SD memory card for camera - best brand?

  Carafaraday 12:36 03 Dec 2006

Is there a 'best' brand for SD cards, or do I just go for the cheapest?

carafaraday,i would advise you to use a well known make,Sandisk which i use would be one of the best also Lexar is very good.Try here for some very good prices. click here=

I use the cheapest and have never had a problem but even branded ones if you wish to use them are not much more expensive, consider Sandisk as they have a good reputation and have a look here click here

Any of the top brands will suffice but speed is also important depending on use. You'll find examples of SD cards of different speeds at:

Stuartli, that's a good point. I never considered the question of speed - only reliability.

How do I know the speed?

Where to buy is less important than what to buy at this stage................

If you look at the examples in the 7DayShop link you will see the various speeds available in some of the cards' listing.

Stuartli, thanks for the link. I have looked at the Sandisk ones which seem to vary from 9mbs write/10mbs read, to 20mbs. One card is also listed as 133X. (The Fuji card gives no details about speed that I can see). To be honest I'm not sure that I am any the wiser. Can you give me some sort of guidance as to what I should be looking for? It's for an entry level digital camera, and for viewing photos on tv through DVD player (with dedicated SD socket).
