Nikon D500 Continous Shots with SD? XQD vs SD
« on: February 25, 2016, 02:25:41 PM »

Anyone have a number for how many continuous shots can be made on the D500 using fast SD?  Obviously, since no buffer depth has been given, one is required to factor in the storage card performance.  Nikon hit 200 shots using a XQD card (no card model specified as I am aware).

I'm thinking, for me at least, this really isn't going to matter too much.  I know I would never take a 20s burst and doubt I would even take more than 5s.

I bring this up after having looked at the new Sony M Series XQD 64GB card rated at 150MB/s ($96) and the 64GB Sandisk Extreme Pro II UHS-II SD card which claims a maximum write speed of 250MB/s ($130).  I find the Sandisk claim suspect beyond a momentary burst rate.  I just didn't think I'd find a SD card significantly more expensive than a comparable XQD card.

Nikon's Q&A sheet that they handed out to people working their booths at the shows says that the data they publish for continuous frames with XQD cards were established using a Lexar 2933x card.

That Lexar card is rated at 440MB/s
They quote 32GB—Up to 440MB/s read, 390MB/s write

In a "leaked" document, which may the one handed out, Nikon stated maximum uncompressed RAW 12 bit in a single burst was:
XQD 200 Card Lexar as above
SD 64 Card Lexar Pro 2000
Which Lexar describe as: leverages UHS-II technology (U3) for a read transfer speed up to 2000x (300MB/s)

My Hitachi 1GB Microdrive CF card just failed, maybe time to move on card wise?

Here's the answer to your question: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/nikon-d500/nikon-d500A6.HTM. Appears the maximum number of images is constrained by the camera's software.
