After a day of shooting intense action video on your GoPro or drone-mounted camera, nothing would be worse than discovering your video footage has been destroyed because of damage to the microSD card containing the footage.

Action camera recordings take place in wet, dirty and extreme temperature conditions. Clearly there is a need for confidence in the reliability of the SD card recording media, and Kingston Technologies has targeted their new Action Camera SDCAC/64GB microSD card directly at this kind of usage, and thrown in high data rate recording for 4K video as well.

In this article for Benchmark Reviews we’ll look at the construction and performance of the 64GB version of the Kingston SDCAC microSD and see how it performs with speed benchmark and environmental testing.

    So do they even have any cards out that are capable of 60fps 4K.?

    Thanks for your comment. It depends on the 4K recording codec used by the camera.

    The Kingston card is rated for 45MB per second which is fast enough for 4K60 on a GoPro. In fact, cards rated for V3 (30MBs) will work at 4K60 with consumer grade cameras.

    The Blackmagic speed dial in the article shows performance based on a range of professional 4K codecs which require much higher write speeds.
