I posted last week about getting my first high speed CF card. I was not disappointed. I shot photos at the Phillies game for their opening weekend. It was very cold Friday and Saturday but the weather was made up for by seeing our team again, especially Cliff Lee. Now…back to CF cards!
When at the games I generally shoot between 600-800 shots, mainly due to the fact that on most plays I am shooting in burst mode, and capture between 6-12 photos each burst. In the past I previously filled the buffer at around 8-9 photos, but with the new San Disk 8GB 400x card I was able to get that figure up to 12-13 before the buffer was filled up. I was shooting in high quality jpeg format at 15.1 MP, and definitely saw an improvement in performance. I am considering purchasing another new card. If you are finding that your camera’s buffer is filling up before you can get the burst of shots you want then maybe try upgrading your memory card.
