Does anyone with a full hd camcorder know if these are ok at class 4.Iv'e only bought class 6 so far for mine but these are a good price if they work ok.

Hot or not? mmmmmmmmmmmm

SanDisk version is £17.99 at amazon

Do you have a link please?

never had a PNY card and trust Sandisk so would probably spend the extra couple of quid.

Still voting hot though, a pound a gig is a bargain if your not brand loyal.

Is this the one you're referring to?

amazon.co.uk/San…8-2

If so, then its worth bearing in mind that the one you refer to on Amazon is a Class 2 card, whilst the one in this deal is a Class 4.

gone for one, cheers

This is just as good as SanDisk - been running in my cam for a while now.

Amazing deal for a class 4 16GB card. The equivelent Sandisk card on Amazon costs £42.56, linked below. The Sandisk card linked in one of the above posts is a class 2, so is slower (not so good for HD video or burst photography on a DSLR).

amazon.co.uk/San…1-4

Quite slow write time isn't it?

Was thinking of something new for the SLR, but was hoping for closer to 15-20MB/s write times.

Still a good deal though.

I have this and running in a Sanyo xacti @ 720p and working perfectly.

not that hot of a deal, been at that price for ages (I know because I've been waiting for the price to come down but it hasn't). I got mine last week, it's great for the money, designed for video recording so not that suitable for higher end equipment e.g. burst modes, high res photos etc. I use it on my small HD camcorder gadgets at 720p/60fps and 1080/30fps and no problems at all.

I use this on my Camileo S10 full HD no problems so far.

How slow would HD video be if I was using it on my panasonic tv?

The speed class denotes the minimum guaranteed transfer speed of a given card - i.e:

Class 2: 2MB/s
Class 4: 4MB/s
Class 6: 6MB/s

...and so on.

sdcard.org/dev…ss/

It really depends on your intended purpose. For folks wanting to use the cards with SLR's and rapid exposures, higher transfer rates are preferable since the camera doesn't need to spend as much time writing to the card or buffering data. For playback purposes I believe the transfer rate is less of an issue - writing is typically more intensive than reading - if the HD device can write the HD footage to the card correctly with the allotted bandwidth, then reading shouldn't be a problem. You may also have to check the specification for your Viera TV to see which SD(HC) cards are supported - as some of the higher capacities may not work...

Well, according to page 69 of the user manual (PDF), it states:

"Compliant card type (maximum capacity): SDHC Card (32 GB), SD Card (2 GB), miniSD Card (2 GB) (requiring miniSD adapter)"

dlc.panasonic-europe-service.com/EUD…df&

If you're just planning on viewing photo slideshows and the like, then the Class 2 card should be more than enough. As for whether Class 2 is good enough for 720p or 1080i/p video - you'll have to rely on the feedback of others here - since I have not used these types of cards to record and play HD video media on my television.

thanks for that yep that's exactly what I intend to use it for that HD video content
anyone know then?
