    Default For advice: CF Card for 5DMk2

    Just keen to know, and I'm definitely out of touch on the latest on CF card. I have quite a few cards ranging from 1GB -4GB and they are quite old and well used. I intend to get one with a higher capacity - 8GB to 16GB. What's the 'highest' card - 64GB a DSLR like 5DMk2 can take? What's a good brand or CF card model to get?

    Thanks in advance

    Seems like the 5DMk2 will be able to take the Sandisk Extreme Pro 64GB with no issues

    All my CF cards are Sandisk, have 2 x 16GB (30mb/s) and 1 x 16GB (60mb/s). Generally, I would not put all the eggs in same basket (64GB card), will put across few baskets (16 GB card).
