U can read the literature. But going out to shoot n practise is more important.
I was looking at Lexar and Sandisk memory cards. Does it matter?
Seems like Sandisk is more popular.
Both camps have their fans where they swear by it. Both camps also have a pool of people who cursed it because of failure.
You mentioned Live View. Most DSLRs have significantly slow Live AF, if you shoot more using Live View, you should aim for the best of the mirrorless pack like the Olympus E-M1, Fuji XT-1 or Sony a6000/a7.
SanDisk 32GB Extreme PLUS (80 MB/s)
Although this retails around 70-79 SGD here, this was going for 28 USD during black friday sale on Amazon/BandH/Adorama. I got mine locally before I saw this article.
IXY 810 IS | EOS-M | D3200 | D7100 |Df | X100T
My Xmas gift budget think is not enough for Olympus E-M1, Fuji XT-1 or Sony a7. At most EOS 70D or EOS 7D.
I was told to get multiple cards with smaller size (say 4 x 8GB or 2 x 16GB) rather than one big size card.
