DP2M - 30mb/s vs 95mb/s SD Cards
Aug 23, 2012

So I bought a Sandisk Extreme Pro 32GB Class 10, 95MB/s card in hopes that the DP2M would write the RAW files quicker. I was replacing a 16GB Class 10 30MB/s Sandisk card.

It wasn't worth it. The write time is more or less the same. It takes about 11 seconds to write each image before I can review it in camera.

I'm debating sending the card back and just getting a higher capacity card at 45MB/s or 30MB/s (64 or 128)

The 32GB card yields 545 RAW Photos for anyone who cares. It definitely won't be enough space for me were I to travel overseas for a week or two.
