Hi Ned!
I use Sandisk Extreme III 30mb/sec.
I have never had any problems with this card. I use 2 4Gb and one 2Gb, but I will soon buy an 8 Gb too. It would be nice with a 16 Gb card, but I prefer ´to use several 4 or 8 Gb instead. The reason for that is that if the card breaks down, or something happens with it, I would not want to lose 16Gb or something of photos.
Best regards/Daniel

OOOOOOOOOoooooooooohhhh... Never thought of the card breaking down. Good to know!!! Wow, thanks. I just wonder how much video I can put on a card... My wife's parents are from the "old country" which now belongs to Russia, I was thinking of making 10 to 15 minute clips of them telling stories about Karelia, the war, family, etc.... I thought I would make about 5 different segments, each about 10 or 15 minutes long. Thanks for the advice, my friend. Good to know. All the best to you and yours. Ned

No worries mate;-)
About video, you could always have a 16 Gb card for video, and a couple of 8 Gb cards for photo. I have a 16 Gb card for my camcorder. It´s enough for about 1 hour of video in full HD. 1080.

I have used delkin and panasonic class 6 cards. And non have fail me yet. My transcend class 10 should be here tomorrow. And from may review, I am sure I will get just as good reliability as my panasonic and delkin cards. And for me the price of 1 sandisk 16gb extreme class 10, will get me 3-4 transcend 16gb class 10 cards. So it think if you go with well know and respected brands card reliability should be fine.

I work with allot of memory card, and they all have a very low percentage of failure. But even the big brands have fail at work. We just get the name brands.

I have always been pleased with the performance of SanDisk cards. I have used them for many years, since long before I got a DSLR. I have never had one fail, but as others have said it does happen occasionally. I also agree with the advice that if you don't shoot video an Ultra II card is probably fine; if you plan to do a lot of video, it's worth getting an Extreme III card.

actually I tested a ultra II class 4 with hd 1080, it had no issue in a dark room for 12 min. The big difference is with long burst rates, especially in RAW. That is when the class 6 and class 10 pushes by the ultra II class 4
