WTF. I said I had the 45mb/s card and he said you NEED a 700x card to shoot burst mode and 1080p video on the NEX. Is this true at all? These cards are like 200 dollars...

No Nex camera will take advantage from speeds of any card faster the (Class 10) 45mb/s.

I have a (UHC-1) 90mb/s card and it has exactly the same performance as the 45mb/s.

Having said so, i am comparing Sandisk cards. There have been reports that card manufactures rate their cards in the best measured performance way, which is not the same as the actual delivered performance.

Hence there are some myths around SD card performance.

Sandisk, in comparison, seems to underrate their cards to guarantee performance.
