Hi everyone,

Can someone recommend me some SD card (512mb) which is compatible with Z3? This is because i hear that there are some incompatible. I'm willing to fork out more for a better and fast card. Is recording movie affect by the speed of the SD card?

EXTREME ~ 6 MB/sec (5.5-7 with cardreader) and keeping cool (handwarm)
Sandisk ~ 5 MB/sec and getting hot (heating the also the cam)

So far I've had no issues with whatever SD card I put in it. I have used cheap and expensive, slow and fast. It doesn't seem to care what I've put in it. They all worked well.

One thing I do plan to do though. I am going to file off that little nubbin on the SD card door. I can still easily open it with my finger but less likely to get snagged and open unintentionally. I may also use some velcro to help keep it close. I'll try filing first and see if the magnetic catch keeps it close. I really don't want to lose a card. I did like the old position on my Z2 better.

All in all I like my Z3 much better than my Z2 and I liked it to begin with. Colors seem better saturated and a little more "pop" to the pictures. Zoom is much quiter and the camera seem all around more solid. AS lens does its job too.

You have a stuck pixel. Interesting how many CCD faults there are. From approx 10 new Z3 users 3 had a stuck pixel.

Sorry, I wanted this reply to go to the other thread.

Yes, I noticed the pixel. I am seeing about getting a replacement. I don't know of any easy way of unsticking it. Anyone have any ideas? I found a good way for doing it on my LCD monitors but so far no luck on my digicams.

If anyone has any ideas in how to possibly unstick a stuck pixel I am open for suggestions.

I bought a 512 MB Sandisk Ultra II. Expect to pay between $100 - $125 for it.

So far, well worth it. Writes very fast, never experienced any unexpected delays yet. No heating to speak of, but time will tell.

Writing high-res movies at high FPS was extremely satisfying, although it's not something I tend to do a lot.

When it comes to a chip like that, you're going to pay in that "ballpark" anyway, so I always try to get a good brand and a fast chip. No sense in stinching on a few dollars and being sorry later.
