    Default Memory Card for Canon 7D

    I'm heading off on a surf trip to PNG in a few weeks and I want to get another memory card for the 7D. What is the best brand / size I should get?

    Thanks!

    I'm happy with Sandisk.

    I don't go for bigger than 16Gb cards. I can still get 600-700 full resolution RAWs. That's usually good for a session. Four of them and I'm right for a couple of days.

    Probably should go for at least an Extreme IV model, it's not the fastest rated card, but the price point is a bit lower. Slow cards take longer to clear the buffer when shooting multiple images, this translates into a delay before you can review images and eventually you have to wait to clear the buffer to take more images. Here's some info on memory card capability on the 7D:

    scroll down to where it talks about memory cards. Fast cards will be an advanatge for video, both recording (buffer issues) and playback from the card.

    Thanks Chris. I think I'll get a faster card so I can take advantage of the video capability.
