A77 memory card write speed

I did some test how fast my A77 can write to different types of memory cards. I have 3 card at hand:

  • Sandisk Extreme 8GB Class 10 30MB/s

  • Sandisk Extreme Pro 8GB UHS-1 45MB/s

  • Sandisk Extreme Pro 32GB UHS-1 95MB/s

I tested with the following settings:

  • FW 1.04

  • M

  • AF-M

  • 1/60

  • f2.8

  • DRO off

The results were quite interesting:

  • fast cards like the UHS-1 types only make sense if you shoot raw

  • a class 10 card is more than enough if you only shoot jpeg

here are my results (I did shoot for 20sec then waited until the buffer had flushed)
