B&H has the Extreme III 30mb/s for $89.95 with rebates-- $20 back for one, $50 back for two, $90 back for three.

FYI: Lexars have a sleep feature, which can cost a shot if waiting and shooting overlap (as noted by a reviewer working in Iraq).

Sleep? Tell me more about it.

I'm getting a 7D but I don't know what card to get.

I was thinking about the Lexar | 8GB Professional 233x CompactFlash Card | LCF8GBDRBNA233 UDMA, but after that I may consider another brand.

I just got 2 Kingston Elite Pro 32 GB 133x CompactFlash Memory Card CF/32GB-S2 for $75 each from Amazon. I had been using a Sandisk Extreme III 30MB/Second, I guess the recommended 'fast' card.

The Sandisk is faster if you shoot rapid RAW 18MB still you notice it doesn't stop. The Kingston is slower but in reality it's the only time you'd notice it. I don't notice it at all on video, no buffer filling up indicators or anything. And I guess about 1/3 the price of the Sandisk.

I guess if you have UDMA Firewire reader (I don't) and shoot rapid RAW then get the UDMA cards, but if you want lots of video time (and lots of room for normally shot stills) I see the Kingston, so far, as a really good deal.

Hey guys,
I'm about to buy a Canon 7D.
Which kind of memory cards do you advice and of what size ?
Lexar ? Sandisk ?

Yes, that's the cards I got. No troubles so far. The only trouble I had was the other day when I had my 16MB Extreme III 30MBS run out of space during an interview and I forgot to bring along the Kingston 32GB. So it really pointed out the usefulness of a larger card like the Kingston.

Hmmm.. I'm considering purchasing this cam (Canon 7D) however, I'm concerned by all the reports of 'errors' throughout this forumn post.

Errors are not really something that can be afforded if I'm doing a wedding shoot for instance. It doesn't appear that anything I've read in here suggests there is a 'perfect' virtually 100% error free card. Is that the case?

In my search for a good card at a reasonable price I came across this:
Lexar – Compact Flash Memory Cards

Good reviews of this unit from many enthusiasts using the 7D and 5DMII. I can't find a 32gb version, but 16Gb should be sufficient I would think for most uses.

I just fired off about a minute of full sized JPGs at high speed 8fps with the kingston, didn't seem to slow down.

I'm sticking SanDisk although after I initially overbought a 16GB 60Mbps I've switched to 32GB 30Mbps. You can get a 3 pack for $300 after a $200 rebate:

3XSDCFX3032GA31 SanDisk 32 GB Extreme III Compact Flash Memory Card - Pack of 3

Happy trails, Michael

Now to start getting bigger and faster CF cards. I just checked with New Egg. They have some but I was wondering if anyone knows of some real good deals that is still quality cards.

Like 16GB or 32GB with 233x or so.

Thanks.
