Hello Canon experts, I would appreciate your verification of the following please.

The Canon S100 specs say that 1920 x 1080 at 24fps requires 4,355 KB/s. Does this mean an SDHC card faster then 4,355 KB/s write speed will not make a difference in performance?

Likewise a large 16:9 image requires 2,311 KB/s. Does this mean that with a 45MB/s SDHC card write speed, I can snap 1 shot every 50ms?

I am confused about whether the Canon specs mean the KB/s required to capture an image and compress it or just to capture it. I don't understand why the specification tables state "RAW" and "JPEG" are "N/A".

Correct. You need a Class 6 card or better, and 'better' probably won't help.

No. Your camera has a maximum shot rate of something like 2.3 per second normally.

If you are looking at the table I think you are ("number of recordable images"), I think this is because RAW format is only available in the native 3:4 aspect ratio.

Thank you for that, lar55.

You just saved me some cash.
