I see that there is something wrong with my question
. Either noone knows (is noone using S5 IS?) or there is some obvious FAQ that explains it.
Could anyone comment on this (e.g. with a link to this 'mystical' FAQ)? I would really like to buy a large card that I could use on S5... I would not have asked if I had a good source of information on this.....
Prior to asking on the Forum, I filed a support to Canon but the answer was highly unsatisfactory (use max. 4 GB). I also searched the Internet only to find one post on one forum informing that 8GB works but is very slow. My way of thinking about it is that any compliant SDHC hardware should support any SDHC card. The only problem might be in too big cluster size of FAT32. It is not clear to me, why there could be a slowdown with 8GB card. I presume it should be otherwise, as we are dealing with large files and hence a big cluster size should be the advantage.
Would any Canon PowerShot S5 IS owner post the capacity of his card. Thank you.
