Hi guys, did anyone tried this on their CANON camera especially 7D. I was just wandering if you can use this:
For that price, you can buy a 8G CF crad.
Not one that's as as good as a decent CF or SDHC card for video or high FPS photography, though.
A 7D is a camera that makes good use of fast compact flash cards, even the pricy 90MB/sec cards. Using slow SD cards will really degrade performance.
I ordered two more Sandisk 16GB 60mb/sec Compact flash cards from adorama 2 days ago for $120. I'd prefer these anyday to a haywired SD setup. There are no decent 60mb/sec 16GB SD cards for anywhere near this price.
The problem is, that when shooting raw even at at medium FPS speeds, a 16GB card is full in 30 minutes. I filled several cards shooting a rodeo with my 7D Saturday night, which is why the additional cards. If I'd used a SD adapter and slow SD card, I'd still be waiting for the buffer to empty.http://www.adorama.com/IDSCFEP16G6A.html
