hi, i currently have a class 4 memory card and a canon 500D. If i upgrade to a class 10 card, will it mean that I shall be able to take pics "faster"? and will that help reduce the blur in the subjects when they are moving at a fast rate?What I understand is that faster card means your camera will be saving shots faster, thus more pics per second and sharper ones when the objects are moving. Am i correct? I dont care about the transfer speed from card to PC.

The idea is that, assuming your camera saves large photos ( Fine or RAW quality), this card will help you shoot more pictures per second. It will not affect the quality of the picture in any way (I promise). The only way you'll notice a difference is if you shoot in continuous mode and the first pictures are in rapid succession, while all that follow have a lag in between until you give your camera a few seconds to rest. I just looked up your camera, with 16mp photos, you most likely would see an improvement with a higher speed card such as this.
