The card write speed will make a difference..... All memory has specific speeds at which data can be transfered. The HXD card claims to have a higher write speed so I would like to know if it makes any difference when shooting in RAW as it appears that the S9000 only has a buffer large enough to handle one RAW file at a time.

Therefore transfer speed is a huge issue with this camera. Waiting to take the next shot while the camera is doing a transfer from the buffer to the XD card... is painful.

Mansell.. I'm not sure what write speed the ultra has.... is this an M or H type XD card.

No, he is using a CF card. And it isn't going to provide any benefit to purchase high-speed CF cards, because the camera doesn't have any technology to take advantage of the higher speed. CF cards typically write at a slower speed than xD cards in this camera model.
