SONY SF-G Series UHS-II SD any improvement on an A7R2?

Recommended Posts

Dear friends,


Been rather detached from the forum for many reasons, one being that I had no real problem with my Sony gear...


Nevertheless, lately, and "shooting" birds (in the kind way), I have found my A7R2 rather lazy when firing in the high speed mode; it will fire 5 shots at once, but then stop and even with the button pressed I have to wait for what it seems to be ages till it fires once more, and even then it will shoot when it decides, not when I want to.


My actual memory card is the Scandisk Extreme Pro 128 gb.


So my question is simple; will the newest and fastest Sony SF-G UHS-II solve my problem to an extent? I know that with such a short buffer and 42 + GB files, I can't expect it to improve much, but any improvement might be worthwhile...


Since I will be visiting the US by the end of July, it might be the best option to purchasing this new memory, but need to know before I leave Spain.


Thank you all and best regards,


Spanish Flyer

      Raging wild fire in California.  The ashes covers large part of sky, and gives a strange hue.   Sunset in the distance glows in unusual cherry red.  Not a happy day for those who lost their houses 30 miles from where this photo was taken earlier today.  Cross my fingers for those brave firefighters.

      is it just me? I have been trying to use the newish Sony tethered software ,Remote,  but cannot get it to see my A7r2. 
      Tethering works perfectly well with Capture one but all I get is a message telling me to change usb to remote which , obviously , it already is set to.
      the other parts of the software , viewer and edit work ok on already downloaded images 
      The original Sony remote pc software also finds the camera with no issues.
