memory cards and video

Hey, sorry for a another question so soon...
Ok so i have done my research (alot of it) and i am going with the K-x...the thing i am unsure about is the movie mode and what memory card is needed..
I can afford one which is a Sandisk SDHC 16gb (from the tiny photo it seems to be 15 mb/s) is this enough or do i need the 20mb/s or 30 mb/s?
I've never used video in a slr before so i'm not sure what speed is needed.
Thanks from Casey.

Ps. if all goes well i get it tomorrow night...yay!

A Sandisk 16 Gb with either 20 Mb/s or 30 Mb/s would be fine for video. For high continuous shooting (or burst), I would recommend a 30 Mb/s because the K-x has a small buffer memory (compared to K-7 and K-5).

Happy new camera
