Excellent discussion. But let's see if we can put a finer point on card selection...

In looking at the specs, I can see no compelling reason to go with more than a 400x (60MB/sec) rating (acknowledging the oft-discussed download speed advantage). The minimum on the brochure is Class 6 (60x... yes six-zero)for video. And considering that the price jump for a 32GB card at 400x to 600x (90MB/sec) carries an approximate 75% price premium, selecting the "right" card is not insignificant, especially if we are buying 3-4 cards. Is a potential (?!?!?) download advantage of 50% worth $75??? Multiplied by 3 or 4, not to me.

Thoughts??


Cheers!!
