High Speed CF for C-5060???

Recommended Posts

Has anybody explored the capability of the Olympus C-5060 to utilize the faster write speed capabilities of a high speed compact flash card such as the SanDisk Ultra card?

 

I'll be shooting RAW, by the way.

 

If I don't find an answer, I'll borrow a card and do a comparison myself, reporting back to y'all.

Camera lock time after taking 1 RAW picture:

 

SanDisk Ultra II 1GB => 8s

 

Viking (more than two years old) 512MB => 10s

I also have been experimenting with different kinds of cards, and have realized that the 5060 does not use the full capability of the card. The so called high speed cards are only marginally faster in a 5060. I just bought a 1GB 40x card on ebay for 45. It is around 1 second slower writing RAW's than my 512MB Ultra II card which I paid $90 for 6 months ago.

 

Is the extra money worth the slight increase in speed? That's up to you.
