Re: memory card

I've had good luck with the SanDisk, Sony, Transcend and Lexar brands of SD cards. That's not to say that other brands wouldn't work, but the ones I've recommended are known for their reliability.

Re: memory card

your very welcome...I usually buy SanDisk cards like that other member said and I've not had any problems with them. SanDisk also has good support on their website you can go there for information on the different types of read and write speeds. I dont worry so much about the speeds for use in a camera. I have a few different sizes from 8 gb, 16 gb 32 gb and 64 gb. I would suggest not going smaller than 16 gb if your only going to get one.

I use my 64gb card mostly but keep in mind it holds a lot of pictures which is good but it's easy to lose track of all the pictures on the larger cards. But there are ways around that like creating folders on the card, sorting by date etc.

The 8gb cards are good becuase they fill up faster and force me to go through the pictures more frequently and delete the not so good shots and save the rest on my computer in folders or send some out to be printed.If you get the smaller 8gb get more and carry more than one.

Re: memory card

It sounds like your in a really good setting to take wildlife pictures and now you have an excellent camera to do that with.

There are lots of helpful folks on here to help you with any questions you may have...none are to silly so dont hesitate.

Its a powerful camera do not let it overwhelm you. There are some good video lessons on you tube for that camera too that really help to cut through the technical stuff.

Your welcome !
