My september departure date draws near and soon I shall be bound for Japan..
Ki wo tsukete, Nihonjin-tachi !
( heehee...I'm actually quite inocuous for an American...I just wanna learn Japanese...)
So I've purchased a new digital camera. It's a realatively cheap $100 (on sale from $180 ) 5.1mp afair. Upon being questioned, both the camera sales rep, and the memory card rep said that using high(er) speed cards in a camera like this (read: in a camera this cheap) wouldn't make much difference and would basically amount to overspending.
But these were FRY'S reps, so I take it with a grain of salt (having been such an individual fro a VERY brief time myself).
But as I stood gazing into the flash media display case I noticed 2 SD cards...among others of course.
Both were 512MB, but one was 60x and the other was 120x. The latter was $60, only $10 more than the 60x. True, the reps said that the camera couldn't really benefit from faster media, but my question to all of you is...
...can the Zaurus ?
I already purchsed a 512MB SD for my C1000 back right when I recqived it. This was a few months ago, so it was definitely one of the older 26x or whatever the standard was around march...it certainly isn't marked Hi-Speed. But if my cheap camera isn't gonna care one way or the other I'll gladly throw that card in the canera and purchase a new one for my Z.
Upgrading to 1 gig is kind of tempting, but no matter what capacity I end up buying, I'm curious if the Zaurus can benefit from faster speed SD media...particularly for movie playback. If it is a real improvement I'll probably go for it, even though the warranty on the slower card was litteraly 5 times longer...
Any advice/info you guys care to share is appreciated!
