All SD cards are built to the same standard.

The standards organization is here:

Panasonic's parent company, Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd is the founder of the SD standards.

Panasonic brand would certainly be a good choice.
But I buy whatever brand is on-sale.
Never had a problem with any.

Rule number-1:

When you buy a new card, A L W A Y S format the card with the camera that it will be used with. If you fail to do this, you could end up with a card full of pictures that you can not access.

You don't want to know that I don't buy brand lable for this commodity item. Compgeeks dot com was where I picked up the last dozen and some didn't appear to have a name on them. But they are working just fine.

Shop around,
