Got a Nikon Coolpix S9900 and totally confused as to what memory card you should get for it?
If you find yourself in this predicament, keep on reading, as we highlight the top-rated memory cards that will be a perfect fit for your camera.
The Best Nikon S9900 SD Card
With so many memory cards to choose from, it can be a bit challenging trying to figure out which memory card you should get for the S9900. Even though I will list the must-have SD cards for this camera below, you should keep it in mind that when choosing a card consider price, storage capacity and performance.
When looking to invest in a SD card for your camera, your first option really should be a 128GB card. 128GB gives you a really good amount of storage space for your pictures and videos and what’s really good is that the price is not something outrageous. For only a couple of bucks you will get a high performing memory card that will be the perfect fit your camera.
If you won’t be storing all the pics you take on your SD card, or you don’t plan on shooting too much with the camera, you can always go with a 64GB card. These cards are cheap! and they also give you more than enough storage space for whatever you take with your camera.
If you want a low cost card that works, then 64GB is another option to consider.
I really like the 256GB SD card as an option for the Nikon S9900, the only issue is that it is expensive. If you find that the price is something you can work with, then I would highly recommend this as your go too card.
This card is perfect for professionals or those of you who take tons of photos of videos. You won’t have to worry about the card filling up at the wrong time, simply because it offers so much storage space.
I Now Have Options, What Size Card Should I Get?
Even though I gave my suggestions above, some of you might be wondering how to go about choosing the right card? The card you pick will really depend on how you plan to shoot with your camera. If you are someone who loves taking a lot of pictures or videos, then the higher capacity 128GB & 256GB SD cards would be the options to go with.
If you are someone who is not looking to spend a lot of money, or won’t be taking tons and tons of pictures, then the smaller sized cards can work. 64GB is a good amount of storage space, which won’t get filled up anytime soon, but you could also use the 32GB and possibly 16GB SD card with no issues. You really just need to understand the storage capabilities of the different card sizes (I highlight that below)
