Problem: Low double-beep sound recorded in video mode while using a Nikon D810. It only seems to happen when I use my Sandisk Extreme Pro 160mb/s cards. There is a double-beep every second.

Solution: Use the slower cards.

Is there anyone else encountering this? Just wanted to warn you before you go out to record an important shoot. Makes the audio from the video useless. On the web, there seems to be other makes and models of cameras (both DSLR and video cameras) that encounter this.

Interesting. I have encountered strange audio problems like that before but haven't been able to attribute it to anything. I always have 1 or 2 audio backups/redundancies going during a shoot.

Check the rating of the card.  Cards are actually made two different ways, those for video are optimized for continuous recording, those for stills are optimized for burst download of images.  Although it doesn't always matter with today's high speed cards, and since I still shoot for TV clients with a video camera that can talk to a Telus or  Bell BENG box, I make sure the cards in my video camera are manufactured and rated for video.

See the Sandisk knowledge base

http://www.sandisk.com/go/hd/  UHS Class 1 and Class 3 are the ones rated for HD video.  Note also according to the knowledge base the actual recording format may be a factor.

I've attached an audio file. You can hear the constant ticking between me saying hello.

Nikon D810. Manual audio sensitivity set to 15. But you can still hear it down to 9. No lens used (same sound with multiple lenses). Same ticking sound on two Nikons.

I guess this is why I never just rely on the audio from the camera.
