That's amazingly cheap! I always use the MRU too, but for archival back-up I always add a tape, as tapes cost nothing nowadays. Never too careful!

I have never had issues whatsoever with the 133x cards, so I couldn't imagine what these 'issues' could be... Works fine all the time.

I bought a Hoodman Loupe for the LCD-screen, but I think the Zacuto is much better in quality. The Hoodman optics are not really good. Anyway, any loupe is better than no loupe for focusing. The advantage when using a loupe is that you can use the camera as a shouldermount type. Of course, you can also connect a bigger monitor (like one of the Marshalls) via HDMI, but that is only handy for static shots on a tripod.

Hello guys. I found this thread and I must say that I happy to see that there are folks like me who doesn't like to spent a lot of money on the top CF brands like Sandisk or Lexar(I consider them high professional, although). Recently I bought two Transcend 32 400x and I'm very pleased. I know that you might say that 133x it is enough foe a Z7 but, a little extra speed doesn't harm :). I think a higher speed helps for the 8 seconds buffer from the Z7 card recorder. Now I want to buy 2 more 32 GB, and as I red through forums and posts, I found that Transcend cards are made in a MLC technology and the Sandisk and lexar, kingston are in SLC(proffesional ones). The main difference is that SLC has 100.000 cycles of r/w and the SLC has 100.000 cycles. Having that in mind and the links bellow which brand would you go for?
