First bad card

For the first time I put a card in my camera and got a "check card" error. I couldnt format it or anything the weird part is it was one of the Panasonic 8 gigs that I hardly every used. Only a few times. oh well at least it happend before the shoot.

Hi Randy

My only card failure made me "blackball" the card so I don't use it again. I was up to probably the 15th or so clip (doing a property shoot where we do one room per clip) the camera went into record perfectly and I shot around 3 minutes of footage but it never went out of record. I just turned the cam off, took out the card and used a new one. I should have copied the previous 15 clips over and then seen if the recovery software could save the 16th clip but I didn't!!

After formatting the card worked fine but as it failed around the 4GB mark I will never know if the card would do the same thing after recording 4GB of data...it was safer to just scrap it.

Hmmm, haven't had any problems with my 16gb Panny Class 10's yet. I haven't some close to filling either of them yet though either.

I'm looking at buying 16gb Hoodman cards. They boast a zero failure rate. Anybody have any experience with them or think they are worth the money? A 16gb will run me about $90.

Sounds about par, price-wise, with the ATP Promax SDHC cards -- they also have a good reputation, and are industrial rated. The Sandisk Extreme SDHC cards also draw favorable reviews.

I not familiar with the Hoodman.
