Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V 10.2 MP CMOS 10x Wide-Angle Zoom Digital Camera with Optical Steady Shot Image Stabilization and 3.0 Inch LCD
Used & New from: $69.00
What memory card to buy for HX5V It looks like I am going to decide on the HX5V. Does anyone have recommendations regarding memory card? I know there are different levels of cards and would like to get it right.

Thanks!

I read a recommendation for class 6 card if you are using the AVCHD video.

I got a Patriot SD card at Fry's 16 GB on sale for $30. So far so good.

After owning this machine for about 3 months, I have my question answered. I have tried class 4, 6 and 10 SDHC cards, and they all perform nicely without any problem, all the video (1080i) playback were smooth no matter they were recorded by class 4, 6 or 10.

Also, still very happy about my purchase, just came back from a family vacation over the summer, and this one device does it all, my camcorder is now collecting dust.

Does the HX5V come with a battery or does that need to be purchased separately?

Ref the Sony HX5V - I see you need to buy a memory card separately. Am a total beginner - how does one transfer the images to a CPU - is there a way of doing it using a USB connection ?

Thanks

You transfer images by removing memory card from your camera and inserting it into your computer's memory card reader. If your computer doesn't have one - you can buy a cheap USB memory card reader for a few $$$. Alternatively, if you have a WiFi network at home, you can buy one of the Eye-Fi memory cards (Amazon sells them too), then you can transfer images from camera to your computer wirelessly.

I use San Disk Class class (10) SDCH I 16gb to record and take pictures, works well, no rebuff while recording in MP4 fomat. I also use San Disk Class (4) 8 GB SDHC when the 16 GB one is filled. The class 4 works well also, but I only record in MP4, never tried AVCHD format. If you have any more quest plz ask.
