With the recent surge in interest for fly cams, quadcopters or camera drones, people can now get a bird's eye view of their surroundings. There are a number of such devices to choose from, but the competition has thus far been dominated by the DJI Mavic Mini and Osmo.
To many users, the size of these devices is their winning factor. That may be true, but compactness and functionality won't mean anything if you don't have a place to store videos, don't you think? That's were SD cards come into play.
A wonderful memory card plays a very important role for any Drone camera users, in case of insufficient data storage, video corruption, file loss, or memory card errors. Both of these cameras are compatible with a number of SD cards, but you only want the best of the best, don't you?
The Mavic Mini and Osmo are powerful devices, so it only stands to reason that they utilize powerful storage media. And what exactly does that really mean? Is there a benchmark you should be aiming for? Yes, there is.
For any SD card to work flawlessly with the aforementioned devices, you need to watch out for its storage space, quality, speed, class and durability. Each is a criterion you should not ignore, but once you get an SD card that meets these necessary requirements, you can slot it into your Mavic Mini or Osmo without worry something will go wrong.
The first and most important factor that should influence your decision when purchasing an SD card for your camera is its size or capacity. SD cards for the Mavic Mini and Osmo should ALWAYS be on the larger side (a maximum of 256GIG is recommended, but certain users have been able to use SD cards of about 400GIG with no issues whatsoever).
The 5 SD cards listed below are excellent and can easily meet the necessary requirements; the slight differences between them don't really hamper their efficiency or durability. Each was selected based on quality and patronage, so decide which of them suits your preference or needs the most and pick it.
This SD card has great write speeds clocking 160MB/s and 90MB/s. This SanDisk Extreme A2 V30SD is obviously the favorite of many an Osmo or Mavic Mini user around the world. For one, it's highly recommended and it receives universal acclaim. All this means you can use your DJI Mavic Mini and Osmo to full potential because the SD card can handle whatever you throw at it.
Cheap doesn't always equal poor quality; this is certainly the case with the UltimaPRO Premium Micro SD card from Integral. It's more affordable than the other four on this list but it doesn't trade its speed and quality for the lower price; indeed, it can write at speeds that clock 100MB/s and 70MB/s.
True to its name, the PRO Endurance exhibits a remarkable resistance against wear that stems from perpetual writing and overwriting of data. The SD card's innovative NAND technology also makes it nearly impervious to cycles of recording. Samsung doesn't kid around when it comes to quality and durability, and this is clearly evident in the PRO Endurance.
If you're looking for an SD card that's pretty much everything-proof, look no further than here. The SanDisk Extreme V30 Action Camera Micro SD is water, temperature, x-ray and shockproof (see what we mean?). With this SD card, you never have to worry about how safe your videos or pictures are regardless of how extreme the conditions of the place you're shooting in.
With this SD card snug inside your Mavic Mini or Osmo, you can take thousands of photos and record hours' worth of videos and still have the space to store more. The MyMemory V30 PRO negates the need for you to constantly switch out numerous memory cards because you already have one that can store all the content you could possibly need. And don't forget its remarkable performance means it will streamline the process of writing data.
Recovering lost data from SD cards is an issue that's perpetually troubling users of camera drones and action cameras; matter of fact, it plaques anyone who uses an SD card in any kind of device. The only good thing here is there are now powerful tools out there capable of recovering the data you lost. Ever heard of Recoverit Data Recovery? You should have, because Recoverit has always been a household name in the realm of data recovery.
Recoverit Data Recovery is a cross-platform software developed to tackle the most demanding data recovery needs. If you've lost data on your hard drive, pen drive, SD card or any storage media, Recoverit is your guaranteed solution to get that data back; your Mavic Mini and Osmo SD cards are not exceptions too. Did you lose all your pictures and videos due to a corrupt SD card or other technical woes? Recoverit can get all of them back for you.
Okay, now that you know about Recoverit's main features, it's time you learned how to use it. Don't worry, it's the easiest thing ever.
Launch Recoverit and look under "External Devices". Your SD card will be there. Select it and click "Start".
Recoverit will initiate a scan on the card. As it was hinted at earlier, you'll have great features you can use to streamline the scan and recovery process. For instance, you can simply tick the file types you want to recover instead of everything.
The conclusion of the scan will reveal a long list of the files the software found. Recovering them is just a matter of you selecting all the files or specific ones and clicking "Recover". The files will all be retrieved and saved on any location of your choice. Just be cautious and don't save the files on the same SD card.
If you have lost your videos and can’t find them with the standard recovery method, then you can try the Advanced Video Recovery feature of Recoverit. It will perform a deep scan on the system and will let you get back heavy or complex videos with its advanced splicing algorithm. You can find it at the bottom left corner of the program interface.
Simply wait for a while as the Deep Scan will take more time to merge and splice the video fragments to recover them.
The application will display the results of the Advanced Video Recovery and will let you preview them. You can look for specific videos and view them on the interface of Recoverit. Select the videos that you wish to save and click on the “Recover” button.
See how simple using Recoverit is? You just launch it, make a few clicks and your lost files will be reunited with you once more!
Data recovery process is no doubt a complex procedure but you don't have to worry about all that. Many complex elements within Recoverit work together to give you excellent data recovery but when you're the one to execute the action, the software harmonizes them for you so you only need to click a few buttons in no more than 3 steps to recover all your data.
Purchasing a DJI Mavic Mini or Osmo is only the first step because you won't really enjoy using either camera without an SD card that can guarantee the safety of your files. Knockoffs are everywhere (both in markets and online stores) so always be wary of the SD cards being advertised to you before you buy them.
If the worst does happen, Recoverit can pull you out of the mess you got yourself in. All you have to do is taking the 3 above-mentioned steps. Effortless and effective. That's all and you're done!
