Has anybody used these? I'm trying to get my camera to get ready to take the next shot as quick as possible....cutting down write times. Anybody? :confused: I'm using MMC atm and have been told SD will be quicker anyway? :confused:

I think most digital cameras will run faster with SD than with MMC. Whether they will run faster with a high speed card than with a slower SD card depends a lot on the camera.

Generally 1X is 150k/sec. So a 32X card would have a write speed of around 4.8Mb/sec, which is fast enough that many cameras would not benefit from going faster. And many cameras, especially older models, will not benefit from over 2Mb/sec. Some of the newer cameras do get a little better cycle times with even faster cards than 32X, but no by a lot. I decided to not take a chance with my new camera and bought a Sandisk Ultra II card for it, which is around 60X. Some people who bought the same camera went with an even faster Ultra III, but I don’t think they are getting faster performance.

Yes I agree it will only write as fast as it can......think I'll get one and give it a try anyway. :)
