Re: What's the best CF card to keep up w/ 7D's trigger?

+1 for the Sandisk Ultra II 30 MB/s CF cards.

I had this same concern when I was able to purchase my used 7D. I had a 30MB/s 4Gig SD Ultra 2. I held the shutter for about 3-4 seconds shooting RAW (@800 iso). Had no trouble capturing the 24-30 shots in the burst.

Also, turned it to video and pointed it at the TV and let it go for about 4 minutes. When I review the video, no skips, stops, bumps. Just continuous, smooth video clip.

My Sandisk 30MB/s cards work perfectly fine. I have shot full RAW bursts for 4 seconds at a time and not seen slowdown.
