    I am wondering if u guys know the best SD card to buy with top reviews and the faster transfer speed, I bought a Sanyo HD1010, and my card I got with a still camera combo pack is kinda slow, makes me nervous.

    Any Suggestions on the best SD card brand and model?

    Thx

    Look at your user's manual. It should say whether you need a Class 4, Class 6, or whatever speed of card.

    I occasionally get write errors on cheaper cards. FWIW, my Panasonic class 6 card can keep up with my 720p camera no problem.
