Writing speed of Sony A7R III???
« on: April 20, 2018, 05:16:42 am »

Does anybody know what is the actual writing speed of the a7r III for RAW uncompressed photos on the faster SD card slot?

I can't find any info on that....

THANKS!

That's because it almost completely depends on the speed of your card.

Look here for options and comparative speeds.

Also, I'd ignore the peak speeds, as well as the read times - when you're waiting for a thirty-shot action burst to save to card, it's the average write speed you're interested in, not the maximum or read speeds.

Sony really should have put two UHS-II slots in the A7r3 and A9, instead of one UHS-II and one UHS-1 - the camera can only write at the speed of the slower card, which really slows you down if you want to use dual cards for data redundancy.

I have noticed that! Writing speed seems to be the same, the slower of the two.... I don't get it.
