Default CF San Disk card for Canon 7D?

Will this one be good enough for stills and video with the 7D?

Thanks.

that is a slow cf card, but will work. But if you use the machine gun of 7fps, you may want at least a 60mb/s card which are 400x cards, and there are 600x card out there that was much faster. Transcend 600x is about 90 dollars.

I seen transcend 16gb 600x at 95 dollars couple months ago at newegg. But they average between 90-115 dollars.

Amazon shipping costs are simply ridiculous:

Items: $94.99
Shipping & Handling: $99.90

Total Before Tax: $194.89

Their business off shore is in the shipping, not in the product.

well that was a listing from the amazon market place from a 3rd party vendor approved to sell there. Think amazon themselves sells at 115, but not sure what their shipping is of overseas.

Thanks Shoturtle. I had one only previous experience with Amazon.
They are preposterous! I hate the very concept of Amazon.

yeah shipping down to your next of the woods from the US is about 40-50 from the big camera shops like BH and adorama. That is pricy.
