Since I do Timelapse I need a fast card, with a lot of space, so I just bought a Sandisk 64 GB 80 MB/s. But when I used it I found out that the card was pretty slow. It takes about 40 secs for a photo too register on the card. Witch is way to much, becouse must time-lapse are done with a 5 sec interval or close to that. Anybody have any idea what the problem could be?

I use the nikon D600...

Wow that is WAY too long even for a slow card.

Possible that the card is defective, maybe try exchanging it for a new one. Also are you shooting in RAW without really needing to (a lot of people feel like they need to when they really don't) ?
