The class 10 cards is more of a benefit for dslr, that have higher burst rates. But with most point and shoots, the fast card does not benefit the camera as it will not be able to write as fast as the card can be written on. A good class 6 for will cover you needs for video, and a class 4 will be all most point and shoots need for photos. So if you are shooting both video and photos, get a class 6 and you should be fine.

I got a transcend class 10 16gb today, and tested it against my delkin class 6 16gb. At hightest Jpeg, I was able to shoot 24 photos before running into shutter lag with the class 10, while I could only get 18 with the class 6 card.

I hope you know that if you were getting it for a dslr, you will gain some performance. But if you are using it for a point and shoot, you will most likely not see any difference, as they do not have a fast enough burst rate, or sdhc writer to see any gains.
