I've always used SanDisk and never had a problem. I'm using a 4Gb but your 8130 will support 8Gb.

Sandisk as well...but I've never had an SD card of any brand fail, lose photos, etc. Pretty reliable technology.

Like everyone else so far I also vote Sandisk. I have never had a failure with that product. With PNY I have had two failures.

Sandisk

Highly respected in the professional digital camera field.

Most sandisk cards have a 5 year - life-time warranty too.

I am using a Kingston with no problems...best place to buy one is on Newegg.com. Cant beat their prices and if you dont like it or have trouble with it...returning it is NO problem.
