between type H and type M ?

I'vee seen both advertised, but far more of the type M, so Igeuess that's what most devices use.

I just wonder whether they are interchangeable?

Anyone know?

Type H is faster read and write speeds than type M, yes they are interchangeable.

I ran a few home tests on the two different types for a couple of other members who were asking the same thing, the speed difference in real time is not to much different.

I took 5 shots and timed how long it took to finish writing to each of the card's, tried it several times and always got the same results, the H type came out around 15% faster.

So unless shooting a lot of rapid fire shots like sports etc it is really negligible, having said that i would go for the H type now as there is no price difference.
