Writing speed is very important on SD card as you don’t want your SLR camera to miss any shot. 8GB PenDrive SDHC Class 4 Card is another SD card bundled from my Panasonic HDC-SD700 HD Camcorder. PenDrive is a Malaysia brand. Let’s see how a local company product performs.
I had 2 SDHC cards bundled when bought Panasonic HDC-SD700 HD Camcorder. Both of them are 8GB Class 4 SDHC cards. I was thinking… Can they able to perform well on that camcorder with at least 4 MB/s writing speed. Let’s find out. Here is 8GB Transcend SDHC Card Review.
8GB SanDisk microSDHC Class 2 Card is the SD card that came along with my HTC HD2. It is the only SanDisk card that I have. SanDisk is one of the well known flash memory manufacturer. Its cards are good but not cheap. Let’s benchmark 8GB SanDisk microSDHC Class 2 Card and find out its performance.
8GB Kingston 133X Elite Pro Compact Flash Card is another that I bought for my Canon EOS 400D SLR camera. I felt its writing speed was slower than 2GB Transcend 120X Compact Flash Card when started to use it. But it should not be since it is 133X compare to 120X which is slower. The speed improved some when I used camera to format it. So I just continue to shot without any concern since Canon EOS 400D SLR camera does not require very high speed CF card. Until now, I discovered a big surprise…
Hehe… I cannot stop myself from benchmarking all the flash memory cards that I have. I took CF card for my Canon EOS 400D SLR for some tests. One of them is 2GB Transcend 120X Compact Flash Card. Based on Compact Flash (CF) Card X-Speed Rating, 120X should have 18 MB/s writing speed. Let’s see how 2GB Transcend 120X Compact Flash Card performs.
