    I was looking to buy a 32 gig MicroSD HC and was wondering what class I will need to shoot 1080p video well?

    there seems to be a few 10 classes on amazon but are not 10 class speed. I wonder what the stock SD card's class is?

    any help would be greatly appreciated. My phone arrives tomorrow by 3, fingers crossed, so I will update class if I can figure it out when I get it.

    dancedroid so glad its finally out! VIVA physical keyboards!!!

    New Egg has an awesome deal on a Patriot 32gb Class 10 card, better than Amazon's prices. Although there are a couple people that were saying it wasn't quite Class 10 speed.

    The 16gb card that came with my OG Droid was a Sandisk Class 2. Can't be much worse than that.

    Great. Class 10 is what we need, that super fast read/write speeds for 1080p video. Oh can't wait.

    I stand corrected. That deal on the patriot card is gone today. Found another good deal on newegg though. I usually buy on Amazon, but new egg just seems to have better deals on flash memory.

    You need to see how many MB/s the video will be and choose accordingly. But I guarantee you it won't be over 4 MB/s (that's 240 MB/min for the math challenged). Why? Class 6 and 10 cards have issues due to their optimizations for sequential write speeds. Random read/write suffers and causes freezes and other non-performance issues in phones.

    Well I just checked both Amazon and NewEgg.com and here is what I found.

    Amazon is $9.00 cheaper plus you get a $15 MIR so you get $24 off compared to New Egg. If you have Amazon Prime (I do) then shipping is free. I need to order one asap.

    This is why I said that I stand corrected. When I checked yesterday, this card was listed for 52.99 on New Egg.

    I personally am not going to spend over $30 for a little flash card, I *think* I have this one in my Droid D right now:
    Newegg.com - SanDisk 16GB Micro SDHC Flash Card Model SDSDQ-016G-A11M

    My card says microSDHC, 16GB and there is a 2 in a circle in the top right corner (not sure what that means)

    I've had this since my Droid 1, and video recordings have always stuttered once in a while, so I guess it's not that high end.
