I just bought the Nikon D80 and I'm trying to decide what type of memory
card(s) to buy.
I have a desktop PC that I use a USB ported external 5-in-1 card reader
that supports SD and SDHC (according to the specs). I know for sure
it works fine with SD.
However, my laptop's built-in 5-in-1 reader supports only SD.
I probably will use the laptop more frequently for my photo-editing. I'd
like to get a 4Gig card. Do they come in SD? (I've only found 4G in
SDHC so far.)
If not, I guess that I can get another external SDHC-compatible reader
for the laptop, or swap out the one that I have connected to my desktop.
Am I better off going with two 2G SD's or 1 4G SDHC and getting a second
external reader for the laptop? (I'm not sure whether there are any
other things to consider such as relative reliability between the 2
Some of the Sandisk SDHC cards come with a mini SDHC card reader.
Personally I have several 2 Gig SD cards but find that I rarely use the
second card as I clear of the pictures as soon as I can and get them onto
my PC for archiving.
I also have a portable drive with card readers built in that I can copy
the cards off to and that is 40Gb so I just use that for longer trips.
Pete D, Your Vosonic (and mine) supports SDHC.
BRH, if performance is an issue, do more research. I use 4GB SDHC cards
my D80 and have a Sandisk Mini SD Reader which works really well. The
Vosonic is for longer trips, one of which is coming up in November.
I am torn between replacing the old Vosonic 3310 with one of the new 8390s
or just spending more and getting a new laptop and a mini card reader.
