A heads up for you owners of the above, just had the following as part of a e-bulletin from KM:

Quote:
11# Advance notice for DiMAGE A1 and DiMAGE A2 owners:

A new firmware will be available from the beginning of November 2005, which can considerably improve camera#s writing speed to a memory card in RAW format.

(The extent of improvement differs according to the types of memory card)
hope this is of use to someone

regards
Gary

good for you A1/A2 owners...but I wonder if they're going to release any improvements for the A200 though.

Without a doubt .

I'm sure many A1/A2 owners will be happy to hear this.

Now I might be able to make better use of,and justify my buying, my 80x Lexars

Don't worry Particle_Man, I'm sure you will be next :-)

Thanks for the info nealgs

I hope this update fixes slow/useless writing speed with Kingston Elite Pro because those are easily available, have good price and nice speed.

Although I surely wouldn't mind if they rise camera's maximum writing speed... It just feels weird why maximum writing speed seem to have been on same level since DiMAGE 7 while speeds of memory cards have increased so much.

Isn't it already good enough justification that it's one of the fastest cards in A2?
And that 12MBps speed is very nice when transferring pics to PC.
Also it works as really handy, fast, big capacity "floppy" which is much more convenient to use than CD-RWs.

Yes, it's a very nice card to have, but if the camera's limitations are to be extended, then all the better.

I agree that uploading is almost a pleasure with USB2 8)
