The Canon XA10 supports an SDXC memory card which is better than most small sensor size camcorders that have been available for more than two years. Most camcorders of this type and age support an SD memory card. This Canon video camera also supports an SDHC memory card. SDXC cards are SD cards but with a much higher capacity and faster processing speeds. They have a maximum capacity of 2TB (Terabytes).
An SDXC memory card is in fact the best supported memory card type amongst all camcorders that have been around for more than two years.
A MicroSD (Transflash) memory card is the worst supported memory card type across comparable types of camcorder.
SDHC cards are DS cards with a higher capacity of up to 32GB.
