    Last Sunday I took 145 pictures at Fashion Sunday in my hometown.
    Gear: G1 plus 14-45 kitlens.
    Sandisk SD card class 4, 4GB.
    AF set to single shot.
    I noticed that the AF was too slow and the shooting speed was too low.
    What did I "wrong"?
    Maybe I must go for AF continue as well as for a faster SD card?
    Advice and suggestions are welcome, thanks in advance.:thumbup:

    I use only Class 6 SDHC cards, Herman, and I don't have to complain about speed.
    But, then, I rarely use autofocus as I mainly shoot with MF lenses.

    Herman were you using single shot AF because they were walking towards/away from you? Was the light low?
    I know nothing but I'd have been tempted to use 3-shot multifilm and get 3 shots per focus, or leave it on C-AF constant shooting... but I've never even tried to shoot a show.

    Thanks Raf and Ulfric for your replies.:thumbup:
    I think it's better to set autofocus to AFC and use the 3-shot multifilm.
    Light was okay.
    What's exactly the difference between class 4 and 6 of a SD card.
    Which class is recommended for high speed shooting?

    Wikipedia is your friend, Herman :rolleyes:

    SD-kaart - Wikipedia

    Basically, the higher the class, the faster the card can be written on

    Herman : post some of your pictures (good or bad, doesn't matter) so we can get an idea of the situation.

    Thanks Raf and Ulfric for your replies.
    Yip, wikipedia is my friend.:smile:

    I have taken dozens of pictures last Sunday in my hometown during an open air fashion show. I have posted the images at this thread:
    https://www.mu-43.com/f57/show-people-5921/

    I found myself in need of:
    Faster AF
    High speed shooting

    CC welcome, thanks in advance.:thumbup:
