From an poor enthusiast's perspective, 500+ is quite a lot already for what you splash out. It's all about the price/capacity/failure probability ratio.
However, I understand where you're coming from of course, that's why the SD folks make them huge cap cards in the first place, for the people who *really* use them: The Working Pros for whom space is not something they can skimp on.
I'm a poor, relatively unproductive photo enthusiast lol, 64 is already a good deal of flash real estate for me and I simply can't justify anything bigger... yet.
Me too is now on 64GB Samsung Evo Plus for my A6000.
Shooting fully in RAW+jpg now. After transfer to PC and Ext HDD will delete the RAW copy on the SD card keeping just the JPG for preview on camera since A6000 got no in body RAW processing.
Now happily sitting at 1.2k RAW+JPG remaining with close to 3k jpg all the way from the first pictures taken when I just got the camera.
The Samsung card is enough for me since A6000 can't really write much faster than the rated write speed of the card. Got it for 24SGD during PC Fair down here.
Btw... Had gotten a number of new toys recently and also some cheapo filters from eBay and Lazada to experiment with. Quite a number of 3rd party cokin p square ND/GND filter set, round screw on ND filter, macro filter for fun, reverse lens macro adaptor, step up rings from 40.5-49-67, some lens and body caps (Sony I'm looking at you for not including it in kit lens packages) etc. Though still on the way. Looking forward to toy with those
Got a SEL55210 from Zaloon, discovered that there's some issue with manual focusing. The lens tends to detect that the lens zoom is being altered (zoom in or out) then it will drop out of focus and also goes out from MF Assist mode. When the lens thinks the zoom has changed let say by 1-2 mm, under manual focus the focus point will just jump
See if I can get the tourist warranty from MY to work in SG.
And another toy... Samyang 12mm f2. Got it cheaper with 2 years local SG warranty here. Even cheaper than yl, zaloon and kldslr. Current arsenal
Then... Another toy. Finally no need to keep camera attached to the wall to get the battery charged. SGD8 from Lazada. Worth it!
