Re: Tip to speed up writing times for the a580 (maybe for a55 and other models too)

Hi guys,

i just found out that i have must made a mistake on some point.

I formated the card in camera (forgot that by this i would lose exfat fomation) and reformated it in the card reader with exfat 32kb. I was not sure if that was the Cluster size i had chosen before so i tested it - with the same slow result i had with fat32. I now checked the following sizes (the lower ones twice)

1
2

4
8
16
32
64
128
512
8192

(all exfat format under Win8 64)

and everywhere the same results of ~50sec if not slower.

I really can't imagine what went wrong in the first place , but i know i checked it twice with a stopwatch. Maybe for some reasons the pictures i took for the first test where better compressable and had smaller sizes(i tested out of focus,iso 100, a bit smaller but noch much) ? Maybe there are faster and slower parts on the memorycard?

Sorry so much for false information (it looks like it) and for raising hopes of faster writing speeds.
