Hi guys,

I'm ordering a Canon 7D, and I'm going to be using the video functionality quite a bit and I was wondering if anyone could tell me if a CF card I'm looking to purchase will be adequate for this. I know its 8GB and a larger size may be better, but I'm primarily just concerned about making sure this card is capable for recording the video, although I may choose the 16GB version instead, if the video will take up a lot of space in a short amount of time. Anyways, this one (I think both actually) is UDMA and has a 60MB per second transfer rate. The card I'm looking to order is at ... =pd_cp_e_1

Thanks so much for your input,

That's one of the faster cards on the market at the moment and should have no problems.

The 7D manual recommends a minimum of 8 MB/s write speed for video recording.
