I was wondering if anyone has tried multiple cards in the FZ200 to find out just how fast it needs to be to make the camera as fast as possible? I bought a kit that looks like it includes a generic class 10 32GB card and I am considering buying a new one that is rated at 600x class 10 UHS-I made by transcend for about $29 USD. But if it won't make any difference besides reading it into the computer faster using a usb 3.0 card reader, I won't worry about it.
I read that some people using the high speed video modes, like 720p at 120fps had problems with it getting a write error on slower cards after about 15 seconds since the card couldn't keep up with the writing of the video, but I believe this was with a class 6 card they were trying to use. The camera users manual says it is compatible with Class 10 UHS-I, but a lot of times that just means it will work, not that it is necessarily better. It says it requires a class 4 or higher when recording motion pictures, but then I read about someone with a class 6 not being fast enough in some cases. I hope someone out there has tested some different cards and that you can help enlighten me on the subject. Maybe someone knows a place that tested different cards in the FZ200 and you could point me in that direction.
I have found reviews on various new UHS-I cards, but that doesn't really matter since I know it doesn't need the fastest class 10 UHS-I card there is, since it says it should work with a class 4. I really just want to feel confident that I can get all of the performance out of the camera that I can without slower burst speed or getting video errors unlike people with a faster card.
