Mark II/n owners, what kind of CF cards go you use and in what size? What file size you you shoot in?

I thought it would be cool to see what others are using... so I'll start:

I shoot on L jpeg, and use Ultra II 2GB and 4GB cards, and just got some Extreme III 4GB cards.

I don't try to make animated gif movies very often so I use 40-60x cards in various sizes & brands. I start out with a couple 8GB Kingstons then move down the line until I run out (which never happens).

I shoot RAW 99% of the time.

You would have to use 8 or 16 no? anything less seems like using old film....

I shoot in RAW (might use sRAW some to save harddrive space but haven't yet). I have 2 16gb 133x Kingston cards that seek to perform just fine, as well as a couple 4gb cards from my 20D

1D MkIIn/1D MkII (soon to be for sale)

(MkIII pending, just returned the first one)


Sandisk UltraII's work fine for me.

I was using mainly 2gb cards, recently picked up 4 4gb cards when they were on sale at Costco. ($30)

I shoot mainly Large/Fine JPG's

5D series isn't known to be a blazing fast camera. Not many people buy it for shooting lots of 3.9fps burst sequences. So really, just about any CF card would likely do fine. Extreme IV or ducati cards are likely overkill for most 5D2 users.

I use a cheap 8gb card on my 5D mkII, it's only 5mb/s and I can do video, shoot movie and everything else normaly, I tryed extreme III, and it felt all the same....so I think I'll buy some 16gb cheap cards...

I guess we are talking about 1Dmk2 here.... I use 8gb extreme IV for CF and 16gb extreme II SD.... I shoot RAW 100%. The CF for sport and the SD for slow moving shots.... because of the memory card price these days... I can have a total of 2300 shots in my camera... no need to bring extra cards.... :-)


7D, 450D, EF17-40L, EF70-200/2.8L IS, 580EX, 550EX,..... Benro C-427 CF Tripod, Markin M10 Ballhead;

With all these gears, my photos still suck

The OP states "Mark II/n owners" in the first line of the post so its not the 5D II or the 1Ds;)

I'm using L Jpeg on my 1DII (set at 10 for file size) and I have 2x 1Gb Lexar Pro cards. I have never filled them either...always uploading to the laptop so they only ever get about 60-70 images at a time on it.
