Stores offer both micro SDXC and standard size SDXC cards. The micro cards come with standard size adapters.
If the specs are otherwise absolutely identical, e.g.:
- SanDisk Extreme UHS-I/U3 Micro SDXC Memory Card, 64GB
- SanDisk Extreme UHS-I/U3 SDXC Memory Card, 64GB
is there any reason to choose the larger SDXC card over the micro? The only negatives of the micro would appear to be physical vulnerability: easier to lose and more physically fragile.
But I believe that from the camera's perspective, they're identical -- and the micro is a bit more future proof as I can use it in a wider range of devices, correct? Can anyone come up with a reason why the standard SDXC would be preferable?
For example, do standard size SDXC use larger process NAND memory cells or have better/more wear leveling or error correction? Or are they identical from a chip perspective and it's only the package that is different?
