    The S5 says that it will save photos to sd, except if they're burst shots. What are those? How do I make them go to sd anyway?

    I'm pretty certain that you can't.
    Saving them to the MSD, vs the internal storage, would take too long, between shots, to process.
    Your best option would be that when you find the "Best" pic of the lot, to manually move it to a folder on the MSD.

    AFAIK writing to micro-SD is significantly slower than writing to internal storage. And could be Samsung has determined micro-SDs have an insufficient write speed for burst mode. And Samsung should know as they make the things.

    That is definitely still the case.. I've personally noticed that while sdcards claim to be ultra fast, data is still very easily corrupted. I've been thru a few SanDisks and Extreme Pro's by simply increasing r/rw speeds above the 128k/s mark but still well under its purported max speeds and I really haven't to this day gotten my hands on an sdcard I feel would solidly hold up to the intense function of internal storage speeds. There are also tons of available threads about ppl being surprised that their expensive sdcards foul so early when being used as internal storage.. for reference to the curious.
