Hello. First, I want to thank those who provide this forum. There are those of us who know very little about the new ¨Digital age¨ and I am one of the many who gets lost in the ocean of new digital formats, F stops, ect...
To expand on the original prosters question, I also just ordered a Panasonic DMC-TZ5, mostly for vacations and trips. I also ordered a second camera, a Panasonic DMC-FS5 for my wife to carry and use around town and at the house.
I am LOST regarding memory cards. I understand more GB = more photo storage per card but regarding card speed, the processor in the camera´s ect is where I get lost. So here are my questions.
1. Since the TZ5 also shoots HD video, would a 16MB class 6 card be what I need for this camera regarding not only speed but storage space of both video and still photos?
2. While on a vacation, using the TZ5, is one 16MB card usually enough or do most people carry more than one 16MB card?
3. If I am using a SDHC class 6 in the TZ5, will this same card also work in the FS5?
Thanks in advance for your opinions. I am sure I will have other questions in the future about the TZ5. One example is the graph, called a histo..something. I have no clue what that is or why one would look at it on the screen while taking a photo.
