Powershot A610/620 Digital Memory Write Speed

  1. Does anyone know what is the highest speed the Canon powershot
    A610/A620 can write to a Secure Digital memory card?

    ie, would a 150X SD card be better than a 60X card, or would I just be
    wasting my money if the camera can't write at 150X?

  2. According to http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canona620/page5.asp , the
    A620 writes at about 3 MB/sec. 1X==150 KB/sec, so the camera can make
    full use of 20X cards; faster cards won't buy you additional speed on
    the camera.

    However, if you use a card reader to transfer images to your computer,
    you might get faster downloads with faster cards.
