New for me k20d / sdhc suggestions?

I'm looking for an sdhc memory card. I checked the forums but didn't see much that was recent. What would be the fastest card that I could run in this model and out of curiosity what is the fastest this camera can transfer info (perfect world scenario) to the memory card. I couldn't find any info around.

thanks,

For the Pentax K20D, you just need to stick with Class 6 cards @ 20mb/s. Anything higher than that would most likely be overkill.

So that would be SanDisk Extreme III (old name) or SandDisk Extreme HD Video (new name).

I second the SanDisk Extreme, they are the absolute best. The sweet spot for size to money ratio seems to be the 8GB size, and I own two of them. Noticeably faster and best reputation for reliability.

Any decent class 6 will do for the K20d. Class 10 is overkill (if the price is extremely different) unless you have another use for such a card.

Welcome to the club by the way...

If you are shooting JPG, check out the Eye-fi cards. It might be even a
Great back up SD card. I find the wireless uploading to be a huge help as pictures used to stay on my camera untill I'd do a massive upload.

Thanks Pat, funny you should mention that. My uncle mentioned that card to me within the past 6 months and I forgot about it. Then I saw the giveaway here and said "Oh yeah. that card" I think it would a killer backup card.

To everybody else thank-you. I'm still looking up info on the cards. I never gave them much thought until I actually needed them. And I usually track tech stuff since I'm a geek.
