I went to buy some 16GB Sandisk Extreme SDHC cards for my D7000. I meant to purchase the standard Extreme cards, but bought the HD Video cards by mistake. Any problem with that for still pictures? Does anyone know the difference between the cards that are HD Video and those that are not HD Video? (I take only stills, no video).
I've looked on the SanDisk website and can't really find much.

I have a pile of Sandisk including Extreme Pro, and at first I thought you were scammed because there are now so many counterfeits. I would still check to see if the capacity is close in your computer to what it says on the card. A 32GB should yield about 29.7 GB
I just left the SanDisk site and do indeed see VIDEO cards. The SanDisk Video HD™ SDHC™ Card - 4GB and 16GB are only class 4 but a SanDisk class 4 can read/write up to 15MBs which is fast enough for most camera stills and even Video. I think there is a link in this thread to the class 10 Video cards
My SanDisk 8GB Extreme HD Video card is labelled 30MB/s and class 10. I don't believe it's a class 6 because it writes so much faster than my other class 6 cards and buffer goes from full to empty in 10 seconds (yay). Dawn.
Thanks, Rob. I did notice that my HD Video cards were Class 10, when the cards I intended to order were Class 6. I guess the bottom line to all this is that there is no problem with me using these cards for my still photography, and it might even be an advantage if I am shooting action photography.
