I have a 1.3mPixel camera that came with an 8mb card. It held about 40 pictures with that card.
I chose this 128mb card over a 64mb card because I figured that it was a better value. With the 128Mb card, my camera now holds nearly 600 pictures. But the problem is that it takes 6-8 seconds to save between shots. It used to only take about 1 second for the same image size.
I'm pretty sure this is due to the access time of the large card size. Had I known this, I would have bought a 64mb card instead, since the ability to store 250-300 photos would have been just fine, and I'm figuring it would have saved images much faster.
this is something you might want to consider when buying a media card upgrade for your camera. Personally. I'd rather have the ability to take shots faster.
One of the cards worked beautifully. It's incredibly convenient to be able to fit over 200 images on one card!
The other card worked for a few weeks, then produced a "disk error," which meant it couldn't take any more pictures, and that the 100 or so that were on it are not readable! Very worrying.
I emailed Sandisk and they replied that they cannot help, and suggested that I get in touch with a file recovery company (which will cost me almost $100). I don't know if I'll be able to get those 100 pictures back yet.
I'm disappointed because I think Sandisk should help me more with recoving the files or at least have more resources to help me do it myself. My local camera retailer says that other manufacturers are far more helpful when these problems arise.
2 thoughts for people considering buying these cards:
1 - It's worth it to pay a little more for a card from a company that will support its products.
2 - It's better to buy 2 64 Meg disks than 1 128 to reduce the chance of having an error like this happen.
