Don't forget to account for the time you took to push these other SD
cards into your laptop, mount them, and copy the data over you wanted.

Since you have your laptop with you, the scenario where you have one
very big SD card in a single internal slot, and effective and fast
network access to that storage from your laptop lets you swap videos in
and out of a large "cache" on the internal SD.

Doesn't that meet what it is you try to achieve with the
buying-and-swapping-many-cards method in a cheaper and smarter way?
