I'm going to buy a Panasonic DMC-FZ10 just as soon as the UK gets some more stock. I guess they've been popular.

How do I choose a 256mbSD card? Steve uses and likes the Lexar cards but they only seem to be 4.8mb per sec whereas the new Sandisk Ultra II and Panasonic are 10mb. Is that important?

I am slightly suspicious of Sandisk whose web site does not even mention or sell the new cards, only the old slow ones!! http://www.sandisk.com/retail/sd.asp

Has anyone done any side by side tests of different cards in cameras recently?

Many Thanks,
Bisto

If you clicked on Professional Products on the left side of the page you'd find:

These super-fast SD cards from Sandisk, Lexar and others are only really useful if you have a USB 2.0 card reader. In the camera you won't see much difference between the two except a little fast burst write and playback speeds.

Ok thanks! I was mistakenlythinking that clicking on "Memory Cards" might do it :-)

Hi Steve! As far as I know the Kyocera Finecam M 410R specifically demand the high speed SD card if the owner would like enjoy the RTune advantages (3,3 fr/s).
