 Great card, good price

| | See all LunaticGamer's reviews (5)

I got 2 of these for my SLR so I can stick with using RAW mode for holiday. At 15-18mb a shot, each card lets me take 900-1000 photos.
Based on actual file size from my TZ7, the card will take around 2600 JPG photos at 10Mpx (6mb each).

One bad point is that the PNY sticker was mis-aligned on both my cards. I ended up with the cards being a little awkward to get out of my SLR as they would not pop out when ejected. This was down to the sticker not sitting in the recess. Cured in my case by removing the labels.

 extremely good value for money

i got this to use with my pentax K7 and it works like it should. In raw mode it will take a continous 5 frames before slowing down. on jpeg it was continous to the point of infinity. this is amazing especially when each image is 10mb.

cant fault it in any way. get one or even 2!!

 Works perfectly in a DMC-FZ28 and TZ6

Just got mine today, tested it in my Panasonic DMC-FZ28 and the card works like a charm. HD Video recording is fine too. My friend tested it on his TZ6 before ordering and everything works perfectly. I think this is the cheapest 16GB Branded SDHC Genuine Class 4 card in the UK! Buy one while they are in stock! Superfast dispatch from Play and amazing price!

 Do you really need class 6?

Excellent price for a lot of storage. Do you really need Class 6? I use this in my Canon 450D with no lag when shooting multiple shots.
So I saved myself a few quid and got room for nearly 1000 RAW images at full resolution. Really pleased with the quality and price. :)

Going on a short trip to NYC so bought this. Fast speeds and enough storage for over 3000 images on my Nikon D40, also taking some smaller storage cards for safety. Great item!
