    you need to get the card that fits your camera. If you have the d90, you can only use SD cards.

    Definitely stick with Sandisk and get the fastest card you can for the money.

    Negative ghostrider. This is bad information.

    all cards over 2gb are sdhc, by default.

    I'd be interested to see where you're seeing an 8gb NON-sdhc card.

    It may not say it, but if it is over 2GB, it is using the HC format.

    :o

    I read 'only use sd cards' as meant to mean 'you can't use sdhc cards'


    mah bad.

    It didn't register that the OP might be confused between sd and cf cards....

    Someone on here was saying write speeds are irrelevant when using the camera, cause it only writes at 6mbps anyway?
