What SD cards do you recommend?
I'm looking for a good sd/sdhc flash card that is at least 2gb. I don't need a superfast transfer rate from the card to the computer, but then again don't want a ridiculously slow one either. I also don't want to spent over 70$ on a flash card. Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated...

Without going into any of the online stores, I did pick up a package of two 2Gb SD cards at Costco last week for $34. (Oh, Sandisk Ultra II)JonGive me something to shoot..

Hmm, I wonder if two extreme II sd cards are as good as one extreme III 2gb sd card which costs exactly the same..

2 1gb cards? Gives you more flexibility and picture insurance in case something bad happens (very very rare these days)..

SanDisk Ultra II SD are class 4 cards announced at 15MB/s (not sure about that, comes from the official website, Amazon gives it 10MB/s), whereas the SanDisk Extreme III are class 6, 20MB/s cards. So you'd be better off with the Extreme III, IMO...

Google "SD cards free shipping" - if you care about brand names there are some deals.

You need to understand the write speed relationship between your camera and the SD, and the buffer size of the camera. Download speed from the SD to the PC is a consideration, but usually not a significant one..

People have a tendency to believe a faster CF/SD is better, but the camera might not be able to take advantage of the speed, or it may have no value to the user depending on their shooting style..
