Also, with the D7100 having twin card slots, one option might be to buy a fairly small capacity Extreme Pro card and a really cheap, high-capacity slow card for the second slot, then transfer images from fast to slow Shen not shooting.

That strategy will work but for other readers it would be good to point out some disadvantages:

- You can't use your camera while doing this copying.

- The slowest card determines the write speed for both slots when you write to both cards at the same time (or when you're copying your data across).
- Think about this: you just spent $1200 / €1200 / £1100 on a camera and then you're going to not spend €20 extra to get the right card?
