Do you want Big cards for the big files, lots of smaller cards for less reliance on one device or Wifi Cards for wireless studio work?

Or Flashcard .

There have been issues attempting to use brands other than Sandisk or Lexar in the D800, so you ,ay have to stick to a card made by either of those companies.

When I had a D800 for a brief play, none of my Kingston cards would work in it.

There's a bit more info on what does, and what doesn't work here .

I hope this helps.

Fyi, I recently got a couple of Sandisk Extreme Pro 600X, and using them in an Olympus E-M5, the speed is even noticeable when erasing or formatting the card. I would highly recommend it, great for video and continuous drive of 9 fps. I got 2 8 gb cards, I don't use raw, from Hong Kong for $26.00.

Sandisk.
16gb CF backed up with 16gb of Sandisk SD at least Extreme (pro if you must)
Or Lexar .
I use these in my D800 with no problems
Why buy a D800 and try cheap cards ?
