Hi folks. I currently have a 4GB memory card in my K20D. I'd like to get something a little bit bigger, maybe an 8 or 16. What brand would you recommend? I want to start playing with RAW so that's why I'm looking for a larger card. The one I have now is a Sandisc.

As always, thanks for your input.
you need atleast class 10. cheap ones work well.

No you don't. Class 4 is plenty fast in my K-x with RAW.

As others have said, brand isn't very important. SanDisk, particularly the Extreme, is overpriced. Kingston and Transcend are plenty good. I'd go with the 8GB Transcend Class 6. It's a very reasonable good brand above class 4. It's better to have two 8GB cards than one 16GB incase one should malfunction, get erased, or get lost.
