View Full Version : Memory Card Speed

09-15-2007, 21:51

I have a few technical questions for all of the digital camera experts out there. Does the type of memory card your camera uses impact its' performance ?? I am considering a new Canon that accepts "SD/SDHC Memory Card, MultiMediaCard, MMC Plus Card, HC MMC Plus Card". Is there a difference between using a SD card vs. a MMC card ? Is there a noticable difference between a MMC and MMC Plus card ? Do the HC card perform at the same speed as the regular ones ??

My current set-up is an Olympus C-8080 which I think takes wonderful pictures. My only complaint about it is the shutter lag and time lag between shots. The newer cameras seem to be more responsive and are better adapted to shooting "action shots". I just want to make sure that I get the best performance that I can.
