Hi,

I currently have a 32GB Sandisk Extreme 45Mbps.

Will I see any difference by buying a 32GB Sandisk Extreme Pro 95mbps?

Thank you

Only if you use a card reader t transfer images to your Mac, assuming the card reader data transfer is good then that file transfer should be pretty much twice as fast, then you will be up against the write speed of your HDD....

Best is to time the activity on your full card now and see if saving half of it is worth it - that is a best case scenario...

I did a basic test where I did continuous shooting and I filled the buffer on my Sony A6000. I timed how long it took for the camera to let me review an image. I don't know if this is a Sony limitation or if all cameras have the limit.

I don't normally shoot continuously and fill the buffer so I'm not sure how important this knowledge really is.

Below are the results. This might be handy if you need that buffer cleared sooner in order to take more shots.
