Re: Cannot format my sd card Canon Rebel sL1

" that has all been with (embarassed to say) a phone camara"

 

Nothing wrong with a phone camera if you are getting results you are happy with.

Re: Cannot format my sd card Canon Rebel sL1

I agree - the principles of photography are the same, no matter what device one uses.  However the technology between a cell phone and a more sophisticated camera are quite different.  Definitely worth getting good advice to make the best of your camera.  Good luck with it.

Re: Cannot format my sd card Canon Rebel sL1

Hello everyone; UPDATE. So I bought a brand new SanDisk from Best Buy and it is working like a charm! Something I noticed between the old sd car and the new sd card was that the old one that was not formatting is missing the V10 logo on the right hand side of the SD XC logo!

Glad to learn that this worked out OK.  It seems to me that the original one you got was a counterfeit one.  Maybe you can try to get redress, but I wouldn't hold your breath.

 

Good luck with your photographic journey.  Keep in contact and (we have a section where you can post photos for example) and if you need any further help you know where to come! Smiley Happy
