As I recall the the manual says it runs best with Class 4. You can by higher classes, but it won't increase performance, nor will it decrease performance. Class 4 are older and may be harder to find, but they are usually less expensive. I'm running a Class 10. I forget what capacity it is.

Hope this helps some.

Here is what the manual says lol

Cards
Generally speaking you may use any micro SD, micro
SDHC or Micro SDXC card with a
capacity of up to 128GB with this camera. Larger ca
rds are most likely also supported
but not yet available. To avoid card compatibility
problems, always use quality cards
with a speed rating of Class 4. There are known pro
blems with a few cards that have a
higher class rating, for example some, but not all,
Sandisk 32GB Ultra (class 10) will not
work properly with earlier firmware versions. You s
hould use firmware v1.17 or above
with these cards. For the best compatibility use ca
rds with a class 4 rating if you have
them. There is absolutely no advantage in using car
ds with a higher rating. The most
compatible cards are genuine Kingston. At the time
of writing there are known problems
with some 64GB and 128GB cards which may occur when
the card is full and loop
recording is enabled.
Firmware versions up to v2.03 support cards formatt
ed with FAT, FAT32 or exFAT.
Later versions only support FAT and FAT32 but this
may change in future firmware
versions. Cards with a capacity of 64GB and greater
must be formatted using the In-
Camera formatting routine (see below) if they are t
o be used with firmware v2.03 and
greater.
Due to technical reasons, you cannot update the fir
mware if your card is formatted as
exFAT. The In-Camera formatting routine (see below)
will format cards to the format
required by the firmware. With firmware versions up
to v2.03 the routine will format
cards with a capacity greater than 32GB to exFAT. A
ll other cards will be formatted as
FAT/FAT32. Older operating systems, for example XP
64-Bit and Windows 2003, do not
support exFAT file systems unless you install addit
ional drivers. A list of exFAT drivers
can be found at
http://search.microsoft.com/en-
us/DownloadResults.aspx?q=KB955704
.
There are a few programs available, for example gui
format, that are capable of
formatting large capacity cards with FAT32.

You should always use cards from well known brands.
Low quality and no-
name cards, as well as some class 2 (or less) cards
, may draw more than 20mA current
than quality cards. This can result in unwanted ele
ctrical noise such as clicks, chirps,
hum and buzzing in the audio recording.

The following approx. recording times for 1080p vid
eos with a standard data rate are
as follows: 32GB Card = 4 hours 30 mins., 16GB Card
= 2 hours 15 mins., 8GB Card =
1 hour 7 mins., 4GB Card = 33 mins.

This manual assumes a compatible SD card is inserte
d in the card slot (except for
WebCam mode).

The card must be carefully inserted face down with
the gold contacts upwards and
facing forward. Do not use force or you could damag
e the lock mechanism inside the
card holder
