For anything that supports the fastest write speeds, this is the card to get: https://www.sandisk.com/home/memory-...epro-sd-uhs-ii

Doesn't miss a beat even with 4k video. I use the older 280 mb/s version of this card in 64gb for recording 4k video, and it just hums along. If I was buying today, I'd probably get the 128gb version though.

---

Don't forget that the second SD card slot on the A7R III is only UHS-I. It can't take advantage of the extra speed of the 300mb/s Extreme Pro cards.

For the second slot, this card will do:

https://www.sandisk.com/home/memory-...mepro-sd-uhs-i

This is the model of card I've been using for years for cameras that support UHS-I.

When I was shooting weddings with the Leica M240, the 95mb/s extreme pro card in 64 gb was the only card I used. The card itself was never the problem...

----

I have some similar, very fast Lexar SD cards somewhere, but I stopped recommending them after the company changed hands... the new Lexar doesn't have a track record yet.

Does your camera significantly slow down while shooting if you have a slower card for raw recording? Did you miss any important shots because the camera was still writing on the card? I just try to figure out how much influence a slow/fast card have in a real shooting situation....

It's easy to find info about cards. Not so
easy about the write speed of the camera.
In general, the fastest cameras are MUCH
slower than the fastest cards, so don't be
overly worried about card speed.
