Is this WR? I don't see it in the description, but the description is vague.

Weather Resistant? An SD card? Not that I know of.

For what's it worth. I've (actually my wife) washed and dried a few SD cards and they thankfully still work!

I've only done that once (on my own) but with the same result but try not to make it a regular practice.

Even had USB flash jump drives go through the same process and find them in three pieces in the dryer. Snap back together and still work! Good thing my camera's won't fit in my jean's pockets !

Sandisk Ultra and Extreme lines are waterproof, shockproof, x-rayproof and temperature tolerant to -13F.

I've liked Lexar cards in the past, but have not bought any newer ones lately because, as far as I knew, Sandisk were the only WR ones. I might like to try a Lexar again if it were sealed.

Thanks, I did not know that. I have several of each type San Disk, how did I know know that? That makes them the perfect complement to our WR K cameras!

That isn't a very good price for a relatively slow speed card according to its specs:

Write Speed 22 MB/s Maximum
Read Speed 30 MB/s Maximum

Your device may or may not be able to make use of the faster write speed, but if you use a ext. USB3 card reader, a faster read speed will be appreciated.

In my new videocam (a Panasonic HC-V750) I use a PNY Elite Performance 64GB card ("90MB/s"). I got this cheaply on Amazon and originally used it as a backup for a Sandisk 64GB ExtremePro in my Pentax K-3 (has two SD slots).

Amazon.com: PNY Elite Performance 64GB High Speed SDXC Class 10 UHS-1 Up to 90MB/sec Flash Card - P-SDX64U1H-GE: Computers & Accessories

The 64GB card is currently $28.99 USD. I'm in Australia and PNY shipped to me. (Many Amazon sellers won't.)

Using H2testw in an ext. USB3 card reader I measured the performance of this card :

Warning: Only 61086 of 61087 MByte tested.
Test finished without errors.
You can now delete the test files *.h2w or verify them again.
Writing speed: 61.2 MByte/s
Reading speed: 82.5 MByte/s
H2testw v1.4

These measurements are in true MB (1,048,576 bytes). If using 1 MB = 1,000,000 bytes, as the HDD and memory storage industries do, these results would be expressed as:

Writing speed: 64.5 MByte/s
Reading speed: 86.5 MByte/s


The PNY has a lower write speed than the Sandlisk 64GB Extreme Pro which I measured in true MB (1,048,576 bytes):

Extreme Pro 64GB ("95MB/s"):
Writing speed: 81.3 MByte/s
Reading Speed: 83.8 MByte/s

In 1 MB = 1,000,000 bytes:

Writing speed: 85.2 MByte/s
Reading Speed: 87.9 MByte/s


The Extreme Pro's write speed performance is impressive. But it's unlikely that the HC-V750 can make use of the greater write speed here (it's not a 4K camera).

BTW, the methodology of accurately measuring the time taken by a SD card in the K-3 & K-5, and the results are described in these 3 msgs:

Actually you can get the Sony 600x 64 gig card at B&H for $34.95 until December 27. This is 95MB/s read and 45 MB/s write.

The 633x 64 gig card is on sale until then too too for $59.95. These are 95MB/s read and 90 MB/s write.


The 633x 32 gig card is on sale for $29.95.
