Not sure if this is the right place for this question but I’m trying to figure out the best memory cards to use with the Sony a7c. So many options. I shoot mostly photos with just an occasional video.
Any help would be most appreciated.

Welcome Susan. I've put together a memory card guide for the a7C that you might find helpful:


Basically if you shoot a lot of continuous bursts then it's best to go with a UHS-II card like the SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-II (300/260).

If you don't shoot many continuous bursts then a UHS-I card like the SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-I (170/90) will be perfectly fine.

There are benefits to the UHS-II cards when it comes to copying files over to your computer, as they will copy roughly twice as fast as the UHS-I cards if you are using a UHS-II card reader like the Sony MRW-S1.

Hope that helps!
