lomitamike:

Note that Delkin has a new 633X UHS-1 SDHC Card that looks interesting. But, tests I've seen in a Nikon D7000 show that you're probably wasting your money paying that much for one, as the camera appeared to be the bottleneck. See one article about that here:

http://glamourphotography.co/gear/uh...-32gb-45mbsec/

Here's someone that got slightly better results from one (but, the price difference is so great that the Sandisk appears to be a better bet)

Now, how those would test in the new Sony A77 remains to be seen (as the camera may no longer be the bottleneck, but we'll have to wait until someone tests them in an A77 to find out).

If you are a d7000 owner action shooting is not really your thing. And it is a waste to pay so much for a card that is not fully compatible with the camera.

Not if it will be fully compatible with the next camera.

There's nothing wrong with shifting the bottleneck from the card to the camera. If the card is faster than the camera, then you know it's not the card that's slowing you down.

I overlooked the announcement for the new Sandisk Extreme Pro UHS-1 SDXC/SDHC cards:

http://www.sandisk.com/about-sandisk...etail-products

They're claiming these newer 64GB and larger cards have write speeds up to 90MB/Second (600x) with read speeds of up to 95MB/Second (633x):

http://www.sandisk.com/products/dslr...i-memory-cards

The 32GB and smaller UHS-1 SDHC cards are rated at a slower 45MB/Second:

http://www.sandisk.com/microsites/Ex...DHC/index.html

So, it will be interesting to see how well the newer SDXC cards test in newer UHS-1 compliant cameras and readers that are capable of taking advantage of faster card speeds.

Thanks Jim.

As always, your wealth of information with the technical stuff always answers my questions.

My a77 pre-order has been canceled. Wouldn't you know it, I found a new a850 for a price I couldn't resist so the a77 along with SD/memory stick is going to have to wait for a while.

I have always preferred FF for portraits, and I have been doing a lot of them lately.

Go figure, years of waiting for the A700 replacement, pre-ordering as soon as possible then this deal on an A850 comes around.
