Re: Please.. Can somebody recoment Memory Card (brand and type) for D800 ?

I shoot RAW+Fine. I put RAW on SD (primary slot) and fine JPEG on CF (secondary slot).

So far, I am quite happy with this arrangement: always have a JPEG copy as a backup to the RAW.
I use Sandisk Extreme Pro 32G SD cards and Transcend Premium 400X 32G CF cards.To me this is quite cost effective:

Scandisk Extreme Pro 32G (95MB/s read, 90MB/s write): about US$85

Transcend Premium 400X 32G CF (90MB/s read, 60MB/s write): about US$46.

Since the CF is used to store JPEG, a bit slower than the SD is OK.

Some may prefer Extreme Pro all the way because of its operational temperature range.
