64Gb SDXC card - Less Than Fifty Cents a Gig
Posted By: eddaytona, 04-05-2014, 11:11 PM

Komputerbay 64GB SDXC Secure Digital Extended Capacity Speed Class 10 600X UHS-I Ultra High Speed Flash Memory Card 40MB/s Write 90MB/s Read 64 GB Komputerbay 64GB SDXC Secure Digital Extended Capacity Speed Class 10 600X UHS-I Ultra High Speed Flash Memory Card 40MB/s Write 90MB/s Read 64 GB: Computers & Accessories

Other sizes at comparable prices.

I've been using this off-brand for a few years with no problems what-so-ever. Each one (about five now; first a 16 gig just as a test and then 32 and 64 gig class 10) have been totally reliable. I see memory cards regularly offered up in the Price Watch section claimed as good deals but in comparison are not that great. Fifty cents a gig is the new paradigm. Anything more is overpriced.

I don't think I would touch this no matter how cheap it was, stick to a reputable brand.

K-5 can use the card with firmware upgrade but you do not get the UHS class speed increase. Komputer Bay does have a straight up Class 10 64gig card and they throw in a card reader for $34. K-5ii takes SDXC. K-R takes them with firmware upgrade. K-3 takes SDXC as well.

K-5 Firmware Update:
Changes to V1.02
• Compatible with SDXC memory card.
* Transfer rate is not compatible with UHS speed class.
• All ISO sensitivity setting can be used on Bulb mode.
• Improved functional sequence for Contrast AF and improved total speed until in focus.

Newegg frequently has deals on various SD cards. I just received a Patriot 64G SDXC UHS-1 card that I'd ordered for 29.99 with free shipping. There is also a $10.00 mail-in rebate which means it ens up at 19.99. There are a couple of negative reviews for this card so they may be clearing them out. The mail-in rebates are a bit of a hassle though and I see this card currently has .99 cents shipping. Sign up for their email and watch for the deals on SD cards.
