class 4, 6 or 10? Does anyone know?
#2
Shows Class4 in the picture
#3
class 4 in tech spec

When I bought my TZ10 in August last year the stuff I read on the web suggested Class 6 or higher for recording HD Video. I bought an 8gb Sandisk Extreme in the end...
#5
Yeah, most HD 1080p recording states you need at least class 6 :|
#6
OP says "Perfect speed for HD video recording".

As others have said too, Class 6 is min recommended for HD recording and you're best getting a Class 10 card, which won't set you back much more.

I have a class 4 PNY card, records HD perfectly on my FZ38
#9
Yeah class is overrated anyway
#10
Some Info(clicky)

Some more info:

Speed Class 2 : Transfer speed is a minimum of 2MB/sec.

Speed Class 4 : Transfer speed is a minimum of 4MB/sec.

Speed Class 6 : Transfer speed is a minimum of 6MB/sec.

So it would appear class 6 is better then ?

The title of this deal should be changed.

This would be completely useless for recording HD. You need at least class 6 and recommended to use class 10.

Class 4 would struggle with taking photos at a decent speed on a dslr, neverlone video.
#12
Incorrect. Class 4 is fine for HD video (1920x1080) 2.1M pixels. This class race is just in the same bag as the "lets have as many pixels as possible" race. By all means go for class6, 10 etc if you have a super megapixel camera and use the max resolution, though no idea why you would really want to.

My flash memory benchmark software (http://www.flashmemorytoolkit.com/) suggests all the popular SD cards (SanDisk, Transcend, Intregal, etc.) are manufactured by Teac and have much the same speeds. Perhaps the "Class" has more to do with some quality control assessment than maximum speeds.
Any experts that give the low-down would be appreciated but I suspect you have to pay the "big bucks" to obtain any major difference in SD card quality.

Sorry, Class 4 is OK for HD recording, just not for burst / quick shooting with HD camera.

The SD Association which agrees standards for all types of SD cards explains the Class speeds on its website: http://www.sdcard.org/developers/tech/speed_class

arggghhhh claSSS THIS and class that!!!!!!

will no one be happy till they own enough power to take over the world!!!

surely this cards performance is more than good enough for the common person?

and its less than a pound a gig!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
#16
It's class 4 which is too slow for full HD - it will do short clips but not a few minutes worth.
#17
Hi everyone, I want to clarify this issue on this card's class in relation to HD recording. Those who argue that you can not record HD video effectively on this class 4 card is mistaken. I was looking at Fujifilm's website earlier and found that in order to record HD video/photos, a minimum of class 4 is needed. Secondly, there are cards available with a higher class selling at the same price (such as the transcend 16gb sdhc - class10) but the test to determine speed have shown that generally these cards do not read/write as fast as they claim, whereas Sandisc, a reputable brand, is surely likely to be more reliable. For those who want the best of the best and do not mind spending another £50 or so for a Sandisc extreme class 10 16gb - Go ahead, I can assure you it will perform better but I posted this deal as it relates to the website 'Hotdeals' (says it all in its name).

My dad used a class 4 sandick in his Panasonic TZ7 and it stops recording after a minute or so because it's too slow.

Could you please not use inappropriate language, clearly that was no mistake! You would have to check Panasonic's website to check whether a class 4 would be OK to use (common sense, is it not?). If it's not that then I'm afraid the tz10 does not have an efficient format to compact it's data.
#20
Don't buy this slow crap. If you have a SDHC compatible device then go for at least class 10 such as the deal below. If you put it in a camera, you will need to wait longer between pictures (assuming no flash).

Tripe.
SanDisk's tend to be faster than others anyway.
Cheapie makes are poorer quality too.

No wonder it was cheap - look at the size of the thing! would never fit in my camera.

you should see my camera!!! :P

Not for me. I would rather buy the Transcend class 10 one for £17.99 (@ 7dayshop).
#26
A 16 gb card with full hd recording, has a recording time of 2 hr 40 mins

Isn't this poor?
#27
I needed a fast card to record 1080p on a Canon 550D - I use a Class 6 16GB Transcend card with no problem whatsoever. I also have a Kodak Zi6 and can record 720p on a normal SD card, and have 720p at double-speed 60 frames per second working just fine on a Class 4.

Mileage will vary, but obviously the other thing to bear in mind is how quickly you want to copy the data off the card!

It can't be quicker than 8MB/s if it is Class 4. Slow = frustrating. Your choice (you don't have to go for PNY but class 10 at least)
#29
Different manufacturers using different movie formats mean that some cameras may work at class 4 depending on compression and write speeds. Also batches of memory cards will differ in speed so the minimum must be provided.
Easy2BCheesy my EOS550D will not work with a class 4 sandisk extreme (I tried it and it stops after 1 second). The manual it comes with states use class 6 or better for HD.
