Stu, it would help in knowing what you want a SD card for?? Phone, PDA, Camera??? give us a clue.

You can get a SanDisk 2GB card for about £15 which will do most jobs and be acceptable in most mickey mouse cameras. If you want it for a more precise camera with a faster write speed, or you want to click the button faster AND your camera can handle fast write speed you could go for the SanDisk Ultra II 1GB for about £18 or try the SanDisk Extreme III 1GB for about £25.

You have to decide what you want the card to do and what your machine is capable of handling, then decide how much you want to spend on it, say £30 and then buy the next price up, so if that is a £38 card go for it, never buy the cheaper option as you will always regret it later and curse that card every time you take it out.

You also want to reformat every time you empty it as tracks get left behind on old cards. Don't format it on your pc either, try and format it on the machine you are using it on.

Hope this helps you. I buy most of my cards at 7dayshop but Pixmania are starting to offer cards cheaper. If you buy them from offshore stores, anything under £18 is VAT free but postage is about £3 with a next/two day delivery.

What card do Kodak recommend you use??? Check the Kodak site or the instruction manual with your camera. Some cameras can't handle big or fast cards so don't waste your money on them. Also a big card might hold loads of pictures but if you drop it or lose it, you will have a lot of retaking to get those precious moments back.

You also need to know what mode you will take most of your photos in, the higher the jpeg format the less photos you will get on a card, therefore the poorer the picture quality the more photos you will get but when you try and print a large print the quality will be grainy.

What is the model number of your camera?

its the easyshare cx6445 its probably just for pictures but ye never know might need to make movie with the burds :thumbsup:

Kodak recommend a High Performance 1GB card for £36, in that case I would opt for the SanDisk SD Ultra II 2GB card also at £36. I think SanDisk give a lifetime warranty with all their cards as well. Also with the burst facility it helps to have a bigger card because it takes 3 frames of the same picture. Good luck with your new toy, a 4mp camera should give you a good quality photo.
