Edge You definitely made the right choice. You can expect to see phenomenally smooth playback via HDMI in future.

killclimbz You won't regret getting a class 10 card. Not one bit. Nice find.

david_z Shit. I hope I didn't really pay $17 for it 3 days ago LOL.

david_z I think I got a 16GB micro SD card for about $17 on newegg the other day.

I've always used class 6 I think with the GoPro/Contour based on recommendations from others who suggested that as minimum.

killclimbz Yeah, get a higher class card for sure. I had problems with a class 4 card but it was also a low budget one to boot. Since I went with an SLR I just upgraded to class 10 cards and have no complaints. They are reasonably priced these days.

Filming With a Low Speed-Class SD Card

I've got a question for you videophiles out there.

So I'm gonna be doing some filming with the new Contour Roam I picked up, and currently I'm using what's probably a Speed-Class 2 SD Card.

My question is, for something like a Roam, does using a higher class card (6+) make a big difference in the quality of the film? Would you recommend going out and buying a higher class card?

I've noticed some artifacts in some of the film I've shot so far, which I've heard is a byproduct of low write-speed.
