Hi

I was just wondering what the recommended rating would be for a 8gb SDHC card in my S95?

I've been using a cheap, standard card rated at '2' which a imagine would be bit slow when it comes to transfer speeds?

Also, would it be more important to use a higher rated card when using in video mode?

Thanks, Glyn.

:)

Yes, a faster card will help speed up downloads from a card reader. It probably won't make as much difference in shooting unless you like to shoot in burst mode. And if you plan to do HD video, the Class 2 card will only give you a few seconds before the buffer fills up. Canon recommends at least Class 6 if you want to get rated video duration out of the camera.
