What SD CARD should I buy?

If you want an SD Card for your camera - these are the ones I use and recommend. 

I'd strongly recommend not to buy any SD cards off ebay - I've heard about too many issues with counterfeit cards - often sold on by unwitting resellers. My inbox regularly gets messages from people who bought a £150 camera then cheaped out and bought a £3 memory card on ebay - Then when it doesn't worth they blame the camera! It doesn't make any sense. Good memory is cheaper than it's ever been - see the links above.

A lot of HD cameras will not work properly with cards larger than 32GB (cards over 32GB are usually SDXC rather than the SDHC standard used by 32GB cards. SDXC cards use the ex-FAT system rather than FAT32 - in short they are a different standard). - so don't just buy the biggest card you can afford - read the specs in the manual to see what it accepts.


RECOMMENDED CARDS (for action cams - see dashcams below)

CLASS 10 UHS-1 CARDS (For HD Cameras)


U3 CARD (For 4K cameras)




The SD card in a dashcam is re-written over, more frequently than in other types of cameras. Some manufacturers void their guarantee if an SD card was used in a dashcam. So, no surprise, there are special High Endurance SD cards made just for's some.


VERY IMPORTANT. These links take you to the product, however Amazon have three different ways of selling. There's Amazon Direct - This means that you are only dealing with Amazon themselves, then there's other sellers that use Amazon's facilities - these show as Fulfilled By Amazon and finally there's Market Place sellers that advertise on Amazon, but operate independently.  I strongly recommend that you only use the first...the Amazon Direct - Sold By Amazon option. Even if it appears that you are paying a couple of £/$ more it is more than likely you are comparing the price of a real item against the price of a fake.

To give you an idea of the extent of the fake goods problem. In a 2016 survey by Apple - 90% of the 'Apple' chargers sold through Amazon - using the other the two methods..which includes the "Fulfilled by Amazon" option -  were found to be counterfeit....90%!

The *Best Helmet Camera (*for me)

If you ask me to recommend a Dashcam I'll say the Viofo A119. My favourite action camera? Well that's the Yi 4K...but finding a good side mount helment camera has been a bit tricker. The Contour range were great for their time but the image sensors are now long in the tooth. The Drift Stealth 2 was good enough for me to use one for the last couple of years, but now it's finally been replaced on my helmet by the camera reviewed below.

So now if anyone asks...the Sena Prism Tube is my favourite helmet camera. Watch the video below to learn more.

You can download sample clips here - but do not stream them as they will only show in their original quality when played locally from a downloaded file. There's always that one nutter who tries streaming them and then complains when they look terrible - you don't want to be this guy.

Do you know if this camera is being superseded as it's unavailable on Sena's own web site here & America, unavailable on Amazon or eBay here or in Europe?

I can't find this camera to buy anywhere, so annoying!

For those wondering about the camera being out of stock, it looks like they're getting ready to release a wifi version so keep an eye out for it possibly. link:
