Yeah different cards can make a big difference.
There was a website I found once that rated cards for different cameras.
Some worked better with others.

It's like working with a Negative as apposed to a print.
The camera takes in a whole lot of visual information when you take a picture and then its itty bitty computer decides what to keep when making a jpeg and throws everything else out.
Working with the raw file lets you play with all that extra info.
At the least you can let your much smarter computer decide what to keep rather than the camera.

For example; that Statue of Liberty shot was very much a silhouette in the jpeg that came from the camera, and when I tried to brighten it to see if I could bring out detail, the sky would totally blow out.
Working with the raw file I was able to bring out the detail in the statue while keeping the detail in the sky.

No idea. It was years ago that I found it; since then I've just stuck with the Ultra II cards.

Just some photos I took recently from when I went camping and when I went to Montreal. I know a lot of them might need editing but I thought I'd show them first and get around to that stuff later:
