    What memory card to buy

    I have just bought a samsung 's170' camera which needs an sd card.
    But I have no idea what I should be looking for, Ive seen a few on amazon and ebay but they seem really cheap do they work just as good?
    I'm so not up to date with things like this so please advise!!

    Get yourself over to]http//ww…com there are very reliable, quality and low priced SD cards there just look for something Class 6 and above with a high writing speed (you will see it in the description like 166x write speed etc.) The higher the number the faster the picture will be processed on to the SD card.

    Yeah, any SD card at all

    the higher the Class number and the Speed then the faster the camera can process the image or video on to the card. What you want to make sure of those is to check to see if your device can accept high capacity SD cards. If not then you will be limited to using a standard 2GB SD Card. If the device can accept high capacity SD cards then you can pick up a 16GB SDHC card for around £15.....which should be more than enough! lol...

    If that is your camera s1070 then )I could not find any mention of the s170 so I assumed you missed the zero out)

    Which means you might get a 16gb one to work but best stick to 8 gig and see if you can find out also what brand 8gig works from some other uses who own the same camera
