    What make of SD Cards do you use in your camera?

    I have a batch of SanDisk 2GB cards that I use in my Nikon DSLR. They've had quite a bit of use and I'm looking to replace them with faster, higher capacity cards. What 8GB cards do you use? Are there any makes to avoid?

    I have Kensington in my Sony DSLR, CF rather than SD though.

    Always end up with SanDisk, Kingston or Fujifilm. Of them, the Fujifilm have been the most unreliable. Never had a single problem with SanDisk.

    Likewise use SanDisk here, they are the only ones that I have not had random issues with. I use them (MicroSD) in my phone and camera. I had all sorts of issues with DOA Kingston 8GB SD cards and dodgey Transcend ones, have not tried Fujifilm so I guess I have had no issues with them either .

    At the moment (thanks to a friend borrowing and losing mine - it's got a "mymemory.com" 8Gb card.. it's class 6 but only just scrapes through. If you're looking at doing a lot of continous shooting - have a look for the higher spec SanDisk Extremes (20 and 30mb/s) which makes it roughly the same speed as a class 10 card. I'm looking at grabbing a pair of 8Gb for gigs...
