My EOS-1D Mark II N will support CF cards up to 16GB and SDHC cards up to 8GB. Yet, it does not support the UDMA (high speed) rated cards. Thus my maximums are a non UDMA CF card, and a standard speed SDHC card. I cannot find any reference to a) what is 'standard speed' for an SDHC card or b) if there is a limit to the read/write speed of the camera.

Without knowing the exact speed. There is a write speed limit on the camera. Its common for users of older cameras (5D, older one series) to purchase high speed cards and then not see any significant increase in buffer clearance rate because the camera is the limiting factor.

Your camera may not support UDMA transfer speeds, but it should work fine with UDMA CF cards, just not at their full speed.

I'd agree with Hollis on working with UMDA cards but not at full speed....

As far as data transfer speeds from the camera I've looked and asked... Its NOT published anywhere. The best I've gotten from a Canon insider I know is that the cameras are "faster than any current or forseeable card of this type can handle". So when a new technology comes out for cards, then next generation of cameras will even be faster..

Just buy any good quality CF or SD card available. No need to spend extra on the really fast cards as you won't see any speed improvement. Cards should be backward compatible so no need to worry. My bodies are just one version newer than yours and they can't make the most of the latest fastest technology cards (no camera today can). If you have any concerns just call Canon Technical Support on 800-652-2666. They're open until 10pm on US east coast.
