What is the difference between SD and SDHC Cards

In today's digital world, if you own a digital camera you would certainly have come across some sort of memory storage device. One kind of these devices is a secure digital or SD card.

A new variant of the SD card is now available often reffered to as the SDHC. The look and feel of a SDHC card is exactly the same as an ordinary SD but the difference is in size (capacity). SDHC cards usually hold more than 2 Gigabytes of Data. They are also faster than the "traditional" SD cards. (Note that some next generation SD cards such as class 2, 4 or 6 actually perform much faster than generic traditional SD cards).

Compatibilty is also another factor, not all devices that currently take SD cards as a storage medium are able to accept SDHC cards. You should check with your device manufacturer to see if it supports that format.
