Promaster SDHC cards?

Anyone know anything about Promaster SDHC cards? My local camera store won't touch Sandisk or Transcend and only carries Promaster and Hoodman cards which they say are higher quality.

I was going to try a 16G class 10 ($99)

Plan to use in a Canopn T2i even more than my EX.

Can't speak for Promaster but I can for Hoodman... I have several, the largest being 32GB. I'm very pleased with them.

Never heard of Promaster !!!! There are many cards that have been tested and approved for use in adaptors, I would simply stick to one of them. I personally, have never had a problem with Transcend, both class 6 and some recentlly purchased class10. Been using Transcend in both my GY HM100 and EX1 for over a year, and more recently my newly aquired Canon 550D, never had a problem with either the old green belt or the newer red belt versions. I purchased the class 10 because they were only 2 more than class 6 for the 16bg card. As always, its a case of finding something that works for you, and sticking with it. But I certainly would not use an untested card, on the word of an individual shop. They probably dont know what an EX1/3 is, they are in business to make a profit, that normally means, buy low, sell high. Stick to the approved cards, and you wont go far wrong, they are all so cheap now.
