Default SD Card Formatter

SD Card Formatter for SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards from the SD Association:

https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_3/

Quote:
This software formats all SD memory cards, SDHC memory cards and SDXC memory cards. SD Formatter provides quick and easy access to the full capabilities of your SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards.

The SD Formatter was created specifically for memory cards using the SD/SDHC/SDXC standards. It is strongly recommended to use the SD Formatter instead of formatting utilities provided with operating systems that format various types of storage media. Using generic formatting utilities may result in less than optimal performance for your memory cards.

The SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards have a "Protected Area" on the card for the SD standard's security function. The SD Formatter does not format the "Protected Area". Please use appropriate application software or SD-compatible device that provides SD security function to format the "Protected Area" in the memory card.
For camera use I think I'll continue formatting cards in the actual camera that the card is going to be used in.

Ditto. In fact in a camera every time you transfer your photos to a computer and then delete them from a card it is best to go ahead and reformat the card in the camera to clean the card up of its memory fragmentation so new photos don't register fragmented and increase chances for corruption.
