If you've got a bunch of memory cards and want to know which one is faster, how do you do it? This guy recorded the sound of the shutter in burst mode, and put them side by side in a sound editing program - the differences become immediately apparent.

I just thought of another way though - you could shoot in burst mode for a specified length of time (e.g. 20 seconds) and just count the number of actuations. Anyway, many ways to skin a cat.
