    Hi everybody,

    Somewhere I readed that class10 is enough for the X100. Otherwhere People said the UHS1 gives more speed to the camera.

    Is there one that can or have tested the 2 different cards and can tell me/us if it is really a speed update to buy a very expensive UHS1?

    I hope one of the lucky soon owner can tell me more.

    Greetings

    Good question I was wondering the same thing. I sent a message to the Fuji Guys.

    So far as I know, the x100 supports UHS-1.
    Therefor I wouldn't hesitate to buy one, because writing speed is far better.

    But if you never use burst mode, Class 10 should be ok.

    My x100 hasn't arrived yet. So I couldn't test it.

    Here's an SD card speed comparison which was made on the X100. It appears that card speed is also relevant if you just shoot single raw + JPG files.

    I've ordered a Sandisk Extreme Pro Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) UHS-I Memory Card - 16GB - 45 MB/s (300X) for only £54.99 from My link

    I don't think that very expensive and certainly a bargain compared to what some shops are charging for these cards

    I can find the Sd cards in a swiss onlineshop for this price:

    Patriot SDHC 16 Gb for 34 Swiss francs ( 37$/22.60£)
    Sandisk Extreme Pro Secure UHS-1 16Gb for 75 Swiss francs (81.62$/49.98£)


    UHS-1 more than double price and I find itexpensive....


    Edit: the patriot is class10

    Wish I have seen that comparison a little sooner. I have two 16GB Sandisk Extreme HD Video, Class 6, 20 MB/s, just waiting for the X100 to arrive. I didn't realize that the difference is that much, but I learn some new stuff every day. I guess they will be OK for street and casual shooting.
    Have just ordered a 16GB Sandisk Extreme Pro (SDHC) UHS-I for DKR 500.00, that's about €67.00/£59.00, and will be using it for more demanding jobs, like weddings, concerts etc.

    Thank you for the enlightenment

    It's clear that the UHS-I is a bit better, but I can't justify the cost.

    Mm, yes, extremely expensive. Over triple a Class 10.

    I'm definitely going to get a UHS-I card - I think the price diffrence is well worth it. I have to pay the price difference once, and it amortises itself with every shot that I won't miss - that doesn't sound like to bad a deal to me. Anyway, it will also help if you shop around for the card. Price differences between high street shops and the internet are substantial.

    Perhaps, for you "Sandisk" doesn't mean anything, but I use their cards for many years and have no problems. I am willing to pay a few tens of dollars (a few percent of the price of the camera) to avoid problems in the future. And I want to get my expensive camera to work as quickly as possible.

    Despite having paid many times the premium for UHS-I here in Iceland that practically anywhere else, no one will "miss" a shot with a class 10, or even 6 for that matter. It has a buffer, the card speed just speeds up the emptying of said buffer. It will always be ready for a 2nd, 3rd, or even 4th shot with any speed card.

    I bought one myself, but not under the auspices of not missing a shot, I just wanted the fastest one in case it was annoying waiting for stuff to clear, and I didn't have any SD cards already, so I figured "go big or go home" :)

    Got my UHS-1 today, shooting JPEG + Raw the time from shot to review went from 7+ secs with a class 6 20MB/s card to about 3 secs on the UHS-1

    I ordered an 8gb Extreme Pro for this camera and a couple of 16gbs for the GH2's. I figure with the X100 only being 12mp an 8gb card will hold a ton.

    I'm sure an 8gig card will be fine but it's worth remembering that the RAW files from the X100 are just about 20MB, a lot more than Nikon RAWs

    And not too long ago people laughed at how slow sd cards were (compared to cf cards) i guess the ability to shoot hd video on new cameras is pushing manufacturers to new speed standards. So far that your cardreader becomes the bottleneck...

    The Uhs-1 is definitely faster. Using it with my x100 right now. It's still slow at 2-3 seconds. The camera freezes up all of it's buttons. Sigh.
