Not by that much 450 photo on a class 6 card vs a class 10 card is about a minute.

who makes it, I have use class 4 with HD video and depending on the size of the buffer, it may work fine. I have a sandisk class 4, which almost meets class 6 specs. The HS10 might work just fine with a class 4.

I have a bunch of cards for my 500D, the sandisk class 4 is very fast, I have the transcend 16gb class 10. It helps with my burst mode on my dslr. It always a good idea to have a backup card. You never know, also hd video will eat 3gb for a 10 min clip. So have more space is a good thing.

Thanks for your quick responses

About the tripod: I will check out my local camera store to see what tripods they have, and if I find one thats fits for me, I will buy it on a internetstore (it's cheaper).

About the SHDC card: As I've heard the transcend 4gb class 6 fits fine, and I don't have plans to go on travel so 4gb should be enough. I can always buy another card

About the batteries: I already have some Eneloops, and they are great batteries. There might be 2700mAh batteries, but the Eneloops wil live longer and they have a nice constant voltage.

My neighbor has a TCON-17 lens, and he said it will work great with an HS10, but I think I should first improve my camera skillz, because, as I said before, it is an big step up from an V803 and my knowledge about photography is very limited.

Thanks again for your reactions, i like this forom more and more

You may find 270omha NiMH batteries to last longer when fully charged compared to the eneloopes.

... you can buy 12 eneloop batteries for the same price as 8 2700mAh batteries.

But if battery life is important to you and if you shoot live action where changing batteries is not something you want to have to do at peak of action then........ something to think about. When I bought my 2700mAh batteries last May they were very comparable in price. Try newegg.com and thomasdistributing for prices.
