2.0 out of 5 stars Too slow for HD Panasonic TZ10 camera, 7 Sept. 2010
By 
This review is from: SanDisk SDSDB-016G-B35 16 GB Class 4 SDHC Memory Card (Label May Change) (Personal Computers)
It is a pity that recommendations made by Amazon when buying one product don't often suit it. I bought a Panasonic TZ10 and had recommended this Sandisk card. The speed rating on this card is only 2 and this is far too slow for the camera to work properly in HD video mode. It cuts out after about 15 secs. Having tried to format it and being a camera shop and not getting an explanation, I was eventually told that to make videos you need a card of speed 4 or faster. I now have a speed 4 and a speed 10 card and they both work well.

The star rating is for the product - which is a very good product - not for Amazons faulty advertising.
Do your research properly next time is my advice, dont rely on Amazon. I too bought the Panasonic and knew beforehand I need a x10 card for the video.

Yes that is right. the card takes good photos. Although I did the research on the camera reading up to 5 or 6 different reports, no where did any of them say what speed of camera card was to be used for video. I bought the card with the camera in bulk lot, it being recommended as the one to buy so had no opportunity to read the instructions first. The instructions say you need a card 4x or faster. It is always better in hindsight

I don't usually bother to make a comment on products, but I thought I should in this case. I have had a Panasonic TZ10 now for over two years using a Sandisk SDHC card and can honestly say I am more than happy with it, in fact I've been very impressed with the way it works in the video HD mode. I can only assume he has a fault with his camera or he has a duff SDHC card.
