Fair enough so a repeatable test of this, is just hold the trigger down for 30 seconds and see how many shots. With the CF I got 100 shots and with SD only 52. So with an even faster card we are possibly getting to the point where the buffer size is less of an issue, where the camera is able to write to the card almost as fast as the buffer. Also demonstrates the need for a fast card in the first place.

Thanks for your effort. With my Sandisk Ultra II Iwas only able to get 40 shots in 30 seconds. I never realized how much the card speed played into the shooting. I shoot a lot of birds while out fishing on the lake. I think it is time for a faster card.

It would be nice if some of your detractors could post their numbers done their way. Perhaps they have none to post.
