Hi _____,

Welcome to Nikonians!

Both cards will work well in the D5200.

If you fill the buffer, the 95MB/sec. Card will clear the buffer a little faster allowing you to capture a few more images per unit time compared to the 45MB/sec. Card.

BTW:
When you get a few minutes please fill in your Real name in your User Profile.

Thanks in advance.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

If you take a picture and then take another picture and then take anotther picture and so on, I doubt you would notice a difference. However, if you find youself using the continuous fire mode, you'll find after about 8 or 10 shots, the camera will slow down while the buffer is cleared. I that case, the 95 might allow you to fire a longer string before it slows down.

In Cl mode at 3 FPS, the Extreme Pro will allow you to shoot raw pretty much indefinitely. The Extreme will slow down to about 1 FPS after 7 exposures.

In Ch mode, you will fill the buffer in about 8 exposures, then continue at about 3 FPS, using an Extreme Pro card. With a regular extreme, you will fill the buffer in 7 exposures, and the the camera will slow down to 1 FPS.

If you are not going to rattle off long bursts, a UHS-I class 10 card with 30-45 Mb/s write speeds will be very affordable, like $1 per GB.

I have several of the Sandisk Extreme cards in 30mb/s and 45mb/s flavors. I have no problem shooting bursts of 5-6 images on either type of card on a D5100. I haven't really tested it beyond that, but I'd say you probably don't need to pay for the 95mb/s unless you plan on taking dozens of continuous photos without pausing.

I've had no problems shooting 1080i/p video either on those cards.
