Hi RB, if you are around, what is the best card to get for the Z710 with a fast write speed as I really like to use burst mode alot...
Thanks for any help offered.

Ron my have updated info but he has previously stated that card write speed capabilities are pretty irrelevant in camera. Others have stated the there may be an advantage to a fast card when transferring to the computer through a card reader.

Yours and my cameras write speeds not the card may be the controlling factor.

Naively, it seems to me it hinges on how big the buffer is relative to the total size of your burst, i.e., whether you fill it or not. If you do fill it, the speed rating of the card should exceedthat of the camera's rate of filling the buffer. If not, it doesn't matter.
