Who can really help when it comes to CF card choosing?
Nov 23, 2010

I recently ordered a new 7D and im about to buy a CF card to have it before my camera arrives and Im just wondering what you guys think is the better choice between these two options because the price is exactly the same.

Ive read thousands of forums about different card speeds and how it affects the raw 8fps burst and video etc.

I will definitely be shooting video and would also like to have the option of shooting fast bursts without waiting for the buffer to clear. Keep in mind im not an sports photographer or anything like that so I dont really need to have constant bursts every second but neither do I want to wait 45 seconds after every burst for the buffer to clear.

these are the two options on amazon ive looked on ebay and other places but didnt really find better prices and amazon is fast and reliable so for a few bucks I dont really care.

let me know what you guys think, also what your opinions are on having one big CF card vs several smaller one.
