Exactly correct Christoffer. I used the 32GB Kingston Class 4 and only once in 10 hours of filming did it ever have a buffer problem. Obviously, once is too many times in a pro situation; but this was during an eval of the cam and these were the only cards I had at my disposal.

I use Sandisk class 10 extreme 2 8gb card. As a beginer i do feel like the 8gb satisfies my needs.

I don't need to. I choke a bit, but pay the price for SanDisk and roll on.

I know there are a lot of folks using Transcend cards and happy with them. Probably most are fine, but I see far fewer "tales of woe" from folks using SanDisk than either Transcend or Kingston.

Im using a Sandisk Ultra II class 2 16gb. (always thought it was class 4) and never had problems with it. But i would stick with sandisk. almost never read something bad about sandisk and my personal experience is the same. im getting another ultra II class 4 (they dont seem to sell the class 2 anymore) 16gb now.

EDIT

I just got the Sandisk Ultra Class 4 16GB shipped from amazing

amazingly it cant handle video - breaks down after ca 20 sec. of recording.

this really sucks.

my sandisk ultra 2 class 2 16 gb is fine with video.

does anyone know what might be the reason here for the class 4 to fail?

thanks

This card media business is really kind of interesting. For my video, I use 4 $20 8 gig PNY Optima SDHC bought at Best Buy for my T2i. From my Canon 5D Mark II, I use some pretty inexpensive Kingston Elite Pro 8 and 16 gig CF cards. Most users would probably not consider either of these.

Personally, I have concluded that the recommendation for the higher speed cards for the camera is centered around the high pixel count multiple exposure still needs, more than video issues. Since I never use those features, it really is something I am not concerned about.

Another thing that is clear is that there seems to be more problems with any cards with higher storage capacity. That is why I have stuck with 4's, 8's and 16"s.
