Fastest SD card for D600?
Jun 24, 2014

I have a Sandisk Ultra Class 10 in my D600, and I can get about 15 shots before the buffer fills. I timed it at about 4 seconds per RAW file, so if I fill the buffer I have to wait a bit before shooting another burst. In day-to-day situations this isn't an issue, but CH drive is pretty important for shooting live music and sports. I can live with 15 shots, but I'd definitely upgrade if possible.

Is there a faster card out there than this one? Or is the bottleneck more with the camera's write speed, rather than the card's max speed?
