Default Best card for Canon 550d?

Im about to buy a Canon EOS 550d And have heard that some SDHC cards don't accept the full HD video. I have a 8GB SandDisk Ultra II SDHC card, will this be suitable for HD Video? Or will another card be more suitable? If so I please may you suggest one (preferably on Jessops website, where im buying the camera from.) Do you have any experience with the camera and full HD video?

Thanks Chris

You should get at least a Class 6 Card if you'll be recording video or shooting continuoulsly. And a Class 10 card wouldn't hurt. I stick with SanDisk or Lexar for my important stuff, but others have been satisfied with other brands.

I'm using for all my cameras only Transcend 8/16GB class6 - they are the cheapest and all okay.

I hate expensive Sandisks - pulling out money ...

I have a T2i and am using a 8g Sandisk 30 m/s card and it works as good as I have found. I also have a 8g class 6 Delkin and it is fine except for burst when the camera slows sooner (RAW+JPEG).
