"RE: D600 memory"

I believe that you want the fastest card you can buy, even if the camera can't take advantage of all that speed because you still need to import all those files into your computer, and a plain old Class 10 card isn't all that fast.

I use the SanDisk Extreme Pro 16 GB SDHC Class 10 UHS-1 Flash Memory Card 95MB/s cards. They are extremely fast not only in the camera (the D600 supports UHS-1 cards) but in my USB 3.0 card reader. Makes import via Lightroom very fast, even with the large NEF file sizes.

Here's the speed test I ran on the UHS-1 Sandisk card, reads twice as fast as a 45mbs cards and 4.5 times as fast as my Transcend Class 10 card.

Here's a Class 10 and Class 6, same benchmark program, for comparison:


Transcend 16g Class 10
File size - 100mb
Seq Read - 20.55mb Seq Write - 17.56mb
512K Read- 20.06mb 512k Write - 0.598mb
4K Read - 2.397mb 4k Write - 0.006mb
4k QD32 Read - 2.421mb 4k QD32 Wrt - 0.006

Eye-Fi 8g Class 6
File size - 100mb
Seq Read - 17.22mb Seq Write - 13.49mb
512K Read- 16.40mb 512k Write - 1.904mb
4K Read - 2.592mb 4k Write - 0.017mb
4k QD32 Read - 2.749mb 4k QD32 Wrt - 0.017
