    Memory card speed

    My digital camera's recovery is very slow. Would it help if I use a newer
    faster memory card?

  2. What kind of camera is it?

    Possibly but only if your camera supported the faster speeds, what sort is
    it and what card are you currently using?

    And what file type have you set the camera to produce? If your camera
    supports
    procuding TIFF files, and you are using the largest number of pixels (as you
    probably)
    should), the files can be quite large. In fact one may completely fill the
    camera's
    internal RAM buffer, and you may be forced to wait until the file is written
    to the
    card before you can continue.

    My experience with a Minolta S404 (4 MP) and Panasonic FZ20 (5 MP), is that
    the write time for full sized JPEGs (as opposed to TIFFs) is negligable.
    Since the
    camera's internal memory can store a number of JPEGs, unless I'm shooting
    a long burst, I effectively have no wait. If I try TIFFs, that's another
    matter entirely.

    Hope that helps.
