Is SanDisk 8GB Extreme SDHC Class 10 Memory Card compatible with Nikon coolpix S8000


I was searching for various class10 memory cards for my digital camera(DC) Nikon Coolpix S8000,  and found 

“SanDisk 8GB Extreme SDHC Class 10 Memory Card (SDSDX3-008G-P31)” card in some search result. So i just wanna know whether this will be compatible with my DC as its not mentioned in the “SanDisk Product Compatibility” for Coolpix S8000.

Can you please guide me which class10 card i can go for.



I dont think that your PnS cam will benefit with a class10 card and also you might not even see any performance gain in using the class 10 card. Nikon website says to use atleast a class 6 card while Sandisk website says that the recommended card for your cam is a class 4 card. Neither sites/company says that it will work with a class 10 card. I guess to be safe, I would suggest you go with a class 6 card.

I agree with jamieson. If you really want a class 10 card though I would check with Nikon to make sure it will work. If so your best bet is to go into a phisical store and by the card. Both SanDisk Extreme Video HD and SanDisk Extreme cards are now class 10 but that has not always been the case. They were speed bumped from class 6 to class 10 but the SKU was never changes so ordering online you dont know exactly what you will get. 

Thanks Jamieson,

Actually i was not able to find class6 cards on the internet so i went for class10.

thanks again.
