Canon 7D Mk2 CF Card Recommendations

Canon 7D Mk2 CF Card Recommendations

Postby Yak 11 Fan on Tue 12 Jul 2016, 10:27 am

Hi,

I have recently bought a 7D Mk2 and need to get a CF card. I was wondering what those who have experience of this sort of thing would recommend in terms of:

Make
Best Capacity
Speed
Anything else I should bear in mind

I am mostly using it for still photos, but may try a bit of video.


Many Thanks
Yak 11 Fan

And when you get your card from Amazon, read this

and there are many other links about Fake CF and SD cards from Amazon out there.

Brian, the link above is an item sold by Amazon, not by a marketplace seller. I've bought from the same source and I'm completely happy, otherwise I wouldn't have recommended it.

I get my memory cards from Premier ink, they have that card at £39.99

never had any problems buying from them, but then again, I buy Lexar and not Sandisk due to the fake issus

Any card can have fake issues not just Sandisk.

I only use 16gb cards - they are not much to carry around and if it fails you use less than in 32 or 64 cards.

Some of my cards are 133x writing on a 7d mk2 - i used a few 160x and they were much quicker
