Hello everyone I am not new to photography I have been into it for over 5 years now. I currently own a Cannon Powershot SX20 IS and just got into really working with the custom settings in the camera. I have been using the continuous shutter mode and I really like it because you just hold down the shutter button and it continuously takes pictures one after another (obviously due to the name haha). Anyways I just needed to know if getting a faster SD card will improve the speed of the camera taking pictures? I currently have a Transcend 16gb class 10 that wrights at 20mbs unfortunately my camera does not shoot in raw format so I understand compressing the photo to jpeg takes a little time. I just need to know if my camera compressing the picture is the problem or is it the speed of the wrights of the sd card?

I understand that but just because its class 10 does not mean its the fastest that's a misconception. Transcend has several class 10 cards and some wright at 20mbs some wright at 45mbs and some wright at 90+mbs so thats why I am asking. My camera is set to always wright to the sd card first so yea thats not it. I am just confused because my sd card is 20mbs wright and my photos are only 3mb in size.
