    Hi ppl,
    I'm hoping to buy a Panasonic SD90 camcorder (records at 28Mbps), and am now looking at the SD cards I should get. I've narrowed it down to two: a Sandisk and a Transcend
    Sandisk
    Transcend

    The Sandisk has an advertised speed class of 2 (in product features) or 4 (in the picture) (which one should I believe?); while the Transcend comes in Class 10. I understand Class 10 would be faster, but why does it turn out to be cheaper? Am I missing something else?

    Thanks!

    I like Transcend. In my experience it is good value.

    I don't trust pictures. If there's a mismatch, I assume the worst case, if I ever decide to go for a vendor which can't keep their descriptions in order.

    SD, SDHC, and SDXC are different things. You're talking about classes of speed, so they are not SD.
