Default SD or SDHC for Panasonic FZ35

I am looking to purchase the Panasonic FZ35 and was wondering if I should purchase a SD or SDHC card...95% of the time I will be taking still photos. Also what size card should I purchase...I do not know how many pictures a SD or SDHC card can hold...is there a website that breaks this down?

Any assistance would be appreciated.
Thanks!

... except that my computer doesn't say "SDHC" anywhere, yet it works correctly with SD and SDHC, and I believe will also work with SDXC.

Transcend cards seem to offer the best deal currently.

The difference between an SD Card and an SDHC card is the storage capacity. SD Cards are smaller than 4GB, while SDHC cards are 4GB and larger.

That's the difference at one level, but the technology used is different and there are many older devices designed for SD that won't take SDHC. A Samsung compact I bought a couple of years ago not only won't take SDHC, but it'll only take SD up to 2gb.
