High Speed Memory for A80
 
Hi,

I'm considering a memory upgrade for my Canon A80 and now I'm wondering if it's of any use to pay some more for a high-speed card. Does anyone have experience with (or knowledge of) combinations of memory card and this camera?

Thanks!

Tim

Not a well controlled experiment, but with an A70 in continous shooting mode:

mfr-supplied 16-MB card: 2-3 exposures at 2 exp/sec before slowing to several seconds per exp.

SanDisk Ultra-II/256-MB card: 6-8 exp at 2 exp/sec. before slowing down.

This website reviews CF card performance in digital SLR's. While the A80 is not in this category, I would assume the cards that are faster in those would also be faster in an A80. For myself I am thinking about a Sandisk Extreme 1GB or 2GB but then again I have a DSLR and that might be overkill for an A80.

To tim; I also own the A80. I use a 1GB 40x sandisk card and unless you do a lot of action pix dont spend the extra $$ for it.You wont see the diff. from the high speed card and a slower one in this unit.I do see a diff. in using my G2. but cant tell it in the A80.Tealblue
