It's come to the time where my 128GB Samsung Micro SD has only 1% of its capacity left. Given I'm going travelling this summer, I need more memory to shoot.
Is it better for me to buy a USB 1TB HDD, transferring all my photos onto that (they're also stored on my PC so that'll just be a backup) and leaving it to gather dust until my PC dies or my SD card fills up again. I'll format my SD card and use it as new.
...Or should I buy a new 128GB SD card and just use that?
The HDD is only £20 more than the SD card yet is 10 times the capacity. My only worry is if formatting the SD card will shorten it's lifespan or reduce its write speed (my 1300D has a bad enough buffer already!).
