Right now I have a 16GB SanDisk Extreme class 10 (30MB/s) card and was thinking of getting a backup card. I don't want to just get some junk card for backup, so I was thinking of upgrading to the SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-1 (45 MB/s) and using my current as the backup.

I've been reading and I have uncertainty whether or not I will see a difference with this card because I'm not sure if the T1i can handle the newer technology. Secondly, would my computer that is about 7 years old and has an integrated SD slot, be able to read this UHS-1 card?

Thanks!

FWIW, I have three of these Sandisk Extreme UDMA 60 mb/s (2 8gb and 1 16gb), and I shoot RAW with continuous burst on a 7d, and while shooting weddings and sports, I've never had to wait while the buffer cleared. However, I don't continuous shoot for more than 1-2 seconds at a time, so that's about 8-16 RAW files blazing through the system. I don't think you'll need anything faster, but that's just my $0.02.

I use the u1 45mb sandisk card In my 60d. Just got some class 6 20mbs cards and have no issue, regarding buffer and speed In every aspect of the camera needing fast write speed. Anyway just saying because you can get 4 4gb class6 cards free shipping at adaromara for 49.95, great deal.

For t1i, any class 6 is fast enough. No need to pay premium for the extreme pro. Ur extreme is great.

Getting the extreme pro, u won't be able to use it's speed to it's full potential since ur camera body is the bottleneck.

Like people have said above, the camera will be the bottleneck for the cards. Even recording HD video or shooting in bursts, any decent Class 6 card should be quick enough. Since you said your computer is old with a integrated SD slot, you probably won't see much of a speed increase in transferring the pics to your computer between a good Class 6 and a UHS-1 card.

If you really want a UHS-1 card, they should be backwards compatible with the older card reader, you just won't get anywhere near the advertised transfer speed.
