Speed of memory cards
11 months ago

Hi,

over the last year I tested nearly 40 different memory cards in the D800 and measured the write speed in camera. Finally I found some time to set up a webpage to share the results.

The test results and a description of the testing can be seen at

Enjoy!

Don't want to steal your thunder...

Another well-known chap also has a website. There is a drop-down box for different cameras tested

Interesting.

Looking at your results for SD cards I was surprised to see that the 16Gb version of the Sandisk Extreme Pro 95 MB/s is twice as fast as the 64Gb version.

Why is the 64Gb version so slow? It's meant to be a fast card.

One question... The "Result in" is the smaller number the faster card....?

Yes. This column shows the time necessary to write the 16 TIFF files.
