Dual card slots: configuration?
5 months ago

Planning on picking up a D810 today, migrating from the single orifice D700. I've already picked up a few high quality CF cards and they'll be my raw destination. Regarding the SD slot, I'm hoping to use that for the occasional video and JPG, especially until the final ACR gets released.

Is this a reasonable strategy? What speed would be best for the SD? My CF cards are 160 mB/second, and don't know the SD world, and how highly I should spec.

Also, my two new 160 mB CF cards are 32 gig. Does it make sense to get a 64 gig SD, in case I decide to use the SD slot for redundant card write in the future?

Thanks.
