I read on this forum a few years back that someone had asked canon if it was worth buying higher speed cards for their P&S cams. Canon's response was supposedly that it would NOT make any difference because the limiting factor was write speed of the camera hardware.

Canon (supposedly) said it does matter for DSLR because of the better hardware, but would only be noticeable during burst shooting. Or something to that effect, I can't remember exactly.
This was before HD video capability was becoming mainstream.

I'm not sure where these high-end P&S and mirrorless cameras fall within this range of SD card writing capability.

You'd hope that it (the G1X) would have a higher performance than lesser P&S models, but sadly it appears not to be the case. No wonder the raw file write times are slow compared to an SLR.

To err is Human. To really foul things up you need a computer.
