Similar threads have been posted previously, but it is 2013 and new options are available all the time. Given current improvements and availability, what is your favorite

(1) Brand of CF card (& why)

(2) Size of CF card (& why)

(3) Quality / Speed of CF card (& why)

and heck, let's just add in

(4) Place / Vendor to purchase your new CF cards (& why)

Ive a 7d but id like to share anyway.

1. Lexar
2. 16gig
3. 1000x
4. B&H

Why: lexar cards in B&H are actually cheaper (around half the price) than the transcend and sandisk 800x equivalent cf cards in my country. I just ask my relatives going back here for vacation to bring the cards so i save on shipping and handling.


well hello

1. I have various brands - they all work. I prefer Sandisk & Transcend - not tried Lexar yet.
2. Big enough so you don't have to worry about it 8gb+, depends on your usage.
3. Speed - on a 5d Mk1 or 2, who cares? It only matters when you are downloading to your computer, if it's slow make a cuppa it will be done by then.
4. Any reputable retailer - there are fake cards out there.


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).
