It's designed to use SDHC cards. ]

Oh. I found it! Jim, so just get one that says SDHC? Thats it?

If you want to be able to store more photos, yes. I don't know how much internal memory your camera has.

They're relatively inexpensive now. You can get a Transcend Class 10 8GB SDHC card for around $15 delivered.

Here's an 8GB Transcend Class 6 Card with a Card Reader for $15.99 delivered. That's what I'd probably grab for use in your camera. That way, you'd have a relatively fast memory card with lots of space for photos, as well as a card reader in case you ever needed one. It does appear to be a "flimsy" reader from comments I see about it in the customer feedback for this package, mentioning a plastic USB connector for plugging it in (but, hey, for a buck more than an 8GB card alone, it's probably worth it for use in a pinch when you don't want to connect the camera directly via USB).

I can't find out how many pictures my camera holds either. Or what size the darn pictures are!


I will get that card ^. Can I get it at Target, Walmart? I want it NOW, Jim.

See your camera's specifications, or look in it's manual. ;-)

Specs (and you'll see a section on how many photos internal memory can hold, as well as how many photos you can fit on popular card sizes). Movies take more space:

Manuals:

I'd make sure to get a Class 6 or Class 10 card for it (otherwise, it may be too slow for video).

Yes, Target, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Office supply stores like Staples, etc., usually carry SDHC Cards (the type of card your camera needs).

Transcend Class 6 or Class 10 SDHC cards are probably a good bet for it. But, you may not find that brand. Sandisk cards are also well liked (especially their Extreme Series cards). But, again, I'd get a Class 6 or Class 10 card for it, regardless of the brand you buy. The Class rating represents the minimum write speed with SDHC Cards. You should see a circle with a number inside of it on SDHC Cards. I'd suggest making sure it's 6 or 10 (cheaper SDHC cards may not have a rating, or be a slower Class 2 or Class 4 card).

Note that you'll probably pay a lot more for a given brand/speed/card size at a local store instead of buying one online though.
