Re: Sandisk 32gb SD

Sorry to resurrect this one but I though I'd add that I tested a 2GB Sandisk MicroSd in the supplied adaptor and used that as the only storage as the D800. It worked fine!

The only benefit I can see of this is that I could copy files to it, pop the Micro SD into my phone and view the photos on its lovely 1280x720 display or share them without resorting to Wifi or uploading to PC.

It is of course SLOOOOW, took a good few seconds to write a single image to card! I'm sure a class 10 Micro SD would perform much better which I haven't tried yet.

So it's a doable option especially if you're looking for the instant-share factor as I was.
