Wondering what you folks are using with good results. I'm getting mixed reviews on most 16gb class 10 cards so I thought I would see what is working for people here that have the T2i? Or does a class 6 card work fine? I just don't want to waste money on a card that isn't going to serve the purpose.

"Bargain" brands are an invitation to disaster. Sometimes even reputedly "good" brands can be problematic as Canon techs have advised some owners with problems to use SanDisk Extreme III Class (6), saying the Canon cameras can be a bit "brand picky".

One T1i owner (same minimum specs on cards stated in the manual as for the T2i) was losing video as his camera literally "shut down" video recording in the middle of a shot. He was seeing a buffer bar appear, fill up, and then the record mode would shut down.

This guy was using Kingston brand 16GB Class (6) cards - he had two - and thinking they might be defective he bought another. Same story.

Canon advised SanDisk Extreme III Class (6), he bought one and his problem went away.

SanDisk Class (6) are getting a bit hard to find, but Class (10) are plentiful and work just fine. That's what I use.

I'm wondering the same thing. I don't think I'll be shooting a lot of video, but it's good to have a fast enough card if you want to.

I've read in some of the reviews at Newegg the T2i doesn't like certain cards. Not that I trust any of the lesser known brands anyways.
Don't see any reviews of Kingston's 8GB class 10 SDHC. Panasonic's 8GB class 10 card is a little cheaper at Amazon (J&R). Only 5 reviews but all are positive.

I have some Transcend class 6 and 10 and they both work for great for video in my T2i

I also have some Patriot class 10 and they work great too.

So at least those 2 brands have proven themselves.


No bragging list - I just rent whatever the job requires.

I have been lucky with cards in my 550D so far, using Dick Smith and Kingston class 6 cards and SanDisk class 6 and class 10 cards and so far have had no problems at all with any of them :)

On the 5D MK II it has been found that UDMA cards are needed for video recording.
Some other cards stutter or allow short recordings...

I have been using an 8GB and a 16GB Patriot cards in mine and have had none of the problems some were having. I waited until Newegg got restocked and figured they were the new ones that have had the firmware tweek. Good so far.

I use a Sandisk Ultra class 4 and have had no problems. When I debated with the guy at the camera shop about using a class 6 or higher he showed me that they were taking video with the 550d using a class 2, no problems.

The Canon manual states you should use a class 6 or higher, so going with a class 10 seems to be a waste of money unless you get a good deal on it.

That's the beauty of it. Class 6 is becoming the standard, therefore the price has dropped significantly on the class 10. You can probably get away with class 2 but bet there will be some cases where it will not suffice. Class 6 to be safe, class 10 is just extra room.

I was able to borrow a transcend 8gb class 6 card at it worked flawlessly so I ordered a transcend 16gb class 6. hopefully it will perform as the 8gb did.

Interesting? I never called Canon when my SanDisk class 6 card was giving me trouble, I went and bought a Kingston 16GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Ultimate Class 6 - 133X card and no longer had any issues? thats really odd?

I used Patriot and Transcend SD cards -- both Class 10. Not a problem so far.

Update on my post:
I noticed that when recording video at 720p, the Transcend SD Card Class 10 is failing. Recording at 1080p is fine. Anyone noticed the same issue. I usually just record at 720p due to video size.
