Standard xD-Picture Card (Type M)

Hi-Speed xD-Picture Card (Type H)
Quote:
the Type H card provides improved write speeds (up to 2x to 3x faster than previous xD cards) so photos and QuickTime® movies will be saved and formatted to the card quicker

Is my Fuji S5200 compatible with the "H" memory cards?

I own the Fuji S5200 and the H series 1GB cards are very very fast. I can write an image ever 2 seconds or so to the card in the 5MP normal quality setting. I find with an M series card I can write an images ever 3.5 to 5 seconds. If you move to the 5MP fine mode add one second to the above numbers.

Also if it matters I recently shot images of a large scale fire here and I fired off an entire 1GB Olmypus H series card in rapid sucession and the card keep up with every shot I took. I was able to easily get 500 images recorded in an hour -- but I did have to stop once to change the batteries in my camera.
