Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera ?

I have a Nikon S3000 digital camera in blue and i recently bought a Sandisk 8 gb card for it and before i had a 4 gb card, as well a Sandisk. My 4 gb card worked fine and recorded videos but my 8 gb card does take pictures but its a bit slow and it will start to record video but after ten seconds or so it will say that this card cannot be read. Any help to what settings i need to change or is this the wrong card? Thank you.


Answers :

Sandisc makes cards in various speeds or "classes". For videos, it's best to use a class 6 or better card. Sounds like your new 8GB card is a class 4 or lower.

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150 i believe it records in 720p so im looking at 2 different Sandisk cards that are relatively the same price. Sandisk Extreme lll SDHC 16GB SD 16 GB 30mb per sec C6 (NOTE EXTREME 111 class 6) OR..... Sandisk Extreme 16GB SD SDHC 16 GB 30mb per sec C10(JUST SAYS EXTREME WITH CLASS 10) so which do you think is better and two am i even looking at the right cards?
