Nice. Yeah, me apparently battery-wise a full EN-EL15 should get the 6fps decent. Thanks for the contributionIt isn't listed in the owner's manual like was listed for the D700. If you look on page 67 of the owner's manual, it states the frame rates.
The speed of SD card makes sense…Are you maximizing the frame rates by using the fastest avail cards... I've always found that Frame rate doesn't mean squat in burst modes unless you're using the fastest (writeable) SD/CF cards...as well as the file sizes that have been selected... I've had better results just pulling frames out of a video stream than trying to capture anything in short burst modes...
Yeah, think that there are two things to consider the SD card's writing and reading speeds. If the writing speed of the card is way faster than that of the camera you're just throwing money away? As the article posted by Clovishound, the writing speed in 70Mb/s. So no need for a fancy 260Mb/s of writing speed.I may be old, but it gives a good idea of what the difference in card speeds will do for the D7200. From a quick perusal it looks to me like fps won't be affected by card speed until the internal buffer is full. My Z5 will only shoot at 4.5 fps, but the internal buffer will hold 100 frames regardless of file type or size. The D7200 buffer only holds up to 18 frames of 14-bit lossless compressed NEF. That means that write speed has a much bigger impact on frame rate.
If nothing else, I learned something about camera buffers, write speed, and fps. Looks like I wasted a few bucks on the 200 mb/s card I bought for my Z5, as I'll never fill the buffer on it. As a consolation, I may save some time downloading files from the card to my computer.
Good news is the faster SD
this is really comprehensive.. wow..Here's a rather comprehensive report on card speed and it's impact on performance for the D7200.
