Best Compact Flash Card for Mark II?
« on: March 21, 2012, 03:30:02 PM »
Hi guys, I'm about to get the Mark II, but was wondering which compact flash card would be best for it?

Also, would you recomment a 16 GB, 32 GB or two 16 GB's?

Thanks!

a MKII? get a MKIII!
the best deal is to get two 16gb sandisk extreme cards, only 99 a piece now and if you shoot a lot you can be downloading one and keep shooting with the other.

Just bought a Lexar 1000x 16GB CF for my 1D4 and soon to come 1DX. It is UDMA7 and it is 2 times faster than my Sandisk Extreme Pro 16GB.
1GB of photos using a Firewire 800 Sandisk CF Reader take 1 minute with Sandisk, and 28 Seconds with Lexar.
Previewing and zooming are a lot faster in camera and I can take almost twice as many photos in high speed than i used to.

Only $149 at B&H
