vita a joy to hold. My battery is broken, so it's just a grip right now, but I love the thing.

39.99 USD is a price point I'm more than willing to pay. Anything more, and I'd be hesitant, but the Vita has budget priced games. Plus, I can just resell the games on Amazon when I finish them up, so I don't incur that big of a price to play the game.

Memory cards are a ripoff, there's no getting around that. Even though I got a 16 GB card for 30 USD at Best Buy, it's still a ripoff, considering how a 32 GB MicroSD card is 25 USD on Amazon, but it's tolerable at that price. I still don't get what Son'y trying to do with its memory card pricing, since they're not selling the damn things, so a price cut is drastically needed on that.

u/FearlessHS · 1 pointr/techsupport

I don't plan on using it in any devices other than my phone. I'll be downloading a lot of games, movies, and apps. Apps and games don't always like being moved to SD cards.

This is the microSD card I'm looking to get. It seems to be a great card from what I can see. Not the best speed wise, but pretty darn good: https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-128GB-Extreme-microSD-Adapter/dp/B07FCMKK5X/ref=mp_s_a_1_5?keywords=128gb+micro+sd+card&qid=1562706167&s=gateway&sprefix=128&sr=8-5

I bought the Samsung Evo Plus and it gets 90+ MBs sequential reads and 90ish MBs writes. I actually have my steam library on it and it's not much slower to load then my SSD, maybe 2-3 seconds at most. It also doesn't affect FPS that I've noticed. I can't say anything about other micro SD but this one is pretty awesome.

u/iLikeTelevision · 10 pointsr/Filmmakers

Damn, no mics or lights at all??? Ok let me see if I can do this sub 5 since someone who's not me will probably criticize this harshly by saying something like "are you sure you're ready to even buy a camera" or "you need to spend as much on all your equipment as you spend on your camera".

Here goes:

Used Gh4 ~$800-850

Mir 37mm f2.8: ~50

Helios 44-2 58mm f2: ~35

OR Pentax 50mm F1.4: ~55

Used Lumix G 45-200m F4-F5.6 ~200

This tripod - ~$100

Lighting: (Beware this lighting setup is mainly good for controlled, smaller environments. I would get it to practice/learn how to light when you can afford a better kit)

This post about lighting was low budget enough - $150

Black and White Sheets/table cloths: ~35

Work Lights from Home Depot or Walmart (Halogen or LED not clamp): <$30


Zoom H4n: ~$205

Look up how to make a diy boom pole: ~$35

MKE 600 - ~340

Some XLR cables $30

Headphones to check if you're peaking ~150


Oh fuck, idk nothin bout computers, Maybe go to /r/buildapc or go simple:

iMac: ~1700


2 64gb SD Cards ~75

500 gb or 1tb Harddrive: 35/65

Batteries (you could probably get a battery grip, but id get two off brand batteries + a charger for now) ~ 35

ND Filter -


All this is about $4200 and with that extra grand you can buy a b camera like a gh2 or a gh3 or even a g7 all with lenses to boot!

If you have a tripod, you can downscale 4k to 1080 and smooth out all your shots, so no need for a ronin

I am currently using this one . Video quality is pretty good and you can see the footage on its mobile app. It's by Anker.

I would also recommend getting an endurance card rather than normal sd card. Like this one.

u/Quaitgore · 1 pointr/3dshacks

do yourself a favor and replace the card, a faster and bigger card is not expensive at all. I ran into the same problems on my friends o3DS. and after you installed MH4U it will be full. you wont be able to put any other programs or games on it.

I used this 32gb card, and less than a $/GB is pretty cheap even for a higher speed card. unlike a few years ago.

and as far as I can tell the higher speed is a nice boon as well for the old 3DS

I use this one https://www.amazon.com/Ampulla-Cruiser-160%C2%B0Ultra-Dashboard-G-Sensor/dp/B07BBS6MGV/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1539135959&sr=8-3&keywords=ampulla+dash+cam

Sometimes it comes with a 32GB SDCard, if not pick up a Samsung EVO SDCard as these tolerate outdoor conditions better.
I have this one:

Files are stored in two locations on the card EVENTS and VIDEO. The EVENTS folder will contain triggered video such as excessive g-forces from a crash or if you press the lock button to save current running video segment.
The VIDEO is everything else and it loops, oldest video gets overwritten when full.

Be careful with the sensitivity settings, if you have the g-sensor set too sensitive it will overfill the EVENTS folder and will stop recording. Video in this folder is assumed to be critical and it won't overwrite them unless you format the card. This is useful in the event that a crash was so severe that you were transported to the hospital and the car was towed to an impound lot. You wouldn't want the video of the impound lot to overwrite the crash video. The sensitivity setting will depend on what type of vehicle you drive and how smooth the ride is. If it says memory is full after a few days you have it set too high. If you don't have anything important saved it is easy to reformat in the settings menu. Once the sensitivity settings are good you won't see the memory full message.

It's not the best dashcam but it is a good value. I wouldn't have considered getting one if it was more that $100. This one is almost a year old and it has so far survived an Arizona summer.

u/KingdaToro · 2 pointsr/HomeNetworking

Get the cabling done. There's really no substitute. Then, you'll want these...

UniFi Security Gateway router

2-4 UniFi AP AC Lites. Start with one per floor, add more if needed. They work best when ceiling mounted. If you have any devices that support more than two 5 GHz streams, you'll want at least one NanoHD for them to reach full speed.

A switch of some sort, ideally a PoE one. Ubiquiti's is the best choice, but is expensive. You could instead go with a cheaper PoE switch, or even a non-PoE one and use the PoE injectors supplied with the APs to power them. The cheapest way to have both PoE and lots of ports is to get a small PoE switch and a big non-PoE one and connect them together.

Optionally, a Raspberry Pi. This will be for running the UniFi Controller, which manages all the UniFi devices, and Pi-Hole, a whole-network adblocker. You'll need a MicroSD card for it as well.

u/PleaseExplainThanks · 1 pointr/AskPhotography

For the cleaning kit, all she really needs is a rocket blower and some lens pens.

You can also get some disposable wipes.

These Sandisk SD cards should be plenty fast. They're not the absolute fastest that Sandisk makes anymore, which is why they're so cheap. (95mb/s vs 80mb/s. Not that big of a deal.)

Understanding Exposure has got to be the number 1 recommended book for the basics. It's an excellent book, but if she's already getting gigs, maybe she doesn't need it?

For posing, Picture Perfect Posing is the book to get.

This is all the cheap stuff. Lenses, bags, straps, lighting, and the other gear starts to get expensive. What kind of budget are you looking at? I know you said budget isn't an issue... but what does that mean? $500 for everything? $1000? $10,000?

u/cyberrb25 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Possibly a 256gb one is too expensive right now, with the speed expenses needed for playing - at least 60Mb/s, better if 90. I shall recommend you this EVO one (usually the price, but I did see it even under $50).

However, if you can find a 256 good one with price under 70, tell me please.

u/ZacharyRD · 1 pointr/photography

All class 10 SD cards are sufficient for RAW pictures, and if you don't need to shoot in sustained burst mode and don't shoot video, you could get away with class 4/5 as well.

http://www.amazon.com/Transcend-Class-Flash-Memory-TS32GSDHC10E/dp/B003VNKNF0/ is kind of the standard basic memory I recommend everyone get.

And if you can get through 16gb in a day, frankly I recommend shooting less / more carefully, if you're traveling / not on assignment. That's roughly 800 20 MB photos per day; even taking two shots of everything remotely worth taking a picture of, how or why do you do that? Can you walk us through what you're shooting?

u/Dalzeil · 0 pointsr/androidtablets

I do plan to get a Micro SD card. I'm planning on buying this one because of the faster read/write speeds.

I got a decent amount of responses when I cross-posted this thread, look here.

This thread told me for sure that USB-OTG is possible with a USB 2.0 to Ethernet adapter. However, USB 3.0 to Ethernet seems like it isn't possible at the moment. So while you can connect, you'll need an adapter from MicroUSB to USB, like this one, and then you'll need a USB to Ethernet adapter, such as this popular one.

My only concern about it is speed - I'm hazy on the max speeds you would receive via this method.

u/bobstro · 1 pointr/raspberry_pi

I've got Rasbian Lite booting off a Samsung Class 10 Evo Plus microSD card. From initial power-on "rainbow" to an active login prompt is about 26 seconds, 5-7 seconds of which is startup and waiting for a DHCP address for the wifi adapter. This install has minimal services running, although it surely can be optimized a bit further. Not sure how long tunerstudio would take to fire up though. Does it run under a GUI (X Windows)? 10 seconds is pretty quick. How close to that do you need to be?

u/DesignNomad · 1 pointr/gopro

I realize I am a impossibly small sample size, but I haven't had any speed issues with the adapter. I've used them to use my MicroSD cards in my older GoPro cameras, as well as shooting full HD video with my Sony NEX-5R without problems.

I've also been using this card and this card (both class 10) in my Hero2 for years without a single issue.

You could always buy it on amazon, test it out on some sport jumps, and then decide if you can rely on it. If not, send it back to amazon... they have a nice enough return policy that it won't cost you anything.

u/ItsADanThing · 3 pointsr/photography

Those are the "burst speeds" not continuous write speeds. UHS-1 write speed is usually around 40-50 MB/s. But they are pretty cheap, the PNY cards are pretty highly rated and a 64 GB card is about $24 on amazon. UHS-3 cards are quite a bit more expensive but do offer 90+ MB/s write speeds. Sandisk sells a 64 GB card for about $80. Unfortunately I'm pretty sure the camera is limited to 40 MB/s write so these probably wouldn't improve it any.

This chart shows max resolution cameras can record raw at. Only camera capable of 1080p at 24fps continuously is the 5DIII.

u/Master_Dogs · 1 pointr/LGG3

I have a 64GB Sandisk Ultra that works great. I used it in my old phone (Droid Razr Maxx) and then my G3 when I got it on release last July. So it's been working great for the last year or so.

Should be able to get it for around $30-$40.

I really can't wait until the 128GBs come down to this price point in a year or two though - 64GB is enough for most things but load it up with a few movies, some music and a few nandroids and you've pretty much filed it up.

I agree with the Acer Aspire 1. It almost has your minimums. It has 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. You can buy a small SD card for more storage, like this 32 GB SD Card from SanDisk. It will be excellent of general use as you listed.

u/ZyluphixUK · 1 pointr/PleX

You could get a raspberry pi 3+ and a 1 - 2TB 2.5 inch hard drive with a hard drive dock that powers via USB.

If the devices in the household will direct play the files, then the raspberry pi will simply serve as a basic NAS and the 1-2TB hard drive should spin up powered from the dock.

For instance:

Raspberry Pi 3+: £32.47 / $42.46

Memory Card for RPi3: £5.84 / $7.64

USB Enclosure for HDD: £7.65 / $10.00

2TB Toshiba 2.5" Drive: £48.19 / $63.03


You'd be looking at £94.15 / $123.11 (i know it will cost different in USA but simply using exchange rate conversion).


It would also take up less space than a single DVD and would possibly hold 71 REMUX 1080p movies. However, you could go for lower quality "1080p" versions and get alot more on there.


I have some spare RPi3's and the above to test this on your behalf :)


Edit: However if you arnt too bothered about size, then buying a second hand PC would be significantly better but the above purely factors in the smallest possible form factor!

u/superchiller · 1 pointr/drones

Is it a regular SanDisk micro SD card? If so you should consider a faster card like the SanDisk Extreme:

"4K UHD Ready

With UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) and Video Speed Class 30 (V30) ratings (3), the SanDisk Extreme microSDXC UHS-3 Card lets you capture uninterrupted 4K UHD and Full HD video (4). This makes it ideal for recording outdoor adventures, weekend trips, or sporting events without skipping frames."

I'm assuming your card is UHS Speed Class 1 (U1) and Video Speed Class 10 (V10), which are the lower levels common on garden variety SanDisk cards. Here's the type I'm talking about on Amazon:

u/finaleclipse · 2 pointsr/photography

Yes, you'll want to pick up a few decent memory cards. I'd run into issues with some of my old cards which I had no idea were too slow and my video was randomly shutting off without me knowing. I personally recommend SanDisk Extreme Pro cards which are about as fast as you can go for SD cards that your camera supports. Ever since switching, I no longer had any video issues.

As far as batteries are concerned, unless you're doing a ton of video you'd be surprised how long a single battery will last. My 60D was able to shoot a day-long even with over 1000 shots and it still had a good amount of juice in it. If you want extras, you effectively have two options: official Canon batteries which are expensive, or cheaper 3rd party batteries which aren't nearly as pricey. Personally I buy 3rd party Wasabi Power batteries and of the 7 I've purchased, only one has ever failed me and I suspect bringing the camera into some extreme cold this past winter might have had an impact on that. Even so, for the price of one Canon battery I can get four Wasabi Power, so I generally just go that route.

u/jackokoTV · 2 pointsr/3DS

u/bitesizethumb · 2 pointsr/SonyAlpha

Video falls under the V category of card ratings. In this case, the A7riii will only shoot 4K at 30fps therefore UHS-1 rating will do fine. I recommend the Sandisk Extreme Pro. It offers a v30 rating and 95MB/s write speed which really helps with the new buffer speeds of the mark3's for photography. I've always used this and fine that it's the best bang for buck.

u/Sarstan · 7 pointsr/cedarrapids

Speaking of dash cam, I highly recommend this one! I've had it two years now and it works great, hot summer days and blistering cold winters. The quality is 1080p, front AND back at 30fps. But don't skimp on the memory card. I got this beauty and haven't had a complaint since my last card, which was cheaper, went out on it. The only issue is it will hold 10 hours of footage. But you see everything in these recordings!

The D750 has a better Autofocus module, tilting screen, better video, better battery life, and a bunch of minor advantages. Image quality is indistinguishable.

The 24-70 is a top-of-the-line zoom lens. It will work the same on both bodies (as will all other lenses to my knowledge).

Batteries are included, but you need to get an SD Card. I'd recommend the Sandisk Extreme Pro 95MB/s.

u/talltexas · 1 pointr/mac

I would do both, assuming your have a Macbook, not an iMac. A SD card similar to this to keep essential files on for when you are away from your work station, but I also would also get an external hard drive to save everything else and to keep a backup at home. Amazon warehouse deals offers 128gb expansion cards for around $56 (cheaper if your can deal with a smaller one), and a whole selection of external hard drives for $50-$60. However, if you want to choose one with the less hassle would be the SD card, assuming you have a model which supports this.

u/whaddadoo · 2 pointsr/3DS

That seems pretty expensive for a class 1 32 gb card, I just picked up a class 4 32 gb from Amazon for ~$19 (this one, to be exact: http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Class-Flash-Memory-SDSDB-032G-AFFP/dp/B007JRB0RE/) It's worked perfectly for me. Class 4 is really all you need if you're just using it for gaming, classes really only matter if you're using it for something like photography and want to take super fast high action shots, then you might want a class 10, but class 4 is all you need for a 3ds.

On my Note 3 I originally bought a SanDisk Ultra 64 GB microSDXC Class 10 UHS-1. Had nothing but problems with it randomly "ejecting", even thought it was solidly seated.

So, get the Samsung card and save yourself some pain.

u/jason254 · 2 pointsr/JusticePorn

I got this:



The F500L works well enough and is a highly popular choice. I only spent around $110 with shipping. Which I think is highly worthwhile investment. The only caveat is the power cable that came with it caused me a lot of radio interference. I got another power cable and it works much better now. It is a DC plug to mini usb so it was not hard to find a different replacement. (I am using one from a garmin gps, but I'm sure you could get one at bestbuy).

u/TheDopeGodfather · 1 pointr/gopro

Make sure you're using an SD Card that is on their list of approved models. I was having trouble with my H7B freezing, not turning on, and difficulty transferring media, but I had a very high quality SD card so I didn't think that was the issue. Finally dropped some money on a card that was on their list, and now my camera works perfectly. This is the one I got. For $25 bucks it's a pretty cheap way to figure out if that's your problem.

u/purselane · 1 pointr/Cameras
  • 64Gb SDXC card is required for XAVCS @ full bitrate

  • The RX100's buffer is not too terrible for a compact with a ~10 shot capacity, but beyond that you're basically going to get 1 shot a second until the buffer clears. There's also a limit to how fast the camera writes to the card, and anything faster than a UHS-1 card may also slow down writing speed. So you want fast, but not too fast.

  • "Up to" = standard industry talk for "never gets this fast IRL lol"

    The Sandisk Extreme Pro satisfies all of these requirements. The Extreme Plus is actually more performance right-sized, but it costs barely less than the Pro so there's no point.

    There's no performance demerit in going for the Micro SD version with an adapter by the way if you intend to swap images physically between tablets or phones with these slots.
u/GenericUsername256 · 2 pointsr/PanasonicG7

UHS-I U3 is the recommended SD card spec. I'm not seeing U3 anywhere on there, so you might want to go with something else to be safe.

u/4kVHS · 1 pointr/GalaxyS9

My AT&T S9 was upgraded to Androrid Pie two weeks ago. Last week I was on a business trip and took over 500 images while away. Out all of those images, these four were randomly mixed throughout. They are at different times, and even different orientations, but all the exact same file size, so I know there is no chance of recovery. Has anyone seen anything like this before? Since upgrading to Pie I feel like the camera is very laggy, I often would push the shutter button several times until it seemed like it would actually take the picture. I also recall once where I took a picture from the lock screen and it showed the preview in the little circle, but when I tapped it to bring it up full size, it gave me a Toast notification that said something about no pictures have been taken, even though I could see the thumbnail. When I went to the gallery, it was not there, not even a green image in its place. Could this be a bug with the Android Pie update, or an issue with my recently purchased SD card?

u/GredaGerda · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch


This is the best value MicroSD Card in terms of memory and read/write speed.


This is a VERY fast MicroSD card you can find (128GB), but is more expensive.

u/BingoMcFriskin · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

This (and a small socket wrench) was literally all I needed:


It has adapters for most dashcams, and the included wire is thin and long enough to tuck above the windshield and down the left pillar, away from the airbags, then towards the door.

If you open your driver door and look at the side of the dash, you'll see the cover you need to pop off. Use the little spudger that comes with the kit, and it comes right off (pops back in easily later).

Take out the small drawer next to the steering wheel by opening it, squeezing the sides, then pulling. Voila, fusebox. Thread the wire through the opening in the side and into the fusebox area.

There is a yellow 20amp fuse that is linked to the 12v accessories (cigarette lighter, etc). I pulled this one out, plugged in the piggyback fuse from the kit, and put the yellow fuse into the piggyback (the kit comes with instructions on this).


In this pic, it's the yellow 20amp fuse in the lower right:



Ater doing the piggback, you just need to connect the ground. There are some hex bolts nearby, just unscrew one and attach the ground cable, then tie up the rest of the wire and tuck it away. Pop the cover back on, and you are good!

u/Ishouldnt_be_on_here · 1 pointr/nesclassicmods

My guess would be getting a new sd card. The size isn't the problem, but the speed probably is. Look for the circle with a number inside it on the card.

See this chart to see what I'm talking about On top of that, if the card is old and has been used often it may have degraded and not perform as well.

I'd look for at least class 10/UHC1. UHC 3 would probably meet any demands you'd ever need for your SNES. They also have A1 and A2 classes meant for Android phones, but they'd work just as well for your use.

SD cards are super cheap nowadays, and you'll get way more memory with more performance out of it, for a fraction of what you paid for that one I bet.

This one is 16GB A1 for $6…!

I'd personally go 64gb since you can record continously for up to 30 hours before overwriting (depending on fps settings). See this link for breakdown on recording times:


I have these two and they are great. I prefer the Samsung though since I believe they make better cards than Sandisk. Also, you will need to use the blackvue windows viewer app to format to FAT32 before using.

Btw, I have done some testing with Atto disk benchmark. The EVO+ 256MB is faster than my Samsung PRO 64MB card. EVO+ writes at ~89MB/s, compared to 79MB/s for the PRO card. Both are UHS 3

It would also prove whether lanes were jumped or not! This is the one I have. Took me about 20 minutes to install. Super easy! No, it doesn't upload automatically or use data. You put a micro sd in it. The card I have will hold 16hrs of video. Once the 16hrs is reached, it starts recording over the oldest footage. So you will always have the last 16hrs of footage available to you.

u/dochardware · 2 pointsr/3DS

this one works perfectly. Some are probably gonna come and say get a Class 10, but it honestly makes no difference. the games don't load any faster so you can save yourself $2-3 dollars. Class 4 is what the system came with anyway

That's the one I bought off amazon a while back and it's been working fine and is a great price. If you're using a 2gig stick it ain't going to cut it for smash.

I have a pretty good one, learned a lot from a website known as dashcamtalk.com. Here are the details:

  1. Ordered the DVR-007 dashcam from the following ebay listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=310395030964 This seller is recommended by dashcamtalk and I didn't have any issues with them.

  2. It requires an SD card. From my research, I found out that the reliability of the dashcam depends on the quality & type of SD Card. Thus, this is the SD card I purchased: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003VNKNF0/ref=pe_309540_26725410_item
u/Takumivk · 5 pointsr/photography

I recommend amazon also. I bought a 16GB Sandisk for £15 last night. However if that is still out of your budget. I do also recommend the Transcend 16GB Class 10. I used one of these for about 3 years until I lost it without any failures and with good read/write speeds.

u/kabbage123 · 3 pointsr/GH5

My v30 Sandisk Extreme Pros stop recording at around 20 seconds when shooting pretty much any All-I 400 mbps modes. This was expected, but I was hoping to be surprised.

Conversely, the v30 cards were able to do 6k 4:3 Anamorphic mode without any issues thus far! It's LongGOP and only 200mbps. This means open gate at 6k at 4:3 for most shooters who are on a v30 card.

These are good, reasonably fast, come with a lifetime warranty and are the most popular SD card on Amazon. The 16gb version is under $10

u/TemptedTemplar · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

For affiliate links on amazon, "ref=" is the start of the affiliate link, so it and everything after it is useless.

So your link looks like;


And you can delete "ref=psdc_3015433011_t1_B06XFHQGB9"

Back to the matter at hand, I wouldnt recommend the one via the link due to it not being sold by Samsung or Amazon. Amazon is rife with fakes and knock off cards so you want to avoid third party sellers whenever possible.

This Samsung EVO Select card is the same capacity and transfer speeds but has a lower minimum write speed, which isnt a huge issue because youre just using it with the Switch and not 4k video or intensive files.

Also, its sold directly from Amazon so you have the best possible recourse if it dosent work as intended.

I know SD's are pretty unreliable, but I wonder how one of these would run Linux? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007NDL54C/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

u/DavidXGA · 4 pointsr/applehelp

The best way is probably half-length SD cards that are designed to fit in your SD card slot and not stick out, so that you can leave them in there permanently.

You can also get a thing which does the same thing for microSD cards: https://www.amazon.com/Aluminum-microSD-Adapter-MacBook-Non-Retina/dp/B00WQVK754/

u/Reeces_Pieces · 4 pointsr/cemu

Moving the saves over is pretty easy. You'll need to softmod your WiiU. It's only temporary and very easy to do. You just need an SD Card 32GB or less and a USB to SD Card adapter.

If you have games that you want play online, I'd also recommend dumping: your files needed for online, mii heads, and friends list app while you're at it.

Here's a video guide for that.

Now after having watched that video you should know what I'm talking about going forward:

You just need to open the homebrew launcher with the browser exploit and then launch 'Mocha CFW'. Then you'll be back at the homebrew menu. Now, launch 'SaveMii Mod' and then you can use that to dump all your savedata to the SD Card. Then you can plug the SD Card into your PC with a USB to SD Card Adapter and move the files into Cemu.

Here's a video showing how to use SaveMii Mod (start from 2:03).

Just remember to launch 'Mocha CFW' before launching 'SaveMii Mod'.

Then (obviously) you need to dump your game(s) from your WiiU to get them on your PC.

You can dump them with FTPiiu everywhere.

The 00050000 folder stores installed games.
The 0005000E folder stores installed updates.
The 0005000C folder stores installed DLC.

If it's a disc game, then you'll need to use DDD. Here's a video guide showing how to use it. Select the disc option.

But you'll still need to dump the DLC and updates with FTPiiu everywhere.

u/azngamer101 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Going with a 256gb card I like my storage. Im hoping somehow we can connect an external hard drive to the switch like you could with the wii.

u/Mr-Thumpasaurus · 7 pointsr/pihole

If you're really worried about reliability, treat yourself to the SanDisk Ultra 16GB card. It's a pretty big splurge, more pricey than cheaper cards, and way overkill for Pi-hole, but that's the price you pay for peace of mind.


Your wallet may never recover

u/eeyore134 · 2 pointsr/3DS

The card that comes in your 3DS is a speed class 10 (the higher the number, the faster the data transfer). I got this one from Amazon in the mail just yesterday and it is working just fine. Seems to have gone up a tad in price since I got it, but it's also only $25 for a Class 10 32GB card. You can find cheaper but I know Transcend works so I went for that one.

All I did to get it to work was pop my old one into my computer with one of these and copy the files into a folder. I put the new card into my computer, copied the files from the folder to the new card, put it in my 3DS and it worked just like it did before with all my downloads intact.

If you want 64GB look through the ones they offer that are Class 10 and go for the cheaper options. It's silly to pay a ton of money for a memory card if you don't have to.

u/ednichol · 2 pointsr/shanghai

u/McDuble · 1 pointr/IdiotsInCars


these are probably the best cards currently. they aren't a lot more expensive than other regular cards, but are designed specifically for long term recording. sandisk and transcend cards are not recommended anymore. They might have their own high endurance cards for dash cams too though, but these samsung ones just dropped in price few months ago and are a good deal.

u/stan_qaz · 2 pointsr/raspberry_pi

I'd go with a good quality SD card, aside from problems caused by an inadequate power supply that seems to be the biggest failure point. I recommend a pair of SansDisk 16 GB cards, one to run and one as a backup. Little is saved by going smaller, slower or cheaper.



Instead of an external USB drive how about a piggyback M.2 drive? I have this one and love it.


Pick a M.2 card size to meet your needs.



Several folks make a fancy case to fit your Pi and this type drive or you can do as I did and just put it in a dog-bone style case with slightly longer threaded studs.

u/MarkHawkCam · 2 pointsr/gopro

The head strap ontop of goggles isn't a fun choice while snorkeling. It doesn't come down far enough with the goggles in the way to really stay on tight. It also feels uncomfortable have all that pressure on your head. When I went we used our XShot 2.0 pole and it turned out great. Just wash the pole and case with fresh water and dry after snorkeling. There are better options but for your first time out I'd say start small and buy more if you think you need it the second time out.

You wont need a red filter but you'll see improvements however I cant think of any manufacturers who have on for the Hero3+ case.

You could also get the Bobber mount so it'll never sink.

Also this is there SD cards I use

That about sums it up of what I've read and watched about Z3. I use the Samsung Pro 64gb SD card with 90 read and 80 write speeds. Its pretty fast. But having more internal memory will help with installing bug file apps and games.

Depends on your microSD card reading speed. You'll want to look at the high-range ones to read large 1080p / 3D movies. Here's an example of a class 10 straight from Amazon for reference. Otherwise some of the lower end microSD cards, while they can hold a lot, are not going to read a 1080p file fast enough to make it run clearly or well. Here's an example of a class 4 which will not run those files well.

First of all, let me thank you for such a detailed and well thought out post!

So I've got this charger. It's a new charger, cable all looks good and is about 1.5m long.

This SD Card

This cooling/case I have unplugged the fan, it's too loud. I'm looking for a quiet fan, but the heatsinks seem to have been adequate for now, I think.

My external drive is self-powered via AC, although it is not the best drive, it does work. I can access and play all of the media just fine, it's just that last stage of scanning the library where it all goes wrong. I forgot to mention that when you power back up, it has updated the library with the new media!

I'm currently moving a file over to /storage and I will try scanning library without the external drive plugged in to see if it makes a difference.

I did have a fan plugged in, but it was too noisy so it's out for now. I haven't overclocked the Pi myself, and a arm_freq gives me 1400.

I did think about overvolting. It's something to explore if all else fails.

I'm on the LibreELEC 9.0.1.

So, it doesn't crash when the external drive isn't plugged in and scanning the library, but there is only 1 media file to find.

u/Helmet_Hawk · 1 pointr/funny

I got a $20 32GB Micro SD card to go with it to give me a little over 8 hours of footage at 720p but the camera can also record in 1280p.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Only if you spend a lot of time looking through pictures on the camera. Your best option is to buy a good sized memory card, and just wait till you get back to your computer to sort through and delete your pictures. I have a 16gb memory card like this one and it holds more than enough pictures for me. I lost my connector cable that hooks the camera up to the computer for about a year, and in that time I had accumulated somewhere around 600 pictures that were just sitting on the camera, and the memory card still had plenty of space.

As far as camera bags go, I think I have this one.

Also what's the consensus on those beginner's bundles? I found one by Sony that has a couple extra batteries, tripod, case, etc. for a decent price but I dunno if it'd be better to just buy the items separately.

u/Kerafyrm · 1 pointr/Android

The HTC Evo 4G LTE is a great phone with the best display right now (same as the HTC One X). I'd recommend getting a 32 GB or 64 GB to throw in there on top of the 16 GB you already have:

32 GB microSD, Class 10 - $26.49

64 GB microSD, Class 10 - $54.51

The only drawback to the HTC Evo 4G LTE (other than being a Sprint exclusive) is the lack of a replaceable or extended battery. If you are a very heavy user, a PowerSkin case would add about 1500 mAh of battery life, but extended battery cases are NOT known for their reliability.

u/Reebzy · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

You're referencing the D5833, which is the asian market version. This model is a D5803. You're going to want a D5803 for full LTE compatibility in the US. The US version bottoms out at $510, at best. Since there is still a wait list, they bounce between $510 and $600 based on availability. Also, even if I ditch all the accessories, the two-year warranty can only be purchased from Sony direct.

If you get a lower quality, non-brand microSD card, then sure I suppose. Here is the card that this phone comes with (it's dropped $4.95 since my purchase...) -- http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IVPU88U/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

You can try using one of the "industrial" or other high endurance varieties of SD card to hopefully get a much longer life. Most of the big names have a line (or two) of cards that are good for this and they're not too much more than the regular cards. Sandisk has these:

You can virtually use any micro SD card whether it's HC of XC and 4, 16, 32, 128,256, (GB) etc. However anything over 32GB or any XC card requires formatting. Your safest bet is anything at 32GB or below and HC. Highly recommend a Samsung Evo 32GB. Can be purchased for about $20 here :

Thunderbolt 2 to HDMI cable or adapter will help should you ever want to hook it up to a projector or tv. You can usually get a combo one that also includes DVI and sometimes even VGA.

I also recommend a USB 3.0 hub, ideally with ethernet built in to kill two birds with one stone.

Finally, if this is a 13", a slim SD card that doesn't need to be removed is nice for expanding storage.

If you ever need to do a microphone input, I also suggest a cheap USB soundcard.

u/hendusoone · 2 pointsr/Android

Android is capable of much higher than class 6 speeds. Android itself can read and write as fast as the hardware will allow (that is, the SD card itself AND the phone's SD slot). So, it depends on which SD card technology is in your phone.

For exmaple: I've got a 64GB Sandisk UHS-1 microSD in my T-Mobile G2. The phone itself only claims to support SDHC, but this is clearly a SDXC card. Works flawlessly - I can use all of the space, and I get a read* speed of 10+MB/s and a write speed of 30+MB/s according to benchmarks.

So, when buying a SD card for your phone, do a bit of research to see what other people with your same phone are able to run. The published specs aren't always completely accurate.
