4K shooting needs a high-speed memory card

With the development of technology, video shooting requires not only sound and image, but also high-definition picture, which is convenient to play on the super-large screen and projector, as well as later editing. With the continuous improvement of specifications, 720P and 1080P are out of date.

4K shooting has gradually become the mainstream

4K resolution is 4096×2160 pixel resolution, which belongs to ultra-high definition resolution, and its data storage capacity will be greatly increased accordingly. Especially for the 4K video with high bit rate, it has higher requirements for photographic equipment and memory cards.

4K shooting needs a high-speed memory card
When choosing 4K camera equipment, many users tend to compare with many stores before buying, but they often ignore the selection of memory cards, thinking that it is enough to select memory cards of large capacity. However, if you choose a wrong memory card, there will be many problems, such as:
1.Video corruption can cause the captured 4K video to generate damaged or unrecognizable files finally, which may also reduce the quality of video to match the speed of flash cards.
2.Long video cannot be saved. When the writing speed of the camera is higher than that of the memory card, once reaching the speed limit of the flash card, the camera will be suspended and the video recording will suddenly end.
3.Because of the long buffer time, many camera devices have built-in storage space as a cache. When the writing speed of the memory card is low, and the cache is full due to the large amount of real-time video file data stored by the camera, the camera will be in a state of panic until the memory card has finished storing the file.
4.Continuous shooting mode fails. Many cameras have a continuous mode and can take a series of pictures with one click, which allow users to capture fast-moving events or objects, such as pets or children. However, the slow writing speed of the memory card will cause the failure of continuous shooting mode.

Therefore, no matter 4K shooting or SLR shooting, it is best to choose the high-speed memory card. At present, it is the most suitable choice that use the Kingston Canvas series.
