From wikipedia

Speed Class Rating
The Speed Class Rating is the official unit of speed measurement for SD Cards, defined by the SD Association. The Class number represents a multiple of 8 Mb/s (1 MB/s), and meets the least sustained write speeds for a card in a fragmented state.[12]
These are the ratings of some currently available cards:[12]
Class 0 cards do not specify performance, which includes all legacy cards prior to class specifications.
Class 2, 2 MB/s, slowest for SDHC cards.
Class 4, 4 MB/s.
Class 6, 6 MB/s.
Class 10, 10 MB/s.

Class 4 good for most things, i have the 8gb version and it captures HD video fine
#6
this was rejected by panasonic camera tz7, too slow

Good price. I have two of these Play.com class 4 cards and they work fine in my HD Panasonic HDC-HS9 Camcorder and my Fuji Finepix HS10 camera. I think they are made by Toshiba.

Class 4 on the card, but tested mine and came out at 9.1MB/s, so actually very close to being class 10.
Records 1080p video on my HS10 without any problems.

Rubbish, I have the same camera, using the 4gb class 4 Play.com card and it worked fine......

Sadly it means that SD cards don't live in a meritocracy.

That's a very ambiguous statement as it all depends on the video's bitrate, my camera needs at least Class 6 to function properly recording 1080p.

You get what you pay for. You can loose your entire vacation in an instant. Does that worth a few quid savings?

9.1average perhaps but thats irrelevant in terms of class, fact that it can record 1080p is more reassuring though
id still go for the transcend though

I bought the Transcend card first, every now and then recording HD vids fail after a few minutes.
Tested the card and came out with an average write speed of 4.3MB/s (Fuji recomment 4MB/s minimum for HD recording on the HS10, was was barely good enough on paper), so I'd avoid that one for HD recording to be honest.

It's not faulty, other people have had the same issue. The card simply can't cope with the data rate when recording 1080p video. Works perfectly for photos and up to 720p video.
So it's only really any issue for people looking to record 1080p (and as different cameras use different data rates/encoding, 1080p may still work for some).
