Re: D80 + SD Write Spped

You may want to read Rod's D80 test with SD card

It shows the write speed of SanDisk Extreme III 2GB = 9.414MB/sec and SanDisk Ultra II 2GB = 5.602MB/sec.

You could try other brands. I have ATP Pro Max 150x SD card and its transfer speed is two times faster than my SanDisk Ultra II when I test them with card reader & computer.


I have on order a D80 and must also buy SD cards. I haved used in
a D70 Sandisk Extreme III (CF), which have a write speed up to
20MB/Sec. The only source of information about the D80 write speed
I have found is at:


where he quotes an in-camera write speed of 9.5MB/Sec. I assume
this is correct, but I cannot find confirmation from any Nikon
source. If so I assume I gain nothing extra in terms of speed by
paying the higher price for the Extreme III over the Ultra II,
which has a write speed of 9MB/Sec. True or false? Advice
