Let's get on with why I'm posting.
I have a Panasonic FZ28. If I shoot in Jpeg I can take a pic and bam ready to take another one. Now when I goto Raw it's slower. It's slow enough where I'm like ok click.. hold on, one second ok... here we go and then it takes the pic. Am I memory card limited or is this my camera? I'd like to start using Jpeg+raw with that the lag would be horrendous. 5 seconds or more. And if you are into photography that is too long.
I'm using a class 6 Trancend now and I noticed they have a new Class 10.
Now my confusion is based on a few things
1) is my camera the factor slowing down the pictures? Raw+jpeg averages about 20mb of information
2)Sustained vs maximum rate memory cards (does maximum mean it can do that speed for short times)
3)Class 10, gimmick or worth it? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820211395

I had a kodak a few years back that took a good few seconds to compose itself after shooting a RAW image. I'm no expert but I would assume it's both in your case. I have a very very generic CF card in my XTI (i dont even know the speed) but it only takes a second or 2 shooting RAW. Spose one day Ill have to try a faster card to see the difference..as far as whether class 10 is worth it or not, I'll pass on that as I have no clue.sorry

The total MB in 9.6 seconds was 56mb. Now when I shoot in Raw. I can shoot 2 pictures in 10 seconds.....Each picture is about 14.5mb.
So I'm assuming it has something to do with the buffer or processor of the camera? Since I can only write half as fast in raw when the files are 5 times as big.
