Higher the class number the faster the card works.

yep as the above poster said. Check your appliance as SDHC cards do not work on all things

its how fast the data gets written to the card. I've got a 8gb sdhc class 10.

Class 2, 2 MB/s
Class 4, 4 MB/s
Class 6, 6 MB/s
Class 10, 10 MB/s

mines 12mp as well, if you take a 12mp photo with a class 2 card, its going to take longer to write the data to the card compared to a class 10. I wanted to take picture's & be able to take another without waiting for the 1st pic to be written to the card, also my camera takes HD video so I wanted a higher class card.
