Can anyone tell me if it's worthwhile paying the extra $$ for the Sandisk Ultra 11 SD cardas opposed tothe regular Sandisk SD card for the FZ20?

Thank you

I would... Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it (burst mode for example)..

Just my opinion of course,

the hi-speed card will not only allow you to use the burst mode and continuous shot features much more readily, it will also make downloading to yoru PC faster, and when it's time to clear the card, it's a lot quicker.

Have you tried any cards from Kingmax? I just read another note from someone who uses/likes them but I have never heard of that make. Hate to spend the money unless I know it's good.



Thanks again....

I bought a kingmax 512 66x sd card from newegg.com last week for my new camera. Its MUCH faster than the included panasonic card but thats the only thing I can personally compare with.

For what its worth...every review I read (here and elsewhere) on the kingmax was positive for both performance and value.

No problems with my kingmax 512....very fast. It does not have write-protect capability, if you need that. newegg.com rocks! 2nd day fedex shipping!

I have a couple of high speed kingmax cards and they are great. They are cheap and work well, what more could you want.

I have128 sandisk normal and 512 mb sandisk ultra II.

The ultra II works very good and is very fast when write and read the photo.

Great difference between sandisk 128 and sandisk ultra II 512
