Is someone able to recommend a good site for SD card reviews? I need a site that is into digital photography, so I can pick out the right card etc.

I don't know of any, but What kind of photography are we talking here? Ultra High Res? Video Shots?

I do know of three SD cards that are fantastic.

http://www.samsung.com/us/computing...-cards/sdxc-64gb-pro-memory-card-mb-sd64d-am/ - I prefer these over the other two because I actually have the 32g and can vouch for it. Reliable.

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/prod...1800r_64gb_professional_uhs_ii_microsdxc.html - Fastest of the three, Probably the best choice out there atm unless you need big storage capability for 4k video. Also, microSD format with SD card adapter.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00WWBCQEI/?tag=05060701-20 - Same range as the Samsung card listed first. Pretty good deal, and great overall reviews. Comes in 32,64,128,256, and 512gb varients. I recommend a maximum of 128 personally, unless you are storing all of your data on it.


EDIT: Found a great digital photography review site

I often see the Samsung cards on sale.

I would like to see more high end cameras using SATA or NVMe SSDs as even a cheap SSD is way faster than any SD card and they're available in higher capacities. A few Black Magic Design cameras and recorders take common 2.5" SSDs.
