[Nature Recordists] Re: Start time for Sony PCM-M10 with memory card

Subject: [Nature Recordists] Re: Start time for Sony PCM-M10 with memory card

Peter I have just tested my M10,

I have a Sandisk 16GB card which apparently is a "C2" (never looked at that 
before !). It takes an average of 8 secs from slidng the power button to the 
Rec button being ready to activate. As for the C2 class: I have never had a 
read/write issue with this machine.

However the M10 takes such little battery power that once I switch it on it 
stays there for as long as I am out with it (usually 5-6 hours, maybe up to 8), 
after that I only need to use my thumb to hit record and pause (I usually have 
a parabola in the other hand), I get days of use out of a decent brand of AAs 
that way. Its the sliding power switch that slows my reactions down.

Hope this helps, I have no other size card to test it with I'm afraid.
