    I am not a card expert, but I would say buy the fastest card you can afford with the largest capacity that you can afford.

    I have found Newegg to be a reliable company (I own no stock with them). They have a good website with lots of info and customer feedback. Have a problem - they have good customer service.

    Check out their available cards and be sure to read their "Learning Center" links near the bottom on the left side. BTW I use a Transcend card in my Cannon T1i.

    You are welcome.

    I did see a couple of sdxc cards listed on Amazon and Newegg (seem rather expensive). Guess they must be newer/faster that what I am using. But yours seem like good choices to me.

    Be sure to check around for pricing. When I got mine (a while back) it cost HALF the price at Newegg versus what Best Buy wanted, for example. So prices can vary a great deal.

    Also, I found that the card reader (on my PC) did not handle sdhc cards. I could buy another reader - not that expensive or just transfer using the USB cable from the camera to the PC. I chose the USB cable route so I did not need to take the card in and out a lot.

    ENJOY!!

    Be sure to read the customer reviews, wherever you choose to buy, and pick the one you feel comfortable with.
