Is Class 4 SDHC sufficient for shooting 1080p video on a Nikon P100?

I have a Nikon P100. I want to film my wife's labor and I currently have a 32GB Class 4 SD card. Will Class 4 work filming 1080p video? Please advise before the baby gets here!

Thanks guys

Since you have the camera and the card, why don't you just test it?

Nikon recommends class 6 cards, but since the data rate of 1080p recordings with that camera do not even come close to the class 4 write capabilities (6 MB/s), you will be fine with it.

But to really find out, test it out for yourself and see, if your are satisfied with the results and if your SD card is up to it to write 14 Mb/s (1.75 MB/s) constantly.

To edit your thread title to a descriptive one, to get a knowledgable audience and help making the thread easier to find for people looking for the same information, just click on the button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the button below your message.

Considering that you are becoming a father I would think you would be no stranger to the statement "alright lets try it and see what happens"
