Workable?

Has anyone tested this card?

Yes I have..
The card is to slow. It had media restore errors.
But, for the life of me, I can't remember if I was using the AFT which I determined
gave the media restore errors.
So it may work? But, I doubt it will overcrank anywhere near 40FPS. This means it would have
to sustain datarates near 8.5MB/s.

The safe bet is to stick with the Ultra II 15MB/s cards for a bit more $$.
It's safer to stick with the SDHC cards that have the headroom to allow some overcrank; otherwise,
you could be "hanging on the edge" of the card working in HQ mode.

Brian, what does this imply?

Does it work with the Kensington?
If so, what's the highest it can overcrank at 24P?

Can anyone tell me the difference between the Sandisk ultra II 15/mbs 16GB Class 2
and the similar Class 4 version? The Class 4 one is all I can find in Tokyo.

You mean Class 4 is the one you havent heard of right?
The Sandisk card mentioned at the top of this page are Class 2. The C mark with a 2 in the centre and available from BH for around $45US. The ones Im finding in Akihabara Tokyo are Class 4 and about double the price.

There are also 30mb/s and 40mb/s cards out here. Has anyone tried these more expensive cards? Would they be suited for overcrank? A 40mb/s 16GB goes for around $250US.

No, I meant what I wrote.

I've never heard of the Ultra II 15MB/s class 2. I've only seen (and own) the class 4.

I have continued to test the Ultra IIs at 720x30p with 60fps overcranking without a single failure... just for the record. Real world testing, not unrealistic stuff like filling a card with slo mo for no reason.

Yes, you can overcrank 30P at 60FPS, not 24P.

I just think that is awesome though. Sorry to keep bringing it up but it basically means I will never need a SxS card as I don't like shooting in 24p. :)
