Shot an engagement shoot last weekend and started shooting in burst mode to capture more candid moments. My Sandisk Ultra 30MB/s didn't want to keep up. I'd shoot like 8-10 shots, or even more, then had to wait for my camera to write them to the card. Didn't like this at all. I'm wondering what the fastest read-write speed is for the 60D and if something like the Sandisk Extreme Pro 95MB/s will allow my 60D to shoot faster. Thanks!

Continuous shooting buffer
• Approx. 5.3 fps
• Up to 58 JPEGs, 16 images (RAW)

From DPreview.com

Makes no mention as to which card was used

I have read that the 60d can't make use of faster cards than the 30mb, I have the 45mb cards and the 30 and don't notice any difference until I am transferring them to my comp where the 45 is faster. the 60d will use cards faster than 30mb but don't think it gets anything extra out of them.

That's a bummer. Guess I'll just have to budget my bursts.

As already mentioned, reportedly the 60D doesn't take advantage of anything higher than 30MB/s.

Performance tested with a 30MB/s card here:

Canon has "cheaped out" on its SD card interfaces for all but the most recent models. Even the 5DIII cannot take advantage of the fastest SD cards.

Yeah. Your camera is spec'ed to burst at 5.3 fps with a buffer that can hold 16 RAW and 58 JPEG images. That's 3 seconds of RAW and 11 seconds of JPEG. If you learn to better observe and anticipate, you should have no trouble working within that to get the candid shots you want and expect. If you are shooting RAW, keep your bursts below 10 shots or so (2 sec) you still have reserve to take a shot or two while the buffer is emptying out the burst.

M Raw, no JPEG, will give you a 19 image burst. Experiment if that will give you something to work with in post.

To get more you honestly have to shoot around 8-10MP Jpeg. Raw or high L would slow your burst down

Fine L JPEG is good for about 50 photos on the 60D... If you haven't nailed it by then...
