This one goes for $41 and it would give you 90min of 21Mbps footage.


It is a class 6, and I have used several RIDATA cards before without any problems (on other devices).
Any better deals out there? I am only interested in finding 16GB or maybe 32GB cards if they were affordable.

RIDATA rocks the house... solid performer. I do however have a 2GB that I've owned for well over a year now (can't remember) and it is starting to fall apart from how much I've used it.

I expect this one to work very well, but I wonder if there are any bigger cards out there. I haven't seen a 32GB yet. Anyone?

I saw this review but can't find it for sale: http://www.dpreview.com/news/0801/08010806panasonic32gbsdhc.asp

Sure there are tons more out there to be googled. I personally have had great success with Trancends 8 and 16gb SDHC Class 6 cards.

Honestly, Ridata is the only brand of memory I've ever had fail... and that's among some pretty shi*ty names.

They're supposedly on-par with Transcend and the other mid-tier memory brands, but I had two of their compact flash cards take a dump on me within 2 months of each other, so they all went good bye.

I'm using Transcend 16GB and 8GB SDHCs lately and I'm pretty happy.

Really? How did they fail? What happened exactly?

I have had and used that exact card purchased from Newegg for several weeks now with no problem. I also used it for a wedding shoot last weekend with no problems.

I also have the Ridata 2 & 4 GB card and they have worked well too.

I also have the Transcend 8 GB card from Newegg and it works great too.

Ridata is actually my favorite flash memory. I use many of their slightly older silver & gold CF cards for my Canon DSLRs, never a problem.

I would suggest formatting the card in the HMC150 and testing it before any important shoot. So far, my HMC150 has not had a single problem with any card.
