Hello,

I am a newbie to photography and I was looking at purchasing one of these SD cards for my New Canon T3i and I wanted to know if I would benefit from getting the 32gb over the 64gb?

32gb

64gb
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

So will I notice a difference when taking pictures between a 32 gb 90 mb/s and 64gb 30 mb/s? does the mb/s make a difference from taking one picture to another? does it write to the card faster, so when I try to take a new picture, the camera wont say busy?

Thank you for any help.

when you do 1080P Full-HD Video or high-speed continuous shooting then you will notice. For the T3i you don't notice the difference between both of them.

30 mb/s is more than sufficient, even for video. I use the cards to shoot HD on the 5DmkII all the time, even using older cards. You might hit the card's 30 mb/s limit only if you do a lot of continuous shooting in burst mode, as cin19 pointed out.

On the flipside, faster cards with a suitable card reader also result in faster transfers to your computer.
