for my SX10IS, right now I'm using a kingston 2GB that was in my S2IS before. it doesnt even say what speed it is

could the new camera benefit from a faster card?

Get a class 4 or faster card-I suggest looking at Sandisk.


Canon cameras: PowerShot S95, SX20 IS, EOS 1100D (T3) & 300D.

For an SX10 IS it doesn't really matter what card you get...the camera isn't fast enough to take advantage of a fast card anyway. Continuous shooting maxes out at something like 1 frame/sec on the SX10, so any card is pretty much faster than the camera.

A fast card would be quite useful if you had something like a 1D Mark III that shoots 10 frames/sec...but on a slower camera there is no difference.

Yup....totally right. I see that 99gt has a 40D....so do I. Even that camera which can shoot at over 6 frames per second does not benefit from a faster card (may benefit in the sense that it could upload picture files from a reader to a computer faster..but won't make a difference in the camera itself - and transfering Jpeg files is pretty fast...and even if it took twice as long with a slower card than a faster card... 100 full size images from you SX would still upload in less than 5 minutes = not a very long time. But the difference in the cost of faster cards can be quite significant .

I also own an SX10 IS...I use a good size (8GB) standard speed Sandisk SD card..I used to have a bunch of smaller cards and sold them with another camera.. I never fill it up before getting a chance to upload the pictures I want to save, so a 4GB card (or two) would be adequate for me.

Kingston is fine. Sandisk and Lexar are fine. I haven't heard any compliants about the reliabiity of any brand name SD (or CF) card. But "they say" (whoever "they" is)...that Sandisk and Lexar are the better cards. I have used and never had a problem with Kingston or Transcend or the Lexar and Sandisk cards I have now.....(those are all I can remember having owned and used).

Peace,
D.


Wow, what a nice picture! You must have a really great camera!

makes sense. so the lower fps cameras may not benefit. but transferring from the card to computer would be faster
