I recenly upgraded my DSLR from an 10 mega pixel to a 24 mega pixel. When examinging the new camera I thought it was curious that it has two SD Card slots.
I went to give it the first stress test on Tuesday for a basketball game. I was shooting away and looked at the counter and realized I only had a few shots left. Lesson learned, and I should have known it, higher megapixel cameras will require a much larger amount of storage.
Good thing I was not shooting RAW.
What does the community recommend for a read write speed for some new SD cards. My 4 GB cards are not going to cut it.
I am not going to pay $500 for the 450 mb/s write card. And I probalby don't need that fast.

I would just go with a card that read writes at about 90 mb's per second. The only way I would use a 450 MB per second card would be if I was shooting a lot of 4K video footage. Why not shoot RAW? What camera did you get?

I got a Nikon D610. My D80 was starting to have a harder time finding the focus.
Really no good reason to shoot raw. Most of the photos I take are shared and a few printed.

Ya know you COULD had adjusted the photos size from L to S?
Onily time I shoot RAW is for paid shoots. JPEG for every day goof around stuff.
As for card speed, I just look more for GB. Even though my cameras CAN do video, I never used that feature. Just not something I really care to use.
Reducing the size is what I did do.
