@lordwoot: That's linking to a class 2, not class 6.

@jcharlson34: What will you be using this for that you need class 4? Phones and music playback should work fine with class 2.

But here's the cheapest I found so far:

I've never heard of that brand, so you should research before considering it, but a 16GB Class 4 for $36.20 + $6.99 is pretty damned good.

A few bucks cheaper than the others ~ Transcend 16 GB Class 6 SDHC Flash Memory Card for $39.75 + Free Shipping: http://deals.woot.com/deals/details/922c4b64-8b4b-4902-a1d0-37493ea96e96/

The card will be used in a ContourHD 1080p Helmet Cam. The math works out to say that I should be fine with a class 2, other reviews say otherwise, like that the camera could not record onto a class 2 and such. So for that reason I' like to stick on the safe side of things and go with a Class 4 or higher.

Here's the link to the cam if you are interested:

@anotherhiggins: Good call, I posted that at 5am (up all night). I thought it was right when I posted, sorry OP. :/

@jcharlson34: That makes perfect sense. I use Class 6 cards in my HD camcorder because I read the same thing about class 2s (and I found the class 6s on sale). I didn't think about a helmet cam using micro-SD.

Unfortunately 16GB micro SDHCs with high write-speed just ain't cheap. Would you consider 2x 8GB cards? It might be a fair amount cheaper - and if you take a really nasty spill.... Well, you won't be putting all your eggs in one basket if you keep two cards and swap them out.

Here are the 8GB SDHCs at Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010170068%201053131144%201053313634&name=8GB

@catbertthegreat: That's not a micro, it's standard SD size.

@lordwoot: Heh. I understand.

@anotherhiggins: Damn, didn't notice that requirement, oops.

Well, I'm more looking for a single 16gb card. Reason being that the camera itself can hold a maximum of a 16gb card and the reviews say that on a 16gb card they could record for about 3 hours at full 1080p. That would give me about 1 1/2 hours on a 8gb. I personally would rather pay a little more to not have to change the card out while I'm on the mountain. So, I think a single 16gb card is what I'm in the market for.
