Anybody know what sppeds the FZ20 uses ?

I'm buying on and want to get an SD card which matches.... i.e. not spend too much on a really fast card which isn't required.

Any opinions would be nice

From the review of FZ20 on http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/pa...ew/index.shtml

Quote:
It took 10 seconds to flush the buffer after a burst of 4 shots using a "regular speed" SD card and only 2 seconds using an "ultra high speed" card.

Thanks for that, I must have missed it in the review !

Although, it still doesn't tell me how fast the '20 can go.... do I need a 33x, 60x or 80x or ???

Anyone ?

I am using the ScanDisk Ultra II. The transfer rate on them is about 10MB per second. They are on sale at Circuit City for $89.99 for the 512MB.

As far as the buffer speed of the camera goes. I am not sure, but if I find it in the book or somewhere, I'll let you know.

Hope this helps.

Speaking of that, anyone here uses the 1GB SD on the FZ10? I wonder if that is supported.

Bob, see if they are still running the special. When i got my FZ-20 picked up that card and there was a $15 off coupon. check your receipts it comes out automajically. Hope it is.

This question has been beat to death. The fz10,15,20 have a maxium write speed of 2mbs. The problem is with the poor QC on SD cards below 10MBS. Get a 10mbs sd card that is all you need.
