SanDisk SD card failure in Leica M-E


Recommended Posts

I want to share my experience of a SanDisk SD card failure in a new Leica M-E. I purchased the camera last November and it has performed flawlessly until a few days ago when I inserted a SanDisk SD Extreme 8 gig Video HD card, formatted it and shot about 16 images before it failed and locked up the camera. Changing the card restored the camera to normal operation. I have subsequently learned that this particular card has been problematic for the M9. Until this time, I have had absolutely no problems with this brand of card in over a decade of working with a variety of digital cameras.


Can I assume that if I switched to Panasonic Gold SD cards I can photograph with confidence and that the card will not fail like the many reported SanDisk failures?


Thanks for your help and any information provided.
