Would someone please suggest a specific SDHC card for the 1Ds mk2? I will be using a San Disk 4gb or 8gb CF type 1 or type 2 but am not sure about the SDHC card. I lack the digital knowledge to understand the difference between a SD or SDHC and I want to buy the right card, again in the 4gb or 8gb size.
Is there someplace you buy these memory cards that offer them at good prices? I'm not sure what price range is reasonable for the 4gb and 8gb cards. Thank you.
You don't really need an SD card unless you want to write to both at once for security. I'm finding out that doing that isn't such a cakewalk with the Mark IIs. With the Mark IIn or Mark IIIs, you can write JPGs to the SD as backup and RAWs to the CFs but you can't do that with the Mark II. You can only write RAW to both or JPG to both... and what I'm seeing now from other people is that it doesn't matter how fast of an SD card you use, if you write to both cards, everything to do with the Mark II's buffer becomes painfully slow compared to just using one card.
If you still do want a SD card, get a Class 10 SDHC. That means 10 mb/s and is just a bit faster than the camera can use.
