Just signed on to the forum and have a question.

This may have as many answers as there are viewers, but here goes. What are some opinions as to the best SD card to use in my sx40?

Thanks in advance,

John

remember buy at least a class 6 card if you plan to do HD video. also regarding brands, whatever you buy, buy from a reputable merchant. plenty of fake cards on ebay and amazon's 3rd party merchants. amazon has some great deals but only buy if its sold by "amazon.com"

Class 10. Go mid-range. Going fast is not likely to pay off -as most cameras can't use the faster speeds of the card itself- but it does help with downloading when using a reader.

I tend to go mid range- currently- about the 30mb/sec to 40mb/sec for SDHC cards. Only time I would go slower would be maybe the eye-fi card- or if I am putting the card into a picture frame.

Sandisk, or Lexar. I might consider a PNY. Brand names- and off from only reputable dealers- no ebay /fleabay crap.
When I buy cards for a camera- usually I get two cards- nowadays.. One - 32G- the main card ( or 16G ) and a second one- usually 1/2 the size.. When I fill up the first- I know its time to slow down.
