    Hello,

    Recently bought a Canon SD800IS to replace a Canon SD450 (just wanted to get the IS and wider angle lense) to take on a trip to Japan. This is my first trip there and I intend to take an obscene amount of photos. I am, however petrified that I will have memory card problems, only because recently most of the cards I have used in the past have had an issue. I have used a Ritek 150x 2gb card that became completely unreadable or writeable after only a couple months. I have also used and Adata 4gb 150x card that is now only recognizable by my PDA so it has stayed there. I bought a 1gb 60x PQI card a couple weeks ago and I already got a memory card error from the new camera. I reseated it and it has worked, but now I don't trust it.

    Do any of the veteran SD card users have any recommendations for me? Price and value have always driven my purchases in the past, but this time around, I can't afford to lose any pictures. I can't spend too much money, but will definitely pay a premium if I am getting a reliable card (that is of course big enough and fast enough to take movies using my SD800IS).

    Thanks!

    Kingston is pretty cheap and reliable in my experiences so far with it. I got my 2gb on ebay for 12 dollars.

    I use SanDisk and Lexar cards. I have had zero issues with either of them. Panasonic SD cards are very good.

    I've always used SanDisk SD cards, SanDisk CF cards, and Kingston CF cards.

    Sandisk Memory Cards have always been reliable for me.

    I had an a-data card that just broke. A piece fell off it.

    Kingston, Sandkis, and Panasonic have all been nice to me.
