Hi all there,
I recently bought an Olympus E-500.
As I already have a couple of Fuji cameras, I thought I might buy a 1 gig XD card for the E-500.
I did this thinking that if I needed to, I could put the 1 gig XD in the Fuji.
That was my first impression of the (high speed XD card)
WoW how F***ing slow is this card !!!
I did a comparison.
I put the 1gig (high speed XD card) in my E-500 and did a format.....
45 seconds it took.
I put both my 1gig Sandisk ExtreemIII and my Lexar 1gig pro in my E-500 and did a format
It took less than 4 seconds with either.
I then looked at writing RAW photo's
I didn't realise XD cards were so S L O W
Any comments on this ?
Flame if you must (but you will loose )
Cheers in good faith
