    Sandisk extreme

    Hi,

    I'm just wondering if someone has tested the new Sandisk Extreme class 10 30MB/s ?  I'm not sure if the class 10 will be compatible with my old S5...

    Should I be safe and purchase a Extreme III class 6 30MB/s ?

    What's the speed limitation on the internal camera buffer? ...there is no point to buy something flashy if the camera can't write fast enough! :blink:

    I'm trying to improve my bracketing RAW shooting performance.

    Cheers,
    Ced.

    The higher speed shouldn't hurt anything. No idea whether it will benefit.
    Don't forget what the H stands for.

    I've bought this card, I've updated the benchmarks page.

    For my S5: SanDisk Extreme Class 10 30Mb/s 4GB (FAT16)
    RAW write21487
    Mem write8777
    Write 64k6475
    Read 64k9002

    The numbers are a bit low in comparison of the other Extreme/Ultra III...  :(

    I've used Linux to format my card:
     - fdisk by creating a primary FAT16 partition
     - mkdosfs -v -F 16 /dev/sdc1
     - echo -n BOOTDISK | dd bs=1 count=8 seek=64 of=/dev/sdc1

    Anything I could do/improve the performance?

    I've created a FAT12 (1M) partition and fill the rest with a FAT32:
    Code: [Select]
    Disk /dev/sdc: 3965 MB, 3965190144 bytes
    49 heads, 48 sectors/track, 3292 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 2352 * 512 = 1204224 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x00000000

       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sdc1   *           1           2        2328    1  FAT12
    /dev/sdc2               3        3292     3869040    b  W95 FAT32

    I've formatted both partitions like this:
    Code: [Select]
    mkdosfs -v -F 12 -f 1 /dev/sdc1
    mkdosfs -v -F 32 -s 64 -f 1 /dev/sdc2

    Here are the numbers:
    RAW write21487
    Mem write8714
    Write 64k10051
    Read 64k9153

    The SD Formatter http://www.sdcard.org/consumers/formatter_3/ uses 32K as cluster size so I've used the same value for the FAT32 partition.

    The "Write 64K" has increased but I don't know if it's going to make any difference.

    Maybe you could follow a more practical approach. To check if you improved the bracketing RAW shooting performance, keep the shutter pressed for say 60sec and count the number of pictures.
