for video both will work... no problem.

for hi speed photo in full RAW the 90MB/s will work better (not that much buffertime).

saw this on Twitter a few minutes ago

Yup, those XQD cards are faster than CompactFlash. Check Rob Galbraith's Nikon D4 data-transfer speed tests: bit.ly/ImMiPw

Re: Hey, what kind of memory card for video?

Both should work fine, although I think the extra cost of the 600X is not really needed. 133X can sometimes stutter, but not 400X.

I have been using Kingston and Transcend and both work well. I think that the UDMA 32GB 400X CF cards are a perfect choice.

Thank you Guys.

Since the 5D mark iii had the option recording on both(one at a time) cards...So The difference between SD card and a CF card, lets say i get same capabilities on both cards(SD & CF) speed and capacity wise, they have no difference except the physical one. right? they do the same job (video mode only).

Re: Hey, what kind of memory card for video?

I have always preferred CF cards as they seem more robust but that may be a mistaken impression. SD cards are certainly smaller & easier to lose although they are about half the price for the same capacity. CF cards can have faster read/write speeds which isn't an issue with recording but does mean that you can dump the contents of CF cards a lot quicker than SDHC cards.

I shoot video on All-I and have tested both my Class 10 Patriot SD Card and Kingston 266x CF cards and see no difference between the two.

To be honest, while I like CF as well for the impression of perceived quality, cheapo class 10 SD cards work just fine as well.
