I didn't realize they switched the xxD series to SD cards.  My 40D is CF so i assumed the new ones were as well.  I hope they stick with CF cards, mainly because I don't want to have to go out and buy a second set of cards. 

Oh wait, that's not what I'm supposed to say.  Let me try again - 'if this thing comes with SD cards, it'll be the final proof that canon has lost complete touch with any sort of reality (real or imagined), and  I will instantly burn all my gear and switch to Nikon.'

There...that's more like it.  LOL

Some SDHC cards are faster than your normal CF cards though of course CF has more pins so it still remains faster.  But truth is, SDHC approached speeds that are as fast as your normal CF cards and at a bargain price.  Since this is basically a starter FF camera, wouldn't SDHC logical?

IDK...i suppose it might.  I personally prefer CF because they are more robust and you can get some super high speed ones.  SD cards are a lot cheaper, so if I have to add some that is some solace.

There are two ways to look at this:

1. I want my rebel users to upgrade, so I'll put SD card slot in so they can use their current stuff.
2. I want this to be a gateway to pro models, so I'll put a CF card slot in to make the next step easier/give it the feel of a pro set up. 

Maybe it'll have dual slots so they can cover both bases?  I wish!  But not going to happen in an entry level body.

Sorry, but do you ever use SD´s? They´re fast, durable & cheaper than cf´s... For exemple the 16GB SD Extreme Pro 95MB/s from SanDisk for only 33 €, instead of more than 100 € for an CF Card with this speed...

I think that it is VERY VERY useful in photography and also taking video!

Usefulness has nothing to do with it, it's just that "pro" bodies like the 5d/1d don't have it, the 7d probably not because it was released before Canon switched to swivel screens (60d/600d/650d). So people *feel* like they have a p&s or video cam, and not the sturdy marvel of engineering they have paid thousands of $$$ for. If the 1d/5d would have swivel screens and the cheaper bodies not, everyone probably would be crying for one.

+1.  That's called innovation.  The swivel screen is very useful for me especially for landscape photography where I need to keep the camera very low to the ground.  Of course, still most of the time you need your OVF but don't you like it if you have the option whenever OVF isn't that comfortable?  It's the same with AF.  Previously there's no AF in most cameras.  Now AF is one of the most important feature of modern day camera.

so true, if you dont like it don't use.. but im sure everyone that that doesn't like it would eventually end up by using it!

No, I don't use them very much.  As I said in one of my earlier posts, I have CF cards for my 40d and 5d.  I do have a couple of older SDs for a point and shoot, and a pair of micro SDs for some android tablets.  They are the same model (Sandisk Extreme IIs i think) as my CF cards, and not as fast to transfer despite the label.  I do realize this isn't a scientific test, and SD cards have advanced quite a bit along with CF cards over the years.  They also seem fragile, though I've never broken one of either type. 

I simply find the CF card a more pleaseing format for me.  Definitely not a deal killer though.  Murphy's laws would imply there is a 100% chance of this cam being SD based, since I just bought a new set of CFs.  LOL.  But time will tell. 

I see the 7D AF thing has popped up again - there is always one person talking bad for every 5-10 in a thread that talking good about that AF system.  I wonder if there is a  QC issue, or if its a learning thing.  I'll have to do some more research.

I really don't understand people who say "I hate the articulated screen" ecc

I think that it is VERY VERY useful in photography and also taking video!

Ok, don't you like it?? SIMPLE don't move it! How is the problem??? Someone says "it is easy to break it"....... -_-!  if you use your things like a toy you could break everything!...

+1, yeah I still don't get this.  how can having the option to swivel the screen out be a bad thing?  I don't understand the "pro bodies don't have it" reason.  so what if pro bodies haven't had this feature yet.

well it USED to work. canon cant seem to fix it. so hence, the trade in. keeping it close by - not in use- for whenever an announcement is made. i hate the 7d. Glad your story isnt mile mine :(

Be the best you, screw everything else.

Totally agree with you!  ;)

Think like that: "pro bodies don't have it"......elderly people should think so ;)
