I was looking for another SDHC to replace one that I lost at an event. I do both photography and videography with my Canon 60D. The card prior to this one was also a Class 10, but the write speeds were not fast enough for video recording. It would stop recording and I hated it. It was unreliable even when the brand was. Perhaps I bought the wrong type.

When I saw this SDHC on sale, I jumped on it. It was double the size of the one I lost, it had faster write speeds, and it was cheaper! But the best thing about all that was the fact that B&H carried it! I have bought things in the past with them and so I knew how fast and safely my package would arrive.

Now I don't have to worry about my Canon 60D stopping in the middle of recording after a some seconds. I can focus on directing and getting the shot right than worry about anything interrupting.

The only thing I regret was buying only one when it was on sale. But I know for a fact that I'll buy more and in the same place. This site is my go-to for all my photo and video equipment.

Highly recommended!

We got one of this memory cards around eight months ago. About two months ago the memory card reader was having a lot of difficulties reading the card and latter on the camera couldn't read it.So we went online to chat with Sony Customer Service. They asked us to call a number. After nine transfers and two hours on the phone they offered us a 50% discount on a new memory card. They made it sound like they were doing us a favor offering the card for $40 not realizing that B&H sells the card for a retail price of [$] (no discounts).We should have never been on the phone with them for two hours for a [$] product. Our time is more valuable than thatWe have never had issues like this with Lexar and SanDisk.Two out of two times we have called Sony's Customer Service and have had a really bad experience. There is no point buying products from a company that doesn't value their customers.

    Comments about Sony 32GB UHS-I SDHC Memory Card (Speed Class 3):

    I use this in my Pentax K-50 for photography. It's fast and reliable: I have yet to have a single problem with it in over a year of shooting. I'm not sure I'd use it for video work, but it performs well enough for stills. It is a little slow to write after a burst, but still only takes a couple of seconds to clear the buffer.

    Comments about Sony 32GB UHS-I SDHC Memory Card (Speed Class 3):

    Sony wants you to keep buying all their products. They make a new video format, the XAVC codecs, and make all UHS-I cards not compatible. You have to purchase their SDXC UHS-3. I understand that higher speed if I'm shooting 4K, but not regular HD.

          Comments about Sony 32GB UHS-I SDHC Memory Card (Speed Class 3):

          I got a couple of these on sale, since they were just as cheap as much slower cards. I haven't really had a chance to test the speeds on it, because my laptop doesn't have a USB 3.0 port, but I can get 55 MB/s with the built in SD slot, which is faster than any other card I have, so that's good enough for me! I do have a Lexar Professional 32GB 600x card, and it is nearly as fast in the same SD slot, so I think the bottleneck is the slot, not the card.

              Used as a back-up card on my D800 for two years and had no problem yet. It seems durable and write speed enough for single shots. Read/transfer speed is about 90 mb/s with 3.0 card reader.
              The one thing i don't like there is no jewel case with this card.
              If you don't need faster cards this may be a good option.

                  I've only had a chance to use this once so far, but it's good to see the photos uploading so quickly now that I'm using RAW files, this used to take quite some time and now they tick over around 1 photo per second. Big improvement. Of course, technology being what it is, I assume within the next couple of years that will sound archaic, but for now I'm a happy girl.

                  I'm using it with a Sony NEX-FS100UK Camcorder.

                  The high sustained read/write speed provides for full use of this remarkable camera.

                  For the price, this is a fine bit of memory technology that seems to hold up well.

                      Recently ordered 2 of these cards and have used other cards of this model reliably in the past. One worked but the 2nd one failed during my first shoot giving a media error warning in a Sony EX3 during the shoot and footage could not be restored in camera or with data recovery software. Over an hour of a non-recreatable event was lost.

                      From now on I will do a test shoot up to the media's capacity with all new cards before using on a real project.

                      I may be just unlucky to get a bad card out of the package, but these seem to be bargain priced now and I wonder if Sony is using cheaper, less reliable Flash in these cards.

                                I use this card to record video to a DSLR. I use SanDisk, PNY, and pretty much every other card there is.
                                They all work pretty much the same, especially when you are up at 90 MB/S. It doesn't come with one of those plastic cases, but we all lose those eventually anyway.
                                This is the cheapest 32GB card I have found with these transfer rates, and it works as expected.

                                  Keeps up with my Sony a6000 and Nikon D90. Minimum 30MB/s works great!
