What memory card for Canon 7D
Dec 5, 2009

I'm used to big memory cards. I currently can get 64GB of ram on my Canon 500D.
Now I just bought a 7D and need to switch (ouch) to Compact Flash.
I'm wondering how fast a card I should get.

I only shoot in raw so getting as long burst as possible would be nice although it's not critical. I see that the 90Mbit ones makes it possible to shot 24 images in a row in raw, but I don't know what the 60Mbit can, 17 maybe as the standard specs?

I also shoot a lot of film but I dont think this will matter anything since filming is fine on any card speed.

I'm considering getting a 16GB 90Mbit card which is pricy. And then get a 16/32GB 60Mbit card, which cost about half.

What do you guys think?
