Default CF card for Canon 7D

Will this one be enough for stills and video?

Thanks.

Thanks.
All the 7D shooters must be on holidays The SanDisk 16GB
seems like a reasonable compromise between speed and price.
It is plenty fast enough for HD video. The only reason you might
consider a more expensive UDMA card is for high speed burst
shooting in raw or raw+jpeg mode.

Yes, perfectly fine, I've had no issue running them in my 7D (1DmkIII and 5DmkII as well). If you are going to machine gun lots of shots then possibly go faster but that's a waste as far as I'm concerned.

Thanks a lot folks. I found a good deal: a Trascend 16 Gb, 400x for $97 and only $7 shipping to Argentina.
What happens with shipping costs from Amazon and also B&H, i can't understand it. B&H will charge $100 for FedEx shipping a single CF card, which weights nothing! Its ridiculous. And they do not offer USPS.

I guess they don't have too many international customers which is a mistake for them to charge that much for shipping. That really turn people off.

Truth. And i can add that PayPal service is becoming a PITA too. Problems, problems, problems. And then polite excuses, excuses, excuses.
