Re: Which Memory Card for FZ200?
In reply to dragonheart9, 11 months ago

I had similar thoughts. I have several Class 10 cards: 8, 16 and 32GB. I tend not to do long periods at 5fps so buffer full has not been a problem yet. But I expect to exercise the FZ200 a little more this year. So, just in case, I was tempted by this recent offer from Amazon. http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B009ZBUQQ8/ref=pe_385721_37038051_TE_3p_dp_1

The card arrived yesterday and your post prompted me to try it. Just tried it, with current Class 10 Pro card (albeit 7dayshop,com own brand) and with the Toshiba UHS-I card. In A mode at ISO400 and 5.5Fps I pressed the shutter button, after about 5 seconds the frame drops, let it go on for another 5 seconds, then let finger off. Write indicator stopped after another 6 seconds. The UHS-I card made no difference to slow down at 5 seconds and the write indicator maybe when out a second earlier with the UHS-I card.  Overall, I think the UHS-I card does no real difference.  Not a  big investment for me and the card might make a difference on some future camera.
