SanDisk will confuse people with their description and Amazon doesn't make it any easier. This isn't truly a uhs1 card based on it's model number. There's two types of this card but the difference in appearance in very small. The SanDisk ultra plus is meant for higher end cameras with bigger lenses and wider aperture like the dslr cameras that are rated for uhs1 and gopro hero 4 newer cameras etc. Both cards are rated as class 10, but camera devices rated at uhs1 will demand more and that's where the uhs1 comes into the equation. This especially applies for newer devices nowadays that will throw as much data as fast as possible onto the sd card per second.
This SanDisk ultra is for non demanding devices like the plastic Samsung galaxy phones all over the place, or pretty much any cellphone or tablet or older slr cameras. Check your specs! If you payed 2 grand for your slr camera, you probably shouldn’t even be looking at this card. If you use regular class 10 card in a gopro newest cameras or expensive dslr cameras that can take so many pics per second or 1080p recording at 120 fps or higher or any 4k recording etc, then prepare to drop some frames and wont look the best. It will still work but prepare for a headache, even if gopro website specs say only class 10 is needed… (They’ll list minimum “recommend” specs like every other manufacturer does) Same idea in using only a crescent adjustable wrench to take apart a car engine; you’ll do it but its gonna suck. You need the right tools so get the right card.
You can use this on gopro hero 2. Not sure about gopro hero 3+. I have the uhs1 in my gopro hero 3 silver. The item in this amazon listing is not the SanDisk ultra plus uhs1. I had to go to Walmart but cost more. Recommended You’re gonna need uhs3 for 4k recording. I hope this review helps someome out there because i was confused and called SanDisk and they were also confused like it’s a different company that’s labeling their packaging, so i had to do my own research. Check the attached images and cross-ckeck model numbers for whatever you want to buy if you’re still confused. Gracias. GIGITTY!!!
