Memory Cards–“If It’s Too Good To Be True…”

Counterfeit SD cards

I’ve always used SanDisk cards and never, ever had a problem in the 5 or 6 years I’ve being using digital equipment.

Also, I generally get the highest rated cards in terms of speed and bit rate for the equipment I’m using.

One is tempted when making SD card purchases to find a really good deal.

BUT, if what you find seems too good to be true, it probably isn’t true.

Here’s a story about SD card counterfeiting

As you will see, the counterfeited cards look identical. And where you’ll find these great deals is on eBay, Amazon or similar sites.

  1. Thank you. I only buy SanDisk when I can. Try and use a supplier that I think I can trust.
    This is a good heads up. Your idea’s and approach has supported where I was going and
    is important to us. With an Sony a7s, X70, AX100, some good lens some budget cine I have reinvented myself. Was on shoot last week and the movi gimbal stabilizer took more time setup
    then anything else. I am a producer that is now a run & gun shooter and content creator.
    You have validated what I was doing and you work in communicating creative style and approach in really great. Tom
