I am looking at buying a new memory card. I was wondering what is the max processing speed of my sony a100? I am trying to keep from purchasing a faster card than my camera can use. Thanks

Don should be along pretty soon, but I'm guessing a 60x card such as the Sandisk Ultra II would be fine.

With my A-100, I have a SanDisk III and a basic 1x Lexar I have found that even using RAW, they both record as fast as I can take pictures. I suppose there is a read difference, but that isn't too important to me.

My advice, if you have an A100, ignore card speed and get what you can afford.

If you really care, look at this web site for card speed tests and a host of info specific to the A-100 (and Konica Minoltas)
