"best memory card"



What's the best (fastest) memory card for my D5000?

Also, has anyone else noticed that some memory cards seem to stick when you're trying to get them out?

I personally picked up one of these (in addition to an extra card I always keep in my bag in case I forget my first one in my card reader at home).

Generally, the number inside the circle is your speed gauge. (6 in this case.) Though I haven't done any burst shoots with my D5000, I have used this for video a few times and had nothing but stellar results. Reviewing the pictures on the LCD is quick as well.

I believe that "technically" this card is faster.

But the other works just as well for what I need. Plus, I got a card reader with it.

Edit: Oh! My card seems to be a little difficult to pull out... I figured it was just Nikon's way of ensuring the card doesn't come out accidentally. It doesn't seem to be stuck on anything, just in there tightly.

Hi Steve,

Welcome to Nikonians!
The fastest SDHC cards available are the Sandisk Extreme III's.
They are extremely reliable as well.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
