Title: Zoom Q2N - which micro sd card?
Post by: willsie01 on April 15, 2018, 12:27:22 pm
I'm pretty lucky: the family have bought me a Zoom Q2N for my birthday :)
Looking forward to using it but it's supplied without the micro SD card it needs.
I'm looking for a suitable micro SD card but can't match the codes of the ones recommended on the Zoom website to the one available here in the UK. Any users of the Q2N on this forum who can advise on suitable cards?

What class of card is recommended? For a video recorder you probably want a Class 10 U3
Perhaps a Samsung Pro Plus MB-MD64GA?

Unfortunately, Zoom's website gives a list of approved card model numbers (the ones I can't find) but no specification that I can find. And I'm a total novice with this stuff.

There's quite a list, but these are the 64GB numbers.
SDSDQXP-064G
SDSDQXL-064G
SDSDQUPN-064G
TS64GUSDU1
MUH-B064G

...and I have now found this info on the Zoom site: micro SD/SDHC/SDXC cards (Class 10 or higher, up to 128 GB)

San Disk and Toshiba are readily available, but if those are older cards they've likely been superseded by newer versions.

RS have Transcend cards on back order for delivery next month.

If it is an SD card, buy an SD card. If it is a Micro SD card buy a Micro SD card. They are all standardized. The only real choice that you need to make is how much money you are willing to spend for how many gigabytes you desire to use.

I've just picked up the one I ordered from the Amazon Locker nearby and it looks identical to yours
