How about memory cards. Would this camera's write speed benefit much from a higher class memory card. And then would you know if the benefit quits at class 4, or 6. Would be a real waste of money if the camera couldn't write as fast as the expensive chip
Order area at bhphoto is currently shut down last night. I've given up on finding the hs10 locally in se michigan. Guess the wife won't get a new camera for the anniversary monday
B&H showed them out of stock yesterday. Newegg had them yesterday.

hoppingmad-

Yes, the eneloops seem to work well but can trigger an early battery warning which is false. Ray-o-Vac rechargeable NImh Batteries also seem to work well. A class 6 card should be sufficient, based on the write speed of the HS-10. And yes, again, the HS-10 continues to be difficult to find in inventory across the USA.

for the fun of it, has anyone tried a cheap card in anything to compare speed. I have a couple of $20 16 gig cards in the house. (work fine in the phone)

Camera is just released but all here seem to love it. More entrys then the competitors also

the last 2 sony's lasted 1 year before dying, the 1 before that lasted 6+ yrs(3 1/2 floppies) and was replaced. Anyone have experience with those extended warranty plans? especially from online where you can't walk in and raise heck

Sarah you suggested class 6, I looked and didn't find a write speed at least not where i was looking. I assume camera saves to internal mem and transfer (at least with multi frame captures and high speed video)
did see an olympus sp800 claiming 2 gig internal but don't remember seeing any greater fps info. And I wanted to play with high speed video capture, which oly didnt mention. HS10 has a pretty small image size at 1000fps
Guess I better get over 2 newegg pretty soon and order the thing

I am getting my feet wet with both taking pics using the HS10 as well as getting something to upload to here.

Just tried some moon shots - this was the best. JPEG, tried my hand with Silkypix and just did a "Normal" sharpness, and then cropped it with another program (could not figure out how to do in Silkypix).

A tripod and timer is absolutely essential for this kind of shot. Looks like you're getting to know the HS-10 fairly well now.

My battery monitor problem seems to have rectified itself Go figure!
