SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-1 64GB SDXC Card

I just wanted to let everyone know that this card does indeed work with the Sony AX2000 & NX5u with no errors or issues. It's currently the fastest card you can buy for these 2 Sony Cameras. They are Super fast @ 95 MB/s.

Re: SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-1 64GB SDXC Card

Also using 2 of these is cheaper than the FMU and keeps the cameras lighter having 128GB internal rather than external on the camera.

I like having both SD cards and the 128GB FMU for backup purposes.

Just to confirm, I assume by "fastest" you mean transferring data from the card to your computer right?

Re: SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-1 64GB SDXC Card

This is from SanDdisk site:

*Up to 95 MB/sec (633X) read speed. Write speed up to 90 MB/s (600X). Based on SanDisk internal testing; performance may be lower depending upon host device. 1 megabyte (MB) = 1 million bytes. X = 150KB/sec.

I am using the SanDisk Extreme® SDHC™ UHS-I Cards 32GB (nearly half the price than the Pro) for my NX5 with no problems at all.

No - I mean actual use being the fastest. Fastest card while filming - writing to the actual card. Lots of head room - card can keep up with anything your throw at it.

I was just letting everyone know the top end 64GB version does indeed work flawless.

I paid $175.00

I'm not trying to discredit you. I just want to make sure I understand before I consider purchasing. Isn't the maximum bitrate for AVCHD 24 MBit/s ? That would be way below the speed of the card. Or am I missing the difference between the two?

Re: SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-1 64GB SDXC Card

I ordered a couple of the 64Gig SDXC Transcend class 10 cards that were 79.00 a piece for my NX5u, and AX2000 from new egg...

Re: SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-1 64GB SDXC Card

i'm always a little nervous of having a big card, because in the event of a failure you lose big too! I have a mix of 16's and 32 Gb cards on my HXR-NX5 SDH and Memory Stick Duo, seem to work quite well. All class 6 or 10.
Would love to have the 128GB FMU but the cost here is crazy something like $1,200 !!

Re: SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-1 64GB SDXC Card

I can see having the 64GB for size and "speed while offloading" but I still would like to know if the NX5 or any AVCHD camera can write to a card any faster then 24 mbit/s? Can anyone answer that for me?

Re: SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-1 64GB SDXC Card

Since the NX5u as well as the AX2000 are rated for a class 4 and up card I see no benefit in buying the more expensive Extreme cards....they are not going to write any faster than their current rate on the extreme ...Also the sony cams are not coming anywhere close to writing faster than the current crop of SD cards can handle, unless of course you buy a really cheap knock off that lies about its advertised write speeds....

Re: SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-1 64GB SDXC Card

Dave,the camcorder writes in sequences, not continuously on the card. So the bigger the write speed, the better. The buffer will be ready for more information quicker to avoid bottlenecks. That's why people want faster speeds. Any decent memory card can sustain 24mbit/s.
