Agreed here. The 7D, like most new releases since whenever it was that the Nikon D3/D300 came out, has a UDMA memory controller that has more than twice the bandwidth and can move data much more quickly than the older gear. If you shoot single images or short bursts, you'll be fine with 133x or even slower. If you shoot video or regularly fill the buffer with long bursts, then go straight for the 300x cards and don't look back.

When buying cards, look specifically for the brands you trust (Sandisk, Lexar, Kingston, and Transcend in my case) in the

The data is all too complex for this simple shooterWhat I can tell you is the Sandisk 60GB/s cf cards rock. Last night I was in a hurry and stuck an extreme 3 16GB card in my IV, it was painful.

I second that about the Sandisk 60GB/s cf cards. I have 1 16GB 1 that I use with my 7D. I picked this up for the equivalent price of 4 Sandisk Extreme III 4GB cards.

I've heard that there are a lot of bogus "Sandisk" cards for sale on line. I found the 32GB cards for $201.00 plus shipping at Buy.com, but ended up getting them from B&H for $239.00 just because I trust B&H.

That's true, there were a lot of cases of people a few years ago buying what they thought were 4 and 8 GB cards but the actual card was a 256MB effort.

just to add that most of these appear to have been via Ebay, which prompted Ebay to put warnings out about them

I ended up getting a bunch of the 32 GB Extreme 60 mb/s cards like the ones I already have. The 32 90 mb/s Pro cards looked tempting, but at an additional $140.00 a card, I don't know that it would be worth it. It's really difficult to fathom a faster card, I keep thinking my mirror is going to come flying through the top of the IV

Excellent design of that patch Jo


Message for every one attending Isap check your e-mail received e-mail with some info.
Ill quote a little from it...

SECOND AND VERY IMPORTANT: We are fast approaching the limit to the number of passengers we will be able to get aboard our three 56-passenger field trip buses (total of 168 passengers). We are therefore rapidly approaching the maximum number of ISAP-IX attendees. We are being forced this year to have a cut-off for the first time in our ten-year history. If you are planning to attend ISAP-IX, please sign-up now! Do not wait. We will be assigning bus seats based on registration dates of the last few registrants! The earlier you sign-up the better your chances of making the trek...Show more

So be sure that you have paid your dues so you don't miss out.. just my 2ct

The economics of the 90 mb/s cards don't stack up when you consider how good the 60mb/s ones are - 2 x 32GB 90mb/s cards come in more expensive than 3 of the 32 GB 60mb/s cards.

Like the new patch Jim/Jo, again...Nice work Jo. My programmer had about 5 hours into the first design you made Jo and we cut the first one out this morning. Got a few more trial and errors before we're done. Once we get part of it cut out we are going to silk screen it to match what you drew up. Will post a picture when it's done.

When buying cards, look specifically for the brands you trust (Sandisk, Lexar, Kingston, and Transcend in my case) in the speed ratings you need, then do the math for cost per gigabyte. It's often better to buy bigger cards, but you've got to check the numbers for that. My last purchases of fast 300x Transcends and the 400x Sandisks were both at $9.25/GB, and both I and my friends/family have been happy with the slower 266x Kingstons which can be found for about $5.60/GB... fully 40% cheaper and only about 20% slower than the 300x Transcends.


I need to pick up some cards before ISAP, and something funny is going on with Transcend prices. On my 7D, using a 4GB 300x Transcend, I get about 23 RAWs before the buffer stalls, and it is completely cleared in 11 seconds.

At Newegg, a 16GB 300x Transcend is $150, but a newer 16GB 400x is just $70 (60MB write speed). The 300x is probably high enough performance, but I can go even faster for a lot less.

A 32GB 400x is about $150.

Great patch there Jo & Jim. Its a super design!

... and I'm a staunch supporter of the "JimWilsonPhotography.com" on it as it IS Jim's gig to begin with!

I should have checked with Newegg. I just bought a 400X Transcend 32gig from Transcend for 189.00. One thing about it - the first time i shot it on burst mode it scared me to death - like Jim said... it's like the shutter is going to come out of the top of the camera and cut your head off!
Then uploading the pics to the computer went by seemingly twice as fast as the older 133X 32 gig Transcends.

I'm also fully supportive of Jim's stated aims and goals with the B-25 project.

I've thought a bit more about what I wrote above, and it does come across a bit wrong - I wasn't trying to cause offence just stating that it might be an idea to have a student's patch.

Oh- I'm not picking at you Mark! Not at all. Just stating my support for Jim's patch as is. Jo has done a nice job again - and I'm sure Jim had a say in what it said. I'll go with their wishes over mine any day. That's all I'm saying.

Holy smoke... $4.70/GB for 400x performance. Bought six, and thank you, sir!

Anyone want two Transcend 300x 16GB cards for the equivalent price of $75? I now have enough of the 32GB 400x cards that I'm no longer going to need these.

You're welcome. I'm swallowing hard with these - I mostly shoot sports (I have 10K frames on my 7D since October, just shooting ice hockey), all jpg. So I can get by easily with 4GB cards.

But I want to shoot RAW at Red Flag. Two 32GB CF cards are more than my airfare....

Are you offering BOTH 16GB cards for a total of $75? If so, I'll take them!
