Step 1: Check compatibility Check the compatibility of older digital cameras or camcorders to the newer SDHC that have become the standard over the old SD cards. Step 2: Determine size Determine how much storage space you need. If you are buying an SD card for a still camera, a 4 GB card is sufficient. For video, 8 or 16 GB is needed. Step 3: Pick a speed Assess your need for speed. Stated speed is how fast still images are written to a card, whereas Class ratings are how fast video is written. Check the specifications of your product. Tip Digital SLRs often need cards with faster speeds than other digital cameras. Step 4: Choose the right features Choose the extras that are right for you. For example, SD+ cards have a built in USB connect so that when flipped down they can double as a thumb drive. Did You Know? Developed by SanDisk, Toshiba, and Panasonic as a joint effort, the SD card was first released in 1999.
