Re: D800 too slow with "Backup Mode"

I tested the D800 extensively with different speed cards and I agree with your original post -- time to write is approximately the sum of the time to write separately.

I was disappointed. But I almost never fill the buffer. Maybe once in months. It is a bit annoying when you go to look at the images on the LCD and it won't respond for a while, but it's a minor nuisance in the scope of things.

I keep a huge SD card and a big CF card, having SD larger and CF primary means as I delete images while shooting (since they only delete from primary) I won't fill up the backup unexpectedly.
