Can I use the highest Class SDHC card, as long as my device accepts SDHC?

(I thought this would be an easily Google-able question, but it doesn't seem to be, so here I am!)
I use a Class 4 SDHC card for my digital camera, and I have to wait a long time after taking a few photos for it to "catch up" and let me take more photos. I borrowed a Class 6 SDHC card and it performed much better. Can I use a Class 10 SDHC (or higher, if they exist) in my camera? I read the manual over and over, but it's a few years old, so it doesn't say what Classes I can use, other than I can use up to 32GB SDHC...
Same question with my video camera: I currently use a Class 6 SDHC card because the manual says "must use a Class 6 SDHC card." But it doesn't say if I can use any higher Class.
tl;dr: As long as my device can use an SDHC card, can I use any Class card that is at or higher than required per the manual?
