X100 writes speeds [Initial findings]
Mar 9, 2011

I got the X100 this morning, and the write speeds were a major concern for me after reading some of the hands on reviews. I have two cards available for test.

Card A:
Sandisk 8GB Class 4

https://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-SDHC-Secure-Digital-Card/dp/B000VUVA62/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1299680125&sr=8-1

Card B
Trancsend 8B Class 6

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Transcend-Digital-High-Capacity-Version-TS8GSDHC6/dp/B000MWW7HA/ref=sr_1_6?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1299680190&sr=1-6

This was a very basic test to see if the write speeds improve with a better card. The times below specify the duration from shutter being pressed to write indicator ceasing to flash.

Single shot mode 1 RAW frame - Card A = 12.1secs Card B = 8.4secs
Single shot mode 3 RAW frames - Card A = 22.1secs Card B = 13.4secs
Bust mode (8 RAW frames) - Card A = 44.6secs Card B = 29.8secs

Based on this information I have ordered a class 10 (30MB/s) card, and I am hoping for significant improvement.
