Found 7th Sep 2010
My uncle has just bought a 12mp fuji camera from tesco £50.

Will a class 2 sd card be suitable. I know class 4 or 6 would be better but I was trying to keep the cost don for him.

Would there be a noticeable difference.

Thanks

A class 2 should be fine.
I would recommend that he turn down the resolution of his photos though.
You would rarely ever need to use the full 12mp quality of the camera. 5mp or even 3mp is fine for 6x4 prints and viewing on the computer.
Shooting at lower res would make the images quicker to read and write to the card as well.

Cheers Monkey. Yes 12mp does sound OTT.
