This is a really good deal for this memory card. It gives a R.R.P. of £49.99 and I have certainly seen it at that sort of price in Currys etc. if not more.

I bought my Husband a new camera for Christmas and this is probably bigger than he needs but it seemed silly to buy one with less memory when this was cheaper!

They are currently 'in stock' but even when it says they aren't you will still get one eventually if you 'buy it'.

I don't know about Quidco but you can certainly get Nectar points for play.com

BTW, can anyone tell me how to add a pic to the deal, please? Thanks

Hi, those card are only Class 2 so you will not be able to use them for recording HD quality video with your camera. You need Class 6 to do that.

Was that you who added the picture? If so, thanks, but how did you do it, please?

Amazon are selling for the exact same price:

Also, I put one of these into my Toshiba Camileo H20 and managed to Record 1080p and 720p (HD Footage) perfectly fine.

I have one of the 16Gb PNY class 4 cards and it's fine for the 720p (30fps) HD on my camera. Unfortunately they aren't at their £16 price any more :-(

For 1080P at 30fps I believe you'd need a minimum write speed of 10MB/s (or a class 10 card). In practice a some class 6 cards will be fast enough, (for instance my class 4 gave between 8-12mb/s sustained and burst write speeds depending on the different block sizes I used). Most "HD" video cameras are not 1080p or have a slower fps.

Not very good price for a class 2 card.

Be careful when buying cards to record video, not all cards even when rated class 4, 6 or whatever; are the same speed in the class. There is a good guide to actual write speeds at the link below. Different cameras need different speed cards depending bit rate used and resolution. Info should be in the camera manual, mine says use Class 4 or above

Good advice :thumbsup:

The class tests are based on tests that the classification people reckon show video performance; that said a Class 4 will be somewhere between 4-6mb/s while a class 6 is over 6MB/s - so the difference between a Class 4 and Class 6 card could be a lot or a very little...

Wouldn't it be great if there was a table like that for every device? It's interesting how on the D90 table you link to the patriot card only managed 4.6mb/s raw - even though it's a class 6; and the PNY 4Gb class 6 managed 6.5MB/s while the PNY 8Gb class 6 was 10.7MB/s - basically the only conclusions you can draw from that (unless you have a D90) is that not all cards are equal (even from the same manufacturer) and if you spend a lot you'll usually (but not always) get a faster card.

I do wonder how they test these cards sometimes to get those class ratings.

One of the best value cards is in my post linked below, rated at 10MB/s in the table linked above

How does it compare to this?

My Husband was chuffed, but then he is going to be taking photographs on his camera - you remember photographs don't you, they are what we had in the old days before videos? ;-)

Thanks Charliebrown, for the uploading info :thumbsup:

not a great deal.

Play had their own brand 16gb at this price last month and they were Class 6
this card will struggle with HD video being a class 2
