... and lots of people here swear by Transcend. (... as opposed to "swear at", like some other brands.)

I just recently got a transcend class 10 16gb, and it is working fine with my canon. Just as good as my panasonic, and delkin class 6 cards and sandisk class 4

Transcend, Delkin, Sandisk, Laxar, Panasonic, and Kingston are all good cards. Stay away from ADATA.

I'd recommend also Patriot and OCZ. Really, at these prices it doesn't matter much if the card turns out to be too slow. Just move it to a point and shoot or give it away.

If you take a sequence of photos in continuous shooting mode, and, after the first 5 or 10, the camera starts taking a lot longer to take additional shots, the card is too slow.

If you record video clips, and the camera breaks up a long video into multiple smaller clip with gaps between them, the card is too slow.
