    SDHC for M8?

    I was wondering if there were any 4GB cards that will work with the M8?

    I've got a 2GB SanDisk eXtreme III in my camera now and was wondering if the 4GB version of that card would work.

    Or, are we limited to 2GB cards?

    Maggie,
    Unless something changed very recently, no SDHC cards work in M8. For 4GB, I have been using some Ridata Pro 4GB 150x cards without a problem since day one. Others are equally happy with the 4GB cards from Transcend, I believe (ask Guy, he is using them). Do not have any ideas about the SanDisk cards, but if SDHC, forget it for now.

    ::crosses fingers for eXtreme III compatibility::

    I've got a 4GB eXtreme III in my D-Lux 3 and would love to use it in the M8. But I don't want to just go and try it and wind up frying it (or the camera) or something, you know?

    Maggie,

    You won't fry the camera. The green LED memory card light will just blink forever unitl you turn the camera off. No damage to card or camera. It just won't work, that's all.

    We carry Transcend, but they only offer 4GB in SDHC now. They used to make a 4GB non-SDHC, but not anymore.

    Maggie,
    You might want to check MyDigitalDiscount, as they seem to have several 4GB SD cards. Not sure if all will work in M8, but these are NOT SDHC.

    I purchased 8 Transcend 4GB TS4GSD150 150x cards when I got my M8 just a year ago. Not only are they now more difficult to find but the price in the UK has doubled in the meantime. Leica really needs to address SDHC compatibility. At least the 2GB Sandisk Ultra II cards I also use are still available and continue to drop in price.

    Like Bob I use the Transcend 4GB TS4GSD150 150x cards. I have 6 of them and have been using them in my M8 since Nov. 07 with no problems. I just checked newegg (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820163159) and the cards are $44.95 which doesn't seem too bad for a fast 4 gig card.
