Don't buy this card for ANY camera that's recording compressed video in the 28-100mbps range. Which is basically literally every single consumer video camera (a6000, every version of the 5D, GH3 etc.) It's not going to struggle with 1080p60 because most cameras, like the a6000, shoot 1080p60 at 28-50Mbps.

It's absolute overkill and there are many many many cards which are cheaper per GB and still plenty fast (including the regular Sandisk Extreme - non pro version).

The only video cameras that require the Sandisk Extreme Pro are cameras shooting video in RAW - which is to say something like the BMPCC or hacked Canons running ML (5D mk III etc). Those cameras will drop frames if you record with slower cards.

Even the BMPCC shooting in ProRes 422 at 220Mbps (which is a higher bitrate than EVERY available consumer video camera) doesn't require this card (though it does require a slightly slower SanDisk Extreme).

Also the same price at major online places like B&H Photo Video [bhphotovideo.com] and Adorama [adorama.com]. Looks like Sandisk did a major price drop?

Ugh, remember paying ~$70.00 for this in 2014 for a BMPCC and thinking that was a great deal at about $1/GB.

That's 280 MB/s READ speed, not write! Write is 250 MB/s.

And in any case that's just peak read/write, not sustained. Though they are the fastest SD cards in the real world.

Now I wish I'd posted that Monday when I ordered one. No tax for most as well.

Your camera asked for a faster card not a larger card; that is correct,
but at this price point, why go below 64 GB? 64 GB is no longer 'large'.
Bigger is better in storage space.
Apparently, your camera will do mo' better with a U3 card as opposed to a U1 card...
and it's willing to tell you. Sweet! I'd listen to it and get a 64 for $34 dollars.
In fact, I forwarded this on to my son.

I had some USB3 device report to me that it could be 'betterer' if I use a USB3 port instead of my USB2 port. Nice. Frustrating, but nice; I had no USB3 ports.

Keep in mind, most cameras can't make use of the UHS II specification because they can't read the second set of pins in the SD card. Some cameras even do worse with this card.

The card in this post is the fastest possible card for most cameras at this point.

thanks for your response. i agree more space is always gud. I guess what i wanted to ask was ---how much space does a 30 sec AVC video file occupy ?
If its more , will make my decision easier.
I usually take out the photos \ videos from the card , the same day of taking them .

Edit: If you look below, what I said is apparently incorrect.

The wirecutter doesn't go as far to say it in the same words but it pretty much concurs when it talks about burst shooting in RAW.

No, I think they're talking about U1 vs U3. It takes a certain amount of bandwidth per second. See https://www.sdcard.org/consumers/...index.html U1 can do video recording but I imagine it might struggle with 1080p60 (or 4k) video. This isn't about space but rather about how fast the card can store the data that the camera outputs. I imagine there is only so much that the device can keep in its buffers.

Any reason to go for it over this Sony for $24?
