I've just ordered a Panasonic FZ5 and need an SD card for it. A SanDisk Ultra II 512 MB sells for $42.44. A SanDisk Ultra II Plus goes for $58.87. A Patriot Extreme Performance (60x speed) is a mere $31.25. There are lots of others, some with names I recognize, some not. What are the important factors? Or canyou just recommend one, please? Thanks!

Yes differences of prices have reason.

- the speed : for exemple the Viking SD 1Gb you find in some shops in europe for 49E is able to.... slow your cam !!

- some are good for fast bridge or better like Kingston Elite pro and Ultimate or Sandisk Extrem III.

In europe the best speed/price seems PNY 66X.

But it s true. Lot cards on the market and we have toconsider the garanty too (2 years seems a minimum to request).

I would like to know if some use :

Maxell 150X

King Elephant 133X

thanks
