The main disadvantages are: Slower speeds available in the microSD format as compared to full size SD Additional cost of the microSD format The addition of another piece that can fail, be lost, etc. The microSD cards are so small that some people are afraid of losing them or breaking them easily In today's market, the first two points are typically less of ...

A micro SD to SD card adapter is a passive device, i.e. it does nothing but provide a set of contact points bridging those on the micro SD card and those on the SD slot. That being the case, it should pretty much either work or not work, but won't impact performance... unless you find one of such low quality that the contacts fail to accomplish their simple ...

MicroSD cards are supported provided you use them with an adapter. The 5D Mk III manual says it can use cards over 128GB capacity so I would assume there is no upper limit.

Micro SD to SD adaptors are just passive wiring adaptors. So they should not have any impact on speed.

The Official Canon 5D Mark III website says: Recording Media CF Cards (Type I); Compatible with UDMA CF cards; SD, SDHC, and SDXC Memory Cards Note: No microSD is supported unless you use a microSD-to-SD adapter. It's also worthwhile to mention, a MicroSD-to-SD adapter would not bring any loss of performance (either in writing or reading speeds) since the ...

How to recover Testdisk and Photorec are usually good options for recovering files after deleting or formatting. Testdisk is good for accidental deletion. Use the undelete functionality in it to see if the file is still there and can be undeleted. It reads the file tables to see recently deleted files but does not attempt to search for them brute-force. ...

The official specification from the Canon website says it supports SD and SDHC cards. Not SDxc, though (which use the exFAT file system instead of FAT32 on SDHC). So as long as you stick to an SDHC card, you can use a 32GB card without any problem. The card class is only the "guaranteed supported speed" that the card supports, in reading and writing. You ...

SDHC and SDXC are descriptions of the card formats (Secure Digital High Capacity and eXtended Capacity). SDHC only supports cards of less than 32GB, while SDXC supports cards with more than 32GB. If your camera does not support SDXC, nothing you do to the card will make it work properly. The camera might see the 128GB card as a 32GB card, but the odds of ...

As far as I can tell from the Wikipedia description, UHS-I cards are backward compatible, if the "host" doesn't know about UHS-I they work like standard cards at standard speeds. I'm surprised that you use an adapter in a camera that is meant to be used in adverse conditions. You are adding an unnecessary point of failure. Why do you want to use microSD ...

From Lexar Website: "SDXC is an SD memory card format that is based on the SDA 3.0 specification. SD and SDHC cards are based on the SDA 2.0 specification. SDXC memory cards use the newer “exFAT” file system that is more efficient for SDXC’s large capacities, while SD and SDHC memory cards use the FAT32 file system. This difference is the reason that the ...

I have a T3i - the two generations older camera - and it handles 128 GB without issues. That is not a proof, but a strong indication that the T5i would too. If you google for 128 GB T5i, there are many combo offers that offer a 128 GB card together with the T5i camera. I would assume that the speed class is insufficient, or the card or converter has an ...

Came to confirm that the Micro SD card 256 GB can be used through the adapter to the SD card with the Canon 5D Mark iii camera and can be formatted within the camera. Tested the shooting and brought it to the PC, okay, both raw and jpg.

Looking only at digital cameras, some of them may only browse within the directories they have created (and understand), or they may allow the user to freely choose which directory to browse. I see three possible scenarios here: Camera does not recognize the "foreign" directories Con: You wouldn't be able to browse through all the photos Camera picks up ...

There is no reason I can think of that it wouldn't work. The cards are identical except for form factor. Pins/circuits/protocols are the same though. That said, unless you have a stock pile of SDHC cards lying around, it is generally cheaper to get fast full size cards than it is to get fast Micro cards. If the reason is to be able to transfer them to a ...
