    M8 SD Card

    Does anyone have any recommendations for SD Cards for the M8? I'm thinking of HC cards and one larger card 16 GB and one smaller 4 or 8 GB.

    I would appreciate some feedback.

    Thank you

    I think there may be some problems with the larger cards. I would stick with Sandisk Extreme III and 4gb or smaller.

    I followed a thread on the Leica forum and users indicated they had fine results with both.

    I am using a 16gb sdhd card with no problems. Only thing is that you need an SDHD special reader for these cards. Plain old SD readers won't do it.

    Re: M8 SD Card

    How many raw files can you store on a 8 GB card?

    749 raw on my SanDisk 8gig Extreme III's. If you have JPEG set it comes up 999.

    Never a problem with my 8gigs.

    Woody -

    Are you saying you need a special reader to realize the benefits (ie - 30 MB/sec), or that that the reader won't read the card at all? I have a fairly new Sandisk reader, so I think I'm okay. The 2 GB Extreme III's work okay in my reader (older version of the Ext III's, not the updated 30 MB/sec type).

    Thanks.

    I nrrded to get a reader that would read SDHC cards. The older SD readers can't see the SDHC cards. SanDisk is including one with a pair of 4Gb SDHC cards at COSTCO for about $24.00.
