Class 6 or better. I have a few class 6 cards and it'll do full HD @ 60 fps fine on my A57.

But, if I were to buy anything, I'd go class 10 UHS I. BH Photo was pointed out. Check Amazon as well. I actually last week, bought a class 10 UHS I one of those mini micro thingies that you insert into an adapter turning it into an SD card for under $20 from Amazon. Works perfectly. I figured, why not one of those mini cards because I could use it in those Android tablets which often accept those types of cards...

I actually never bought a SD card when I got my camera. I had a few class 10 micro SD and adaptors lying around so I am still using that with out problem. Yes that's the main advantage of them for me, the Android tables take them, which means I can take pictures and view it on my table when on travel. This saves me from taking my laptop with me and I get better feedback than my camera's LCD screen.

OP: if you have use case for wifi, look at the Eye-fi card. I think they are silly expensive hence been planning on buying them for many many months lol. I have a ftp server that I could upload my pictures to as back up. Eye-fi would help with this.
