From the Manufacturer
Approximately the size of a postage stamp, SDHC cards offer greater capacity than standard SD cards while maintaining the same form factor.
SDHC Class 6 cards offer more capacity and faster transfer rates.
Display thousands of high quality photos on SDHC enabled digital photo frames.
Ideal for expanding storage capabilities of netbooks and mini laptops with SDHC slots.
Store More Photos
With most point and shoot digital cameras quickly climbing the megapixel ladder, 6,8, and even 10 megapixel ratings are beginning to be commonplace. With Transcend SDHC cards, you can keep up with the larger files these high resolution cameras produce. With 4 GB, 8 GB, and 16 GB capacities, you can store more photos without having to delete old photos on the card before you have the chance to save them to a PC or print them out.
Store More of Everything
The larger capacities of SDHC cards make them more versatile than ever. Use them in all your mobile devices that support the SDHC standard. All that is required is an SDHC compatible slot or reader. SDHC is an extension of the original SD standard that enables capacities greater than 2 GB. It uses the same physical form factor as SD, but SDHC cards only work in SDHC compatible devices. Standard SD cards work in both SD and SDHC devices (backward compatible).
Enjoy Faster Transfer Speeds
Basic SD cards transfer data up to six times (6x) the data rate of the standard CD-ROM speed (900 kB/s). Transcend SDHC class 6 cards offer a minimum of 6 MB/s write speeds under the most demanding storage conditions. Some cameras require a high speed card to be able to record video smoothly or capture multiple still photographs in rapid succession. Check your device for maximum compatibility for your intended usage patterns.

Ensure Your Device is SDHC Compatible
SDHC devices can use both older SD cards and SDHC (high capacity) cards. However older cameras and other devices that were released before the SDHC standard may not support the new SDHC cards. Please check your device documentation to verify compatibility before purchase. If your device is fairly new or states support for 4 GB or greater SD cards, then you already have SDHC support.
Digital Camera Storage Capacity Table
Memory cards should be purchased according to how high the resolution or DPI (dots per inch) of your digital camera is (i.e. how many megapixels it has), and how many pictures you plan on taking at a time. Transcend has provided the following graph to assist you in buying an appropriate capacity card for your camera:

Best thing about vacations is that they give you the perfect reason to go out and buy new toys!!! I'm heading to Costa Rica for 8 days of adventure and after looking fondly at my Canon SD850IS, the first thing I thought was, "I'm going to need more space". The one mistake I made when I purchased my 2GB SD card was underestimating how much video I'd take with this little camera (which this camera is surprisingly good at).
With the activities we have planned for CR, I needed to be certain that I'd have enough memory to capture all those crazy adventures (Volcano hikes, zip lines, canopy tours, white water rafting, scuba diving etc...)
* So how much does it store?
At max resolution here are the capacities:
Pictures: 8MP at Superfine resolution: 4,496 pictures
Video: 640x480, 30FPS, 127 minutes and 38 seconds!!!
30 seconds of continuous shooting with no flash at max res: 34 pictures (Canon claims 1.4 shots per second). Please note, I got identical results with the my Sandisk Extreme III 2GB SDHC
* Transfer Performance
Test Bed: 340MB Video File, USB hub, on my desktop (AMD X2)...Each test was repeated 5 times and the average taken (what can I say, I'm OCD :D)
Using the supplied SD card reader: 17 seconds (20 mb/sec)
Connecting directly to the camera: 50 seconds (6.8 mb/sec - i.e. in line with the Class 6 rating)
Using the SD card reader and going through my laptop (IBM T41P): 29 seconds (11.7 mb/sec)
In other words, depending on your hardware it meets and/or exceeds the speed rating.Read more ›
The reader also allows me to interchange the 16 gig card with a Transcend 8 gig SDHC card that I bought separately, which increases the versatility of both items.
But wait, there's more. ;)
I own an ASUS EEE PC computer (Asus Eee PC 4G (7' Screen, 800 MHz Intel Celeron Processor, 512 MB RAM, 4 GB Hard Drive, Linux Preloaded) Pearl White) that comes with a built-in SDHC slot to enhance on-board hard disk capacity. With the 8 gig Transcend card, and the 16 gig card and the reader it comes with, I can use both if I want to slap 24 super-portable, solid state gigs of fast memory on my EEE when I'm traveling. I've run both cards through the SDHC slot without problem, and using the card reader, I've also tried both from all 3 of the built-in USB slots and from USB hubs attached to each of the 3 USB slots as well.
Bottom line? They work great -- and especially with the ASUS EEE PC.
Good job, Transcend -- highly recommended.
Unfortunately, this card is slow. When I turn on my Canon camcorder, I have to stare at a message saying "READING THE CARD" for 10-15 seconds before I can take a picture. The wait to take a movie is better, but still 4-5 seconds.
I tried my old 2GB Sandisk Extreme III card, and it is at least TWICE AS FAST, so I may have to send this Transcend back. Waiting 3-4 seconds is OK, but 10-15 is awful. I'm missing shots. I also need to see if the Transcend can keep up with 17 Mbps video mode. It claims to be "Class 6" speed, but maybe it's slow at random accesses? Frustrating.
