Default memory card for zs7

I need to buy memory card for my new zs7.
If I buy class 10 SDHC, can I take some advantage?
Or class 6 is enough?

Thanks!

nope, you really will not see the advantage of a class 10 on the zs7. All you need is a class 6 for the HD video. If the difference is just couple of dollars, get the class 10. If it it is a bit more, you will not get any gain for the extra money you are spending.

Class 6 is all you need. Save your dough.

D90 a class 10 will give you a longer burst period. So you will see the gain in RAW shoot and continuous shooting. If you were getting for the d90 get the class 10 if you shoot RAW or long burst rates.

Thanks!
There won't be any significant advantage to using a Class 10
over a Class 6 in this camera. There won't be any disadvantage
either, so you might as well get a Class 10. Transcend and
SILICON POWER class 10 cards are around the same price
as Class 6 cards and they are a bit faster.
