JPG or RAW?

if you already have the cards I'd just try them. JPG will probably be fine. Not sure about RAW.

if you don't have them already, just future proof yourself and get UHS II

Re: R6 SD cards

I will be shooting regular Raw + Jpeg.

I have plenty of UHS I SD extreme pro cards.

Just want to be sure that I don't need to waste additional money buying UHS II cards.

Any money that I can save to buy the 100-500 is a plus.

I can't help you with that, sorry. My estimation is, that 150MB+ UHS I SD card should be enough for 12fps RAW + jpg, but saw no hard numbers.

Would be nice from you to share your test results after receiving R6.

Re: R6 SD cards

Well if you have UHS-1 cards now, just put them in and see what happens on the fastest shoot you will likely ever have.

they will work but if they dont pass the speed test fo you then you can always order what you need and still shoot and get to know your camera while the cards are being delivered.

On my 7D. (CF + SD), I notice a dramatic difference in burst speed and buffer when I accidentally have it recording to the SD in raw.  Doesn't matter except for sports for me.  But I would not use UHS-I for sports.

Re: R6 SD cards

Thanks.

i will get one UHS II card and use it in slot one for Video and raw pictures.

i will use my UHS I cards in slot two for JPEGs.

It depends how long your bursts are. I wouldn't expect the files sizes to be substantially smaller than 6D ii, and it slows dramatically on a Sandisk Extreme Pro 95Mb/s card after about 15 shots (at 7 fps).

I think the buffer on R6 is supposed to be bigger than 6D ii, but it can also shoot at 3x the speed.

If you are shooting smaller bursts than the buffer size, obviously not a problem, but longer bursts may benefit from a UHS-II card (which may be about 1.5 - 2x the speed at clearing the buffer.

Re: R6 SD cards

Thanks . 
I will test it with both cards and see if there is a difference.

Let us know what you find.  In my 7D, the slower card seemed to jump and skip shots intermittently.  It wasn't a matter of the buffer filling and clearing as such.

A 64g  name brand uhs2 card is 35 dollars. Small price in the photography game. a high jpeg is around 15MB  12x 15=180MB 20x15=300MB in a second. get the fastest card you can afford just a suggestion.
