Default Question for pana bob


Please can you tell me the write speed of the 8mb and 16mb sd cards that come with the FZ1/10, i've just got a 256mb card made by viking products and its a least 60% slower in burst mode than the panasonic 16mb card that i have.

Standard 2MB/s - it's not until you get to their (and others) 256 MB and 512MB cards that the 10MB/s write/read speeds are available.
AFAIK, only Panasonic, SanDisk Ultra II (steer clear!), and SimpleTech's are the fast variety. The rest, I think are still churing out the standard ones.

The 256mb SimpleTech SD fast card that pjskelti is referring to is now on sale for around $70 shipped at the SimpleTech site ---


Enter coupon code 24205-134 and get $39 off the original price of $105. I've heard that SimpleTech is a re-branded Panasonic card so this is the cheapest I've seen these fast 10mb/second cards. I think this price is good till the end of March. The FZ10 is terrifically responsive with these SD cards.
