Hey everyone, I mainly shoot landscapes and some walkaround photography. I will be shooting some videos with the 5dmk2 I just bought.
I am currently using 4x sandisk ultra II 2gb cards (was using with 40d)... they are 10mb/s
Both as far as memory and speed goes, I feel I will need to upgrade. I am deciding between 4x 8gb ultra II cards (the new ones - 30 mb/s) for $25 each or 2x 16gb extreme III cards (the new ones - 60 mb/s) for $65 each. Using the 4 smaller cards would be preferable for me I think because each fits about 300 photos and that way I don't have so many photos on one card, in case it gets corrupted or lost. And it would be cheaper to do it this way. Is the 30mb/s adequate for my use - I am mostly concerned about video... but I just recorded some video on my 10mb/s ultra II so I'm thinking the 30mb/s will be fine!
