Hey everyone,

was curious what the consensus is on memory cards for VDSLR cameras...

im picking up the t2i soon and i am stuck between a transcend 32g and a Sandisk?

I know Canon recommends Sandisk but ive owned Transcend before and it was always good.

Looking at class 10 also as class 6 is the minimum....

so what do you t2i (VDSLR) users use?

I've had both, but the sandisk is VERY fast.

Neither gave you problems recording video?

Faster then the Transcend?!?!

Yes, no problems recording video and the sandisk was faster in my card reader.

I just bought my son a 16GB SD after getting one for myself this week.

It's what was recommended.

After reading the extensive CF and SD card review in the latest issue of PhotoPlus Canon Edition, I got a SanDisk SDSDXP1-016G-A75 16GB Extreme Pro SDHC Memory Card for the wife's S95. All our DSLRs use CF.

Or do you use a Mac?

The T2i records at around 45Mbps or just under 6MBps so anything class 6 or above would be fine.

In the last 11 years I have only bought Sandisk cards and I have yet to have a single problem. The Extreme UDMA cards keep up perfectly shooting video on my 5D2. For me, Sandisk is the only way to fly.

I use the Mac for all photo stuff, but there would be no problems.
