Excerpt: Research shows all SD cards are not created equal, even for the same class rating. Sandisk is one of the few brands approved by Nikon for use with their DSLRs. B&H included the 16GB version with the D5300. It formatted fine in the camera, and has room for about 1000 Large/Fine (6000x4000, minimum compression) shots. 45Mbits/sec write should be enough to keep from filling the buffer while shooting continuous JPGs. What's not to like?
Pros: Large Capacity, Reliable Performance, Writes/Reads fast
