View Full Version : Which memory card?

I have a 60 D and wish to use it for a decent amount of video. Is there a particular card that you would recommend for this? Thanks for your time.

Class (6) minimum. Anything slower and you risk the buffer filling up and shutting down your recording, sometimes in only a few seconds.
Avoid "bargain brands" like the plague. Many marked Class (6) and Class (10) fail to perform as claimed. You spent close to a grand on the camera, the media is no place to skimp. I've used nothing but SanDisk Extreme III Class (6) and Class (10) in my 60D and T2i and SanDisk Extreme IV CF media in my 7D and have had no problems.
Also do not buy SanDisk off ebay, that is the most counterfeited brand out there.

Transcend has class 10 8gb cards for cheap on B&H or Adorama. I prefer sandisk personally, but like Bruce said, avoid eBay.

Sandisk 20mb/s cards or Transend C10 if you don't have the budget.
