Fast card but does your camera require 90mb/s write speed
on 9 May 2014
I have been using 4 8GB Extreme Pro cards for about a year now with no problems at all, so I would highly recommend them to anyone, But there is one thing I would say to anyone looking to get these cards is your cameras buffer fast enough to benefit from the 90mb/s write speed!
I was looking at getting some more of these card but I did some research and found my Nikon D7000's buffer was not fast enough to benefit from the extra cost of these cards, I found that the buffer on the D7000 only requires a card with a write speed of 45mb/s so I ended up getting 2 Toshiba Exceria Type 2 32GB SDHC Class 10 which cost £24.99 compared to £42.82(at the time of writing) for the 32GB Sandisk.
I did some tests with my D7000, In Manual mode @ 1/1000 f1.8 iso100 on continuous high
RAW 14 bit
Sandisk 90mb/s write speed - 10 shots before the buffer kicked in
Toshiba 60mb/s write speed - 10 shots
Sandisk 90mb/s write speed - 110 shots
Toshiba 60mb/s write speed - 112 shots
So please check if you need the 90mb/s write speed first, also some cards have a fast read speed but have a slow write speed your camera needs the write speed, I need the speed when taken shots not when I transfer the data to my laptop.
