Re: Which SD card for p7700?

How fast should memory cards be for use in P7700 (full HD videos and all...)? Are regular SanDisk Extreme cards fast enough and would there be any benefit from using Extreme Pro cards? Thanks.

Important question, because the P7700 doesn't buffer very well; there is a significant delay between shots when shooting Single (one shutter press for each shot). It's worse for large file types, and it's worse for slow SD cards.   But there comes a point where a 95MB/s card like SanDisk Extreme Pro may not have any advantage over half that speed for SanDisk Extreme, because the camera can't write that fast anyway.

If someone who has both types of card can test this, it would be appreciated.
