PB Tech have some new 16GB Class 10 MicroSD cards with SDHC adaptors for about $45. 

I bought one and it works great in my FujiFilm FinePix Real 3D W3 camera in the SDHC adaptor.  (I had tried a Class 4, but it was too slow to record 720p HD video.)  

This means I can swap the MicroSD between my camera and my phone to make the 3D pics available for upload from the phone without having to go home to connect to a PC.

It's a pain in the a*se having a disconnected camera, but at least these cheap and cheerful high speed chips provide a work-around of sorts.

I'm on a high fibre diet.

Ever had an an SD card fail??
I have an SanDisk 8GB Micro SD (HC) that simply crashed in my fone a week or so back. Can't read it in any device and any warranty requires proof of purchase (now where would I have put that back when...) to get an RMA. So it's for the bin.

Otherwise I've been using Apacer SD ( & microSD) from PB Tech without issue for a long while.
