What class of SD do you use with your Q?

Is using the fastest advisable or would a simple class 6 or 10 of any brand be sufficient? For video and stills.

I just pull a card from my pool of Sandisk cards. I use a variety, either Extreme III or Ultra II cards.

Hi Clicker,

My main card for the Q is a PNY Professional Class 10- 20 MB/sec 8 GB. My secondary card is a Sandisk Extreme III Class 6 - 20 MB/sec 4 GB, I'm a believer in using cards that probably outperform the camera's write speed as I like to chimp and usually want to review in the least amount of time.
