Who knows? Maybe Canon do but why spend money on a card that may or may not be reliable when there are others that are guaranteed to work?

Hehe, because the Transcend 400x 32gb and 64gb cards are cheaper, and I am cheap. :)

Re: any card over 60MB/s is overkill, correct?

I'm getting Deja Vu here, and thinking back to the days when we were encouraged to buy DV CAM tapes instead of cheap and cheerful DV tapes, and later on HDV tapes when normal ones worked just fine. I already own several high spec Transcend cards and find it hard to believe these will not work fine for slomo.

Has anyone tried the Transcend UDMA cards for high frame rate work?

All I've got to say before finishing my morning coffee is that if a person gets a card not on Canon's approved list and then has problems, do report so other people have the benefit of your real-world experience but DON'T complain!

So will the camcorder give you a message that says something like "card not accepted?"

Or will it still record, but the footage recorded will be messed up?

On the JVC HM100, if a card isn't class 6, it gives a rejection message right when you insert it.

Actually the Lexar cards are reasonably priced. Both the x300 and x600 versions appear to be recommended. No mention of the X400 ones though.

I use this card with my 5D MARK II and it works great , I was hoping that this card was going to work on my new XF100 as well but I think it is better not to risk it and buy a recomended card from the CANON LIST
