These are today's prices on Amazon for high-speed UHS-3 Micro-cards, 32 and 64K. $15 and $23.
As always on Amazon, prices can change daily or without warning.
Amazon.com: PNY Elite-X 32GB microSDHC Card with Adapter-UHS-I, U3 - up to 90MB/sec (P-SDU32U390EX-GE): Computers & Accessories

Amazon.com: Samsung 64GB 100MB/s (U3) MicroSDXC EVO Select Memory Card with Adapter (MB-ME64GA/AM): SAMSUNG: Computers & Accessories

Don't pay too much attention to the stated long ship date for the 64K. Usually is within a week.

Nice find, what is the maximum size we can use on the Typhoon H?
 
256 probably, but the performance/price point is what I watch, being cheap.:eek:

EDIT: Somebody is saying the max size is 128. Oh well...

A 64gig card records an enormous amount of data with 4k video. There's enough capacity there to store a week's worth of video files flying 10 times a day. That's a lot of video to be lost if you failed to download it and something went wrong where you lost the card, the files became corrupted, or you put the H into a lake or something. Imagine how much worse that would be if you had a 128 or 256 gig card filled with files.

It's not how much you can put on a card, but how much you should put on a card and keep it there. Large capacity cards are great for storage, if they are stored. A large capacity card that is used to record only a little bit of data is a waste of space and money.
 
Agreed... much better to have two 32 GB cards... so you have a spare. What I want to know is how much of
a difference will (for example) a V60 rated card make, as compared to a Class 10 U3 rated card?

Doggone, I meant to say that. And the cotton-picking 128 and 256 are out of sight pricey.
With 4 other cams besides the CGO3s, I need to label these things, maybe a Rolodex micro-card holder?

I agree with this. I use 32gig cards but since I transfer all the image files and leave no image files on the cards. In most cases what I do in one day will fit on a 16gig card...but that's in most cases. There are instances where I can collect more than 16gigs of data but never ever anywhere near 32gig, so 32gig cards are appropriate for me.

I'll let you know. I just ordered a V60 card. I'm not even sure it will work with the CGO3+. The U3 card is supposed to be equivalent to a V30.

Do an Amazon search. They have some SD card "wallets" that sell for a couple of bucks or less. You can see through the compartment windows and write on them if you want. I picked up two of them a year ago. They work out pretty good.

Works fine. I think this V (for Video) designation is a way to move beyond the outdated 10s, UHS-1 and UHS-3 being stopgap. The Vs have tight ratings, whereas the 10s, even with a UHS-3 marking, can vary.

The important thing, which you know but others may not, is the WRITE speed rating, not the READ rating.
Reputable UHS-3 cards have no problem with 4K.
