Hi everyone..learning and loving my EPL-1. Still in I-auto, but hey i'm learning. Anyway, my question is about our memory card. I have a cat6 installed now. is this necessary? Also, what is the difference between cat6 and cat10? many thanks....
I assume you meant "video" when you typed "film" - showing your age? :smile:
Class 6 is minimum to use for write/transfer speed.
I use class 10 and see a difference between that and class 6. Many here have stated that it doesn't matter what class the card is...dunno, I see a difference.
So, getting started... Use what ya have and don't worry about card upgrade.
Just make sure to format the card everytime you upload the images to the computer.
Well technically you don't have to.Just curious, but why would you need to reformat your SD card each time you upload images to your computer?
Yes, but, caveat ! SSD have a built in controller dedicated to even up the wear among the whole disk. Each memory cell has a write/delete limit after which it becomes "stuck" and it's better to spread r/w to avoid frequently addressed bytes to become useless really quickly.Some people have noticed that it slows down after a lot of write/deletes. There was a minor discussion on some thread here about that before. I think the high level consensus / guess is that it suffers from the same issue that solid state hard drives do with continuous writing / deleting - the summary is that SSD HD's slow down after using them for a while until you reformat them. (we won't split hairs about trim and other work around attempts at speeding this issue up). So, we kind of extrapolated that the same solution of formatting the SD cards would help like formatting the SSD HD's.
