How fast a SD-card does a 6d need?
May 2, 2013

Hi all,

I am in the process of upgrading from my 5dmk1 to a 6d. The only downside is the need for new cards ...

Now, how fast a card should I go for?

- here is a class 10 45MB/sec or 300x card: http://dx.com/p/genuine-sandisk-extreme-sdhc-300x-high-speed-memory-card-32gb-class-10-154081

- but here a cheaper class 10 30mb/sec 200x card: http://dx.com/p/genuine-sandisk-ultra-32gc10-sdhc-memory-card-black-32gb-class-10-149814

Will I need the fast one in order to shoot video?

Or will the difference only tell, when it comes to downloading to computer?

Thanks

Morten
