Re: New 60d advise

I have been using Transcend cards for years now and had no problems so far.

Re: New 60d advise

I wouldn't be cheap on memory card if you are doing paid job. Transcend seems to be a good choice but I would go with Sandisk. My photographer came home with a new corrupted Transcend card. It's not someone I heard on the internet but my own photographer. Then I came across this thread

Just ask yourself can you afford loosing footage after coming home from a wedding. I can't. I rather not take any chance.

Re: New 60d advise

I've seen the exact case with a Sandisk card.
My experience so far says that failure has nothing to do with the card's brand. It can happen anytime with any card. Shooting with multiple cameras looks like the only safe solution.

Re: New 60d advise

Of course nothing is guaranteed in life. Using Sandisk doesn't mean it's 100% error proof. I don't mind getting ADATA or Transcend for my own digital camera for personal use, vacations, parties. But for paid job, I would rely on Sandisk.

Thank God for my Z5 that I can tape on a card and on tape at the same time!

Re: New 60d advise

Steve,

I had a similar problem with a 7d that I had the same msg and kept stopping recording. Its because I had used the card in something else and needed to format the card in-camera. Then since then no problems.

on the topic of cards...from personal experience the PNY class 10s are good cards especially for the price...I use the 8 and 16Gb but I do NOT recommend the 32Gb....for some reason the 32Gb buffers out pretty bad and takes at least 5 tries to get the card going and maintain for the full 12min....I learned that the hard way...8 and 16Gb I have had no problems since I got them...
