I believe MXM has done testing but my guess would be Sandisk Class 10 but "best" can change very quickly in any direction. Would you believe I'm using Sandisk 32GB Class 2 cards purchased in January 2009 and they work fine. I think there was a small run that far exceeded their class rating and that shortly thereafter even the Class 4 cards had issues.

Thanks for the info. What about Transcend? I have two 16 gb cards and they have never lost a clip. I have had a error message from time to time though. Thanks.

That would not be acceptable to me for professional work. I think MXM makes some comments about Transcend and outsourced production. To me that means inconsistent Quality Control and variable results with cards with the same branding and classification.

I use transcend, but have had issues in the past with them. I would not buy them again. I use San Disc on my DSLR. They are rock solid. I haven't tried them on my EX-1.

Ok. Sounds like SanDisk is the way to go. B&H has the 32 GB class 10 for $97 with free shipping. Beach Camera has a good price too, but I know nothing about them.

I think all the manufacturers have some issues. Case in point, I bought four Hoodman 16GB cards and soon thereafter saw an ad for 16GB / Class10 Adata cards for about half the price. I bought four of those as well. After about a year of using all eight cards (along with a lot more), the only card to fail was one of the Hoodmans (it works but, but too many card read errors to be reliable).

I think it has more to do with data handling practices and environment than manufacturing. If the card can handle the initial tests, it should be reliable, but I'm using them now as backups as I have a Ki Pro as my main recorder.

SONY XDCAM EX3 - Letus Elite - FC7.0.2 - CS4 Prod Prem.

Are Sandisk 32 GB SDHC Class 6 cards a good choice? Thanks.

[Bob Mark] "Are Sandisk 32 GB SDHC Class 6 cards a good choice? Thanks."

They should work but if there's even a chance that you'd do overcranking I'd consider Class 10.

Thanks. What about Lexar Pro brand?

They got a great review by Tom's Hardware. "this is the fastest SDHC card in this roundup, reaching 18.6 MB/s write throughput and 19.7 MB/s read transfer rate." A 32gb Class 10 is $70.

Has anybody tried the Sandisk Extreme PRO SDHC? Supposedly faster than Class 10.
