So you just picked up a Kodak Printomatic instant camera, congrats! It's a good option for those just starting in the world of instant cameras, and it's easy to carry so that no moment escapes you. While the benefit of an instant camera is to have the photos print out automatically, sometimes you want to have a digital copy of the image too. Fortunately, the Kodak Printomatic supports microSD cards up to 32GB. Here are some of the best options out there for your Kodak Printomatic.

Final thoughts

These are some of the most recognized name brands out there when it comes to microSD cards. My personal, trusted favorite is the SanDisk Ultra microSD card, as I've purchased multiples of these in various capacities and they have all been very reliable without breaking the bank. If you're looking for something slightly cheaper, Samsung is a good choice. This card is ideal for your camera and also works well with video.

It's never a mistake to have too many microSD cards on hand, which is why I can't help but recommend the SanDisk kit. You get two high-quality cards for one affordable price.
