are there different classes of SD/SDHC memory cards? i bought one for my new Casio Exilim and its a Kingston 4gb and right below that it says class 4.(i havent tried it in the camera yet)
what does that mean, class 4 ? are all SD/SDHC cards compatible with devices that require SD/SDHC cards? or am i missing something?
thanks in advance.
btw, my new camera takes SD or SD/HC cards.
thanks in advance for the help.

The class just refers to the transfer speed. It's only really useful in a camera if you have something with high resolution that is able to take many pictures quickly, or when you're uploading them to your computer.

For a basic point-and-shoot, Class 4 is fine.
Class 6 is really only of value to:
High-end P&S units that save RAW files
DSLRs with high burst speeds
DSLRs set to RAW mode
High definition AVCHD video cameras
