The high speed card performed the same for me in too many cameras. So I found a Kingston 2GB SD card for 47 bucks plus shipping and that's what I'm using. I also picked up a 4GB SD card for 98 bucks plus shipping but many devices don't support such a size yet. Stick with the 2GB for today.

note the poster said high speed SD card

In reply to: What I found was..

yes, $47 is the low end for a 2G Kingston (without factoring in any shipping cost...if there are any). I picked up a 1G Kingston for $29 locally (MicroCenter in Cambridge, MA).

Note though that the poster asked about high speed SD...anaig, the best way to price this is via a search engine (and review recs of sellers).

A question for the poster....why do you feel you need a high speed card?

We have such high speed cards and found no improvement over non-high-speed cards. It appears that very few devices take advantage of such cards or marketing has run amok without revealing what you are paying for.

High speed vs normal speed
by Jaedre / June 19, 2006 5:52 AM PDT

I heard that high speed cards are recommended on camemras with higher resolution - 5 megapixels and higher since writing large files to the cards can slow down the cameras' responsiveness. I haven't tried to verify this. Does any one have experience on this issue?
