SanDisk Extreme Pro 64GB SDXC UHS-I Memory Card, Up to 95MB/s Read/90MB/s Write Speeds (600x)
My testing last night.
5GB file R/W test (limited by my laptop’s card reader) 76MB/s read, 72MB/s write.
Previous Sandisk card has 45MB/s read, 41MB/s write. This allowed a burst of 8x continuous shots @ 5.3 shots per second, then 1 shot per second thereafter capturing RAW+JPG each shot, ie 33MB per shot. (will also allow 50x shots continuous JPG only).
But, this new 90MB/s Write card has transformed my 18Mpix CANON 60D camera. Allows 8x RAW+JPG shot initial burst, then a just perceivable pause (eg 0.25sec), then another 6x RAW+JPG shot burst before slowing down. Effectively 14x RAW+JPG shot continuous bust now = 460MB captured to the camera’s buffer just in 3.5 seconds ! This is a huge improvement. And the camera is ready for another shorter burst after another second pause. I had found the 8x shot burst limiting for kids sports.
18Mpix RAW only – now is 15x shot continuous burst (no pause) before slowing down.
VIDEO: The change here is the recovery time when banging of still shots during video. The cycle time is much shorter and little of the video is lost now (was typically 1sec of video lost – intrusive for sports).
From 8x shot burst (also CANON’s specs) to 15x shot burst - Best camera upgrade ever.
