Congrats on the new A350.

The Sony A350 uses CompactFlash cards, not SDHC cards (although you can buy SDHC to CompactFlash adapters if you really have a need to use SDHC).

I'd get a fast CompactFlash card instead (133x or faster). You can buy a 16GB CompactFlash card for a good price right now. For example, a 133x Transcend 16GB CompactFlash card with a lifetime warranty is around $51 at some vendors. That's less than half of what I paid for my Transcend 133x 16GB Card less than two years ago. Here are some examples of 16GB CompactFlash cards at newegg.com. Smaller 8GB cards are less.
