Fat-16 vs Fat-32 Edit

I was always bummed-out that my more expensive Transcend 150x card was always doggedly slow compared to a discount Dane-Elec 133x card. Shooting in high-speed burst I'd start getting the "busy" between shots after about 30-40 shots. Then I saw the FAT-16 formatted speed on the list here for the Transcend 4GB card and thought I'd try it. On one of the benchmark tests it actually surpassed the Dane-Elec card. Otherwise I was always getting speeds similar to those listed here for the FAT-32 Transcend 1GB card.

Suffice to say, if anyone has a 4GB card, they might want to try the FAT-16 formatting on it, not only for the boot feature but for an extra 40% increase in speed.

Here is another SD card Benchmark run for A620 Edit

I ran the Benchmark test with my A620 using a SanDisk Extreme III - 1Gb.

Write(RAW)= 9681
Write(Mem)= 9239
Write(64k)= 5104
Read(64k)= 6090

Can someone add this to this listed Benchmark results?

Adding summary Edit

Maybe we could add a small conclusion/summary, eg warning people that it is useless to buy a card faster than 66X with a DIGIC II camera, because it will never go faster than 10MB/s / 66X ? Cyril42e 22:14, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Dark frame subtraction Edit

Who says it doesn't matter? It matters, it doubles the exposure time! LjL 14:01, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Glossary/explanation of units Edit

  • Are larger numbers 'better'? Are smaller numbers 'better'? (I know, it can be seen from kb/s that larger numbers are better, but I think it'd still help)
  • Maybe fill the background of the 'best' card in each camera green? 17:14, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
