    hi sdhc stands for high capacity, and these only work with high capacity compatible products, check if the sdhc logo is on the box of the camera, if not stick with the biggest standard sd card you can get.

    ... any card 2GB and under should be fine.

    Best if you get the model number and dig out the manual online.

    so i should just get a sd 2gb then yeah?

    It takes up to a 4GB SDHC card, so you would be fine with one of those.

    It will possibly take a larger one, but 4GB was probably the biggest that they tested it on.

    You can buy any SD card up to 2GB and any SDHC card up to 4GB and it's guaranteed to work according to the manufacturer.

    I'd buy a 4GB SDHC card since they're dirty cheap these days.

    Amazon for a safe bet, alot of ebay sellers have fakie ones.. I stick with Scandisk ones normally..
    p.s. assuming the camera is a norm compact digi camera then 2gb is fine for a good 600+ pics on 8mp. (IIRC its 628 pics or ~2:30hrs on my Casio V8 @ 8mp)

    would highly recomend "sandisk ultra III" for reliability
    can now be bought cheaply from places like 7dayshop.com etc
    would stay well clear of ebay for memory cards
    :thumbsup:

    The 1st thing To do is have a search.

    I put "+4GB +SDHC" in the search, and then narrowed it down to "Deals", and it ended up with this:

    hotukdeals.com/sea…e=1

    Have a look at the hot ones, and see if anyone pointed out a better deal.
    Remember, you need a SD card, not a mini SD or Micro SD.

    I normally use ]mymemory.co.uk. They have 4gb sdhc cards starting from £7.99. You can go through quidco for 4% cashback too.
