HS20 SD card, series 6 or 10 ?
 
When I bought my HS20 I was told that a series 6 SD card was fast enough. Is this true or would I be better off with a series 10. I currently have an 8 gig series 6.

Depends on what your definition of "good enough" is. The class 10 card will give you noticeably faster write time and that, in turn, allows you to take the next shot that much quicker.

Thanks Gary. I didn't know if the camera could procces the pictures fast enough to take advantage of the series 10 card. I got the series 6 card because I needed it to keep up with taking video. And it does keep up.

The camera is fast enough to gain benefits even from the new faster UHS cards !
And the benefits are noticeable !

I'm not sure if a class 10 memory card is necessary, but just in case, i purchased a Samsung Class 10 for 16 through Amazon UK. I thought the price is relatively good for a card that is capable of up to 21MB Write and 23MB read. A 'standard' class 10 may only do a 10MB write.

Not all SDHC are produced the same.

I still think the camera is limited in how fast it can proccess pictures. When I use continuous shooting it takes a while before I can shoot again and I know it doesn't take that long to copy pictures to the card. I've copied pictures from my computer to the card and it copies faster than I could shoot. I guess the only way to know for sure is to try it.

My best guess is that a class 6 is usually enough for a bridge camera

OK, everybody is free to do what they want !
For those who think the world around them is changing every second, and people who know that what they knew few seconds ago is maybe not current any more, there is the worldwide web, and everyone can make a research about the topic of the threat

;)

I'll just mark one thing : The 16 MPx picture has just the same information on bridge or DSLR.

I found a noticeable difference between a class 4 and a class 6 and even more noticeable difference between class 6 and class10 cards in the camera. I only use a class 10 in the camera when I use this camera now.
