SanDisk Extreme Pro 16 GB SDHC Class 10 UHS-1 Flash Memory Card 95MB/sThanks for the link Darrel. It's interesting to see how useable the camera is rather than trying to work it out from stats. Depressing though, how much more useable the top Sandisk card is than their 45mbps one!
I went from a 45MB/s card to a 95MB/s card and noticed a huge difference. It was very noticeable. I went from struggling with the D7100's buffer to being okay with it instantly.Hi Darrel. Yup, I realise the new Extreme Pros are 95, so potentially more than twice as fast than the 45s I mentioned (if that's what you meant?) but I'd hoped, like Glenn I think, (from a selfish, financial perspective!) that any speed advantage of the 95 cards would be all but negated by the camera's limits.
I guess the D600 can similarly capitalise on the card speed.
I tested my 30 mb/s Sandisk cards the same way about two years ago and got similarwell shoot howdy, that was a surprise!..............thanks gee I wonder If I can uncommitt my ebay order:biggrin:
I'm just guessing here but I would think the D7.1k would be less because the buffer is the same size/speedThanks William. That as what I'd expect of the D7000, and I'd wrongly thought the D7100 (and maybe the D600?) would be the same.
Same here. Significantly more usable. You just learn to live with this compromise thanks to the other more positive aspects of this camera.I went from a 45MB/s card to a 95MB/s card and noticed a huge difference. It was very noticeable.

but the files are bigger (24mp/28.5 MB vs 16mp/19.4 MB)... This is also reflected in the official specs from
D7100 (scroll down to "Memory card capacity")
D7000 (scroll down to "Memory card capacity")
Can't even guess at the D600 as I know nothing about it's buffer...
This makes me hopeful that there will be a D400 style camera... The D7xxx series seems purposely crippled (slightly)Looks that way same size buffer bigger file sizes. Problem is the D7k was not the biggest buffer anyway, so now we've even less.
If the D7100 could shoot 12-14 shots raw nobody would be complaining even with moderate speed cards. For this class of camera really it has entry level buffer sizes. On a positive note the price quickly dropped in Europe to more reasonable levels and will probably fall even more shortly. Buffer aside you do get quite a bit for your money has to be said.
