Camnostic has been testing most popular SD card brands (and some pretty obscure ones) in a few R5 cameras to see which ones perform best in various ways. This is similar to the review published last month of the R5 CFexpress card performance review.
[UPDATE: This data is used in a new article that also includes data from the R6 and RP cameras, found here…]
While the review is still under way at the moment, we do have a great deal of raw data to share. The chart below shows the critical variable: the number of shots a card can hold in a 30-second burst in mechanical first curtain shutter mode. The upshot: The Delkin cards win, with the ProGrade card essentially equivalent.
Canon R5 SD Cards Performance
|5||SanDisk 170MB/s 1TB||I||78,00||0,31|
|6||SanDisk 170 MB/s 256 GB||I||79,00||0,31|
|10||PNY Elite 128 GB||I||79,00||0,16|
|11||Delkin Black UHS-I||I||80,00||0,74|
|12||SanDisk 64 UHS I||I||83,50||0,31|
One of the Delkin cards – the “Power” one – is quite reasonably priced (the other is the “Black” line of cards that are toughened in various ways), and the ProGrade card is even cheaper at the time of publishing than the Delkin Power, although it doesn’t perform quite as well as the Delkin in the as-yet unpublished electronic shutter version of this test.
Camnostic is trying out an interactive table plugin, which some may see above. Others with certain browser configurations have reported that this isn’t displaying correctly, so we provide the data in a non-interactive table below while we troubleshoot:
|SanDisk 64 UHS I||I||83,50||0,31|
|Delkin Black UHS-I||I||80,00||0,74|
|SanDisk 170 MB/s 256 GB||I||79,00||0,31|
|PNY Elite 128 GB||I||79,00||0,16|
|SanDisk 170MB/s 1TB||I||78,00||0,31|
