this is my first time on this forum.:? I've been reading them but I've never started a topic. I've had several digital cameras over the last 5yrsstarting way back with the Kodak DC215,Nikon CP950, Kodak DX 6490, and now My Panasonic Lumix FZ20. I still have my CP950 I just can't let that one go. It takes excellentInfrared Pics. I was wondering if anyone out there has tried any "high speed" SD cards in their FZ20s and if they made a noticable difference.

You double posted and it looks like only half your pic shows. Search this forum first above and you'll save a lot of time.

From Panasonic Bob
"
First, digital still cameras are designed around a 2 MB transfer rate. Purchasing the faster cards is generally not going to offer any advantage. An exception to this rule can occur if you use inexpensive SD cards that are inherently slower than the 2 MB standard. There are also 3 specs; read, write, and copy."

Fast cards seem to help in the burst mode.

in the FZ'z, i find there is a marked difference in how well the camera works in burst or continuous mode. with a "standard" card, in continuous mode, the camera will stop every 5-7 shots to clear the buffer. with a hi-speed card, it just keeps on shooting.if you don't use burst or continuous modes, you won't notice a lot of difference, but the hi-speed cards are still faster to download to your PC and to erase. and considering the prices of hi-speed memory these days, you might as well get a 32X or faster card; it ain't that much more expensive, and there's times when it's downright handy.
