Re: Do we really need Sandisk Extereme Pro 95mbps read & 90mbps write speed?

I recently picked up a Sony 16GB SD card with 94mbps for $20. There is a noticeable improvement in write speed as well (compared to much older 45mbps Sandisk) following 10 fps burst modes in bith a55 and NEX-6. The read speed doesn't really help much as both cameras slow down from max burst rate at the same spot (19 frames, RAW+JPEG, on a55 and IIRC, 11 frames on NEX-6). I did not test for JPEG only bursts.

For all practical purposes, you cango either way but it is easy to find 94-95mbps cards now so might as well.
