you could spend your other half small fortune as well
Any recommendations on CF card please.
I use Sandisk Extreme Pro. About £50 for a 32gb. Use the same for the SD slot. A bit annoyingly pricey but I think now that Lexar don't really exist, it's probably the best option. The write speed does seem to be more important on the D800 than most cameras. Really notice the difference in general operation.
Just a note on size, I shoot 14bit lossless compressed raw and can get near 800 photos on a card. I guess if I was shooting an event I might want more but most of the time, that is plenty.
I use Sandisk as well for CF and SD slots . irrespective of GB size I do make sure the mb/s is not less than 90 and recently using 160 in both D800 and D810 cameras
Yep. Though worth mentioning that cards are marketed on their read speed but the write speed is the important aspect. So worth reading the actual spec rather than than the headline number as the read and write speeds can (and do) differ massively. But never the less the Sandisk 160 cards are among the very fastest.
i have put a sandisk extreme 90mb sd card in it already as they are what i always use so shall do the same for compact flash
I use these and they’re great. For landscape you don’t need the fastest cards.
You might have missed the boat with Black Friday as amazon were doing 64gb Sandisk cards for a little over a tenner
