I had a 2GB Sandisk micro SD card lying around but no number written on it.

My digital camera's card just died and it recommends a Class 10 card.

I bench-marked the micro SD card and this is what I got.



Is this an overperforming Class 6 card or underperforming Class 10?

Could be a class 8... – Windos Aug 20 '11 at 2:44

Since it never gets up to 10 MB/s, that should make it a class 6. Try some photos with it. If I'm right, all it will affect is the time between shots while it's writing to the card.

What about a Class 8 (never noticed them being sold though) – PoorLuzer Aug 20 '11 at 5:45
Never heard of a class 8 for sale. I don't believe they exist. – apathos Sep 14 '11 at 3:45
