Fujifilm FinePix X100 SD Card Speeds
There is going to be a lot of talk about the "speed" of the X100 while writing to the SD card. The camera allows you to keep shooting while it writes to the card - but the menu functions and any adjustments are frozen until the image is done writing to the SD card. So with that in mind photographers may want to take a look at what speed their SD card is rated at. I just did a quick test with my camera while recording RAW+JPEG Fine and the speed was at least 25% faster with the Class 6 over Class 2. I found this chart online so I assume it's close to accurate and of course a decent overview. I had to break out my loupe to see the class markings on some of the cards!
