The one from Play for the same price is a faster card, class 4

Thanks, made use of the HUKD voucher I forgot to use last time I bought something from Amazon!

well pointed out...!

A good price for a named brand; but this is a class 2 card - the class 6 ]Play card at £17.99 or the Veho ]at eBuyer for £18.50ish might be a better deal if you want performance.

If it's being used in a camera it will make very little difference. Most cameras can't saturate the bandwidth provided by a slow card.

Yes but when you download the photos with a cardreader it will be alot faster :thumbsup:

Even better, 7dayshop have a Class 6 Kingston at £16.99

"Most cameras can't saturate the bandwidth provided by a slow card." - depends on the camera; the biggest difference is likely to show up in movie mode. RTFM.

Of course But some might not care for £2

Whilst there is knowledge about speed of cards being spread, I will take the opportunity to ask a question of those with better knowledge than me on these things.

Would using a Micro SDHC card in an adapter work at the same speed as a standard sized SDHC card of the same capacity (presuming of course that they are of the same speed class)?

I'm not sure that's true at all - certainly DSLRs will saturate a slow card and even advanced compacts might see an effect. My Fuji S8000 stores images shot in burst mode much faster on my Class 6 SDHC than on my old 1Gb card.

That's why I said most cameras My D70s certainly likes fast CF cards but most point and shoot compacts won't care.

The Play.com Class 4 card is the same price and in theory significantly faster.

What, not even when reviewing pictures?

£14.41 - Transcend 8GB with lifetime warranty and it is CLASS 6!!!!! 1.99 p&p makes it one of the best deals available. Very fast shipping as well!

why is this so hot? Especially since higher class cards are the same price?!

Not necessarily. The class differences relate to the sustained write speed, not the read speed.

Class 2 = at least 2MB/s
Class 4 = at least 4MB/s
Class 6 =at least 6MB/s

Read speed in all cases depends upon the card itself. A class 2 card can have a higher read speed than a class 6 card.

This card is not suitable for a camcorder, need class 4 as a minimum.

Why is this so hot when its clearly pointed out that you can better for the same price?

Who can tell? Might as well ask why a deal I found on CD-Rs sank without trace, possibly because they were the same price as DVD-Rs which are not the same thing and are often found at that price. I can only conclude that people don't engage brain before clicking.
