SD Cards

SD cards range from 2-32 GB. The cards used are the Micro SD/TF/SDHC with storage space 4GB/8GB/16GB/32GB. Tip: TF = TransFlash, SDHC = Secure Digital High Capacity. Your local computer store may sell these cards but you will probably find them cheaper online. The higher the class number (2, 4, 6...) the faster the read/write speed. Transcend, Kinston, and SanDisk are popular brands. Class numbers will be circled, see pic below.

Class is the rate in which data flows to and from the card.
Class 2 = 2MB/second
Class 8 = 8MB/second
Class 10 = 10MB/second
This is the minimum data transfer for each card.

When inserting the SD card the brass pins on card will face towards top of camera.
To remove or insert SD card push card IN until you hear a "click" sound.

Note: Class 10 recommended for the Mate 808.
