    I was going to buy two 500x 32GBs for my Canon 7D, but then I saw this http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...DDCFPRO3_64GB_64GB_CompactFlash_Pro_UDMA.html

    Very reasonably priced, fast enough for my purposes (420x), and it'll be nice to not have to switch out cards as often. I mostly do video, at 30/1080p and 60/720p. I've heard good things about Delkin and so this is definitely looking like the best option for me at the moment.

    I'm curious what all you use, especially for burst photography and/or video?

    I don't have video on my DSLR but it utilizes UDMA cards. I prefer using the Lexar Pro 300x cards or my new favourite the Sandisk Extreme (60MB/s) cards.

    Spend the extra money and get Lexar or Sandisk

    Lexar and Sandisk are pretty much the de-facto standard in CF cards.

    However, there's nothing inherently wrong with that delkin card, but personally I'd only buy Lexar or Sandisk (I use sandisk)

    I use nothing but SanDisk cards, of varying speeds and capacities as I've added to them over time (ranging from Ultra through to Extreme IV and the new branding on the 60MB/sec cards, with everything in between). Lexar also make good cards.

    Cheap cards go wrong. I've seen failed cards from many makes, but never SanDisk or Lexar.
